Garlic Butter Mushrooms are a quick and impressive side dish that are a staple for meals in our house where steak is served. They roast in the oven just like your favorite vegetables would and after a quick toss in some butter they are ready to be served. This Garlic Butter Mushrooms recipe is so popular in our house even people who swear they hate mushrooms always end up taking seconds. It also happens to be a perfect basic recipe for how to cook mushrooms for other dishes.
When it comes to preparing these mushrooms I just brush the tops of them clean and cut a tiny bit off the bottoms of the stems. As a kid I used to watch my mom peel the tops of the mushrooms completely off so I thought that was the way to clean them until I was working along side a chef who saw me peeling the tops of the mushrooms in horror and asked me what I was doing. Since learning I didn’t have to peel the tops I use mushrooms much more often now, they take almost no time at all!
16 even-sized open cup mushrooms, stalks cut level
3 tbsp olive or coconut oil
1/4 c unsalted butter, softened
3 cloves garlic, chopped very finely
2 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 c fresh breadcrumbs
Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6. Lightly fry the mushrooms, cap-side down, in hot oil for 20 seconds.
Arrange the mushrooms in a shallow roasting tin with the stalks facing upwards.
Mix together the butter, garlic, thyme, lemon juice and seasoning. Spoon a little garlic butter on to each mushroom, then lightly press the breadcrumbs on top. Either refrigerate for later use, or cook immediately in the oven for 10 minutes.
