One more vegetarian mushroom slider for your super bowl party! I'm really having a mushroom moment.)
Hen of the Woods or Maitake mushrooms are a great stand in for chicken. Although, I'll eat just about anything if it's slathered in wing sauce. To clean them, gently dust with a soft brush. Pulled chicken may also be used for those who prefer meat.
Makes 8 sliders.
