Ritz Crackers and Parmesan Cheese

Courtesy of Chuck Partak - Coal City, IL
I am basically a new shroomer but still a shroomer nevertheless. My neighbor down the street is what I'd call a professional shroomer. He and his wonderful wife let me in on this delicious recipe. Pretty simple. Adjust recipe depending on your number of table guests or personal gluttony.
After tasting these I thought I'd died and gone to Heaven.
