the ingredients for garlic butter mushrooms with blue cheese
- mushrooms ~ cremini or button or a combo of both
- salted butter
- garlic powder
- kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- blue cheese
- fresh herbs ~ thyme, parsley, and rosemary are some favorites
Sharp, salty, and pungent blue cheese is my first choice for this recipe. But feel free to substitute your favorite cheese. Try Parmesan, sharp cheddar, creamy Monterey Jack, or spicy jalapeno cheddar cheeses.
how to clean mushrooms
Unlike other vegetables, it’s not recommended to give them a good rinse under running water to wash mushrooms. They are porous so they soak up lots of liquid. If washed in water, they will become mushy and lack in flavor. Rather than wash mushrooms in water, wipe off any dirt or debris with a dry paper towel. Store clean mushrooms in a paper bag in the refrigerator. If kept in a plastic bag, condensation will form and lead to slimy mushrooms. Yuk!
chef cooking tips for baked mushrooms
- A tip for roasting or baking vegetables is a game changer for me. When preheating the oven, put the baking sheet in at the same time. Not only does the scorching hot pan prevent the vegetables from sticking, it also speeds up the baking time.
- Mushrooms cook down and shrink A LOT when baked. Make the whole 3 pounds in the recipe. I promise you they will all be gobbled up.
- Keep the mushrooms whole for this recipe. Remove any large stems so there will be a nice little pocket to add the blue cheese.
- Keep the crumbles of blue cheese on the larger size. You want the cheese to fill the mushroom caps.
- Use fresh herbs when possible. Not only do they have a bright herby flavor, they add a punch of color to the otherwise brown and white dish.
These delicious garlic butter mushrooms can be served warm, at room temperature or cold. They would be great to serve at any parties this summer. And they are a hearty vegetarian option too. Toss with some pasta or even zucchini noodles for a meatless meal.
