In college, I had two people in my life with mushroom aversions.
The first was my (now) husband who just hates mushrooms...he detests them...cannot stand them.
The other was my roommate.
See, here in Western Pennsylvania, some old mines (or just caves) were retrofitted into mushroom caverns. The most famous of these caverns is the one that Mr. (or rather Mister) Rogers toured.
And my roommate happened to spend her summers in the deep dark caverns harvesting mushrooms for minimum wage.
So she did not particularly care for them.
So over time, I didn't really have an option for mushrooms as they are verboten in this house.
Well, A friend of mine now runs a organic veggie buying club and I can get local organic mushrooms for $1.88 a pound, and a girl cannot turn that down after all, sometimes a girl just wants some mushrooms...and if you are going to break the rules, you might as well go all out...
So here you go...my go-to mushroom recipe
1 lb white button mushrooms stems removed and cleaned
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (go ahead and get the good stuff not the mystery powder in the green can...it's worth it.)
2 cloves of garlic (grate it after grating the Parmesan)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (or toast a piece of bread and grate it after the garlic)
2 tsp Italian seasoning
a bit of garlic powder, salt, and pepper
1/4 cup olive oil
What did you make this week that was SCRUMPTIOUS!
