Roasted Garlic and Butter Mushrooms

What is the best way to have mushrooms? With butter and garlic, of course! These mushrooms taste amazing, and I could literally have them for a side dish every.single.night.

I was talking on Facebook the other day about how I went to a restaurant and had escargot. They way they serve it with mushroom caps on top, and everything is slathered with garlic butter.  Thankfully these aren’t slathered in butter, but there is enough butter flavor for it to taste like what you’d get in a restaurant.

They shrink up a lot in the pan, so I really squish them in there before they’re cooked.

    Doesn’t the mushrooms leave out much water as they cook….. Every time I roast mushrooms in an oven they always end up in a pool of mushroom juice. Does the variety of the mushroom matter..

      There is definitely some water that comes out. But since you’re roasted at a high temp that extra water burns off. I find they are quite watery when they aren’t quite done yet…more so in the beginning stages. I just use the regular white mushrooms.
