Just as The Blue Lion is a classic Jackson eating establishment, some of it’s menu items have become reliable favorites for locals and visitors alike. When we were putting together Issue 3, Dishing received this letter from Alice Thrasher, of Montgomery, Alabama:
My husband and I have been eating at The Blue Lion for years and especially like the rack of lamb and the stuffed mushrooms. The lamb recipe is in a local cookbook, but not the mushrooms. I’ve tried to make the mushrooms by guessing the ingredients and have not quite gotten it.
Many at-home cooks have played this same guessing game, but no one has to play it anymore with the Blue Lion’s stuffed mushrooms because we have the recipe.
