This is not your ordinary Rarebit..but it is so good..I have made it several times; you can add more mushrooms if you like ,you can add fresh ones or wild ones or those in a can, drained. You can add or delete any of the vegetables and add you favorite....sometimes I add salad shrimp, diced fine,or cooked chicken or leftover grilled beef....it's all good and a real treat for family and friends....we love it!
