Garlic Mushrooms Fave!

I consider this a fairly "short" recipe, meaning we're a little light on the mixture here, at least for 20 standard supermarket mushrooms. I usually just eyeball this one until the proportions look right: twice as much parsley as cheese and enough butter to hold it all together. I generally like making the butter mixture ahead of time and leave it formed in a ball overnight to let the flavors develop a bit before removing it and re-softening to use. They serve these by the truckload at Gilroy's annual Garlic festival, from whence this recipe is derived.

Ingredients

  • 20 mushrooms
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup parsley, minced
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp butter

Preparation

Soften butter. Mix garlic, parsley, Parmesan and butter together and let sit to let the flavors develop. Meanwhile, clean and remove stems from the mushrooms. Fill caps with mixture and set in a 13"x9" glass dish.

Cook at 400F or under the broiler until the mushrooms begin to soften a bit. The crust will likely brown a bit, especially in the broiler.
