Sauteed Mushrooms

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

I am a huge mushroom fan! I love mushrooms any way they are served but they are especially good when sauteed! I eat these all by themselves and they are yum-o-licious!
I saw a trailer for the new movie Julie & Julia and got so excited! You have to watch this trailer! I could swear this was a movie about me, I am Julie Powell! I was once lost and found myself through my cooking! You see, I went from being a child living with my parents to being married and having my own child. There wasn't time for any self exploration or hobbies. So, as you can imagine... as my boys grew older and needed me less and less I became more and more lost. I had no idea what to do in my newly acquired free time. I decided that I needed a hobby, everyone needs a hobby! I've always enjoyed cooking so it seemed natural that I start a cooking blog. I didn't start my cooking blog because I wanted people to read it, I started it for me and my family. As I post recipes I imagine my boys one day making them for their own families! It's like my own personal cooking scrapbook, I love it!

Ingredients
1 pound large white mushrooms, cut into quarters
2/3 cup butter
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Directions
Melt butter in pan over medium heat. Add garlic, mushrooms and Worcestershire sauce. Stir to coat mushrooms. Saute until mushrooms turn brown and start to caramelize, stirring occasionally. Takes approximately 10-15 minutes. Drain excess butter and serve immediately.

I'm excited to see the movie too! I think that I've built up enough movie equity with Transformers and Wolverine that I'm taking my hubby to this one and Harry Potter. Can't wait!

These mushrooms look great. My 6 year old son LOVES mushrooms and even steals them off our plates! I better make him some of these!

I could easily eat a side of sauted mushrooms with almost anything, I love them too. I usually saute them in just a little butter, sprinkle them with crushed red pepper flakes and a little soy sauce.

I never thought of Worcestershire sauce in sauteed mushrooms. I'll certainly have to give this a try.

Hi carrie, First time here ....U have wonderful recipes dear. The same story goes for me. Just started cooking as my hobby and started a blog to store all the recipes I tried, thinking that my children can refer it in future, if they want to cook.... hahaha it sounds funny right? coz I am just 23 and I have a son who is just 2 years old LOL... But my intention of starting the blog was same as yours.
The mushroom looks great and very easy too. Will try it. Thanks for sharing it.

Looks like my kind of movie! And as for the mushrooms, they look so good! Hubby loves mushrooms in any way, shape, or form. I will have to try them. Maybe with our chinese dishes.

WOW! I'd never even seen a preview for that movie..probably because I fast forward through all the commericals on my tv. Thanks for posting it! I can't wait to see it now. :-)

Those mushrooms look devine! I am a HUGE mushroom fan too and I remember the first time I had sauteed mushrooms. I was in awe of the flavor..then I was hooked. Thanks for posting this! :-)

These look sooooo yummy!

And by the way, I CAN'T STAND Jessie! Could he love himself anymore? Does he ever stop flexing??? Why oh why did they pick him over Jessica?!?!?! I really liked her, and would have liked to see more of her :)
Speaking of that, writing this made me remember that it is on tonight... now I know how I am spending my evening!

Mmm, mushrooms sauteed in butter are one of life's simple pleasures.
