Bake your mushrooms for an awesomely delicious, light and easy side dish! This Baked Mushrooms recipe goes great with almost any main dish.
Hubby and I have been on a mission to add more veggies and less carb/bread products to our diet. To keep it interesting I’ve been experimenting with new ways to cook and serve our favorites. (I’ve still not made cauliflower “mashed potatoes” yet, but I’ll be testing that soon- we just keep eating the cauliflower before I have a chance to make it. I wonder if I can fool the kids with mashed cauliflower?) *Update: Well that was a no-go, lol. I could not fool the kids (or myself) with mashed cauliflower. Not even with a ton of butter, cream and crumbled bacon…
One of my favorite veggies is mushrooms. I especially love portobellos and the common button mushroom. Raw, sauteed, grilled or baked. They’re yummy prepared so many different ways. Today, I want to share my favorite way to prepare mushrooms for a side dish.
You’ll love how easy this recipe is. Just a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, baked in the oven and they are delicious! You can serve them on their own or use them as topping on pizza, pasta dishes or toss them into your morning eggs.
