Perfect Creamed Mushrooms
When it comes to mushrooms most people either love of hate them. We are a house divided. I love them but my husband hates them. I almost have him won over with this recipe when served with a nice juicy steak. The combination of the shallot, wine, and cream just brings out the perfect flavor in these. So besides just eating the mushrooms out of the pan, what do you do with them? A few suggestions I have are to use them as a side dish alongside or spooned over a protein like steak, chicken, or fish. I ate this particular batch spooned over baby greens topped with a fried egg. Perfect for breakfast or brunch. You could make these and toss them with cooked pasta or over polenta for a satisfying meatless meal. Or, double the recipe and serve it as a side with your Thanksgiving meal.
What you decide to do with them is up to your choice but just know that whatever you decide, it will be delicious! I say this serves 2, that is being conservative. It depends on what you are doing with them, mixing into pasta or spooning over a steak it could serve up to 4 but eating them as a side with the meal or as the main component, like my egg and greens salad, it is more like 2. They are addicting and I can easily eat half of this recipe by myself! One tip to share is do not salt the mushrooms until the end, if you do it will draw out their water and make it harder to brown them in the pan. So what is the verdict, do you love them or hate them? If you love them what is your favorite way to eat them?
