Mushrooms are not something I grew up on. I had no idea how to cook them, but I’m becoming more comfortable with making them.
Mushrooms became somewhat of a necessity because of their high vitamin D count. When you live in Alaska vitamin D is impossible to get for about 8 months of the year, which is why I am now a mushroom making fool.
The secret to mushrooms is to have tons of liquid fat. Mushrooms are little sponges so you really need to use more fat than you think. I usually use butter but I’ve also used bacon grease and olive oil.
12 OZ baby Bella mushrooms
1 stick butter (Use real butter!)
1 tsp garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
Feta cheese (optional)
Cut your stick of butter into smaller chunks and add to pan.
Sprinkle garlic, salt, and pepper.
Remove from heat and sprinkle feta. Serve immediately!
This is a quick easy side that contains few ingredients! Simple cooking makes life much easier!
