Roasted Garlic Mushrooms-- by Anonymous

Mushrooms, garlic, butter, thyme.. Some of my favorite flavors!

Found on Facebook:

These looked so delicious that I had to add them here.  I found several different links to these 'shrooms, so I unfortunately have no idea who originated these.  If I find out, I will certainly post the credit!

  • 16 even-sized open cup mushrooms, stalks cut level
  • 3 tbsp corn, vegetable, or olive oil; your choice. (I'd try olive oil first.. these mushrooms sound as though they were meant for olive 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


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6. 
  2. Lightly fry the mushrooms, cap-side down, in hot oil for 20 seconds.
  3. Arrange the mushrooms in a shallow roasting tin with the stalks facing upwards.
  4. Mix together the butter, garlic, thyme, lemon juice and seasoning. 
  5. Spoon a little garlic butter on to each mushroom, then lightly press the breadcrumbs on top. 
  6. Either refrigerate for later use, or cook immediately in the oven for 10 minutes.
These sound so easy and, as I love mushrooms, I can't wait to try them.  I wonder how they would taste with just a touch of wine mixed in with the butter/garlic mix...And why not onion?  So many possibilities...   Hmmm....
