I don't really know many people who aren't a fan of garlic mushrooms. I love them and I don't even like mushrooms that much normally. If you'd like to know how to make these little golden goodies and the accompanying sauce I have the recipe for you right here:
It's a bit makeshift because I'm not the sort to stick to recipe rules, but 12 mushrooms made a nice snack for three of us :)
BREADED GARLIC MUSHROOMS
Mushrooms (duh) - Button mushrooms would probably be best but as a student I just have to make do with whatever is in my fridge!
Breadcrumbs - just pour enough in a bowl to coat all your mushrooms.
Flour - again, in a bowl, as long as you have enough to coat them.
1 large egg - beaten and ready to coat the 'shrooms.
3 cloves of garlic - crushed, minced, doesn't really matter as long as it's made mushed up enough for the flavour to come out
100g butter - don't want to over do it, I'd stick to the recipe on this one ;)
1) Heat the garlic and butter together in a pan, on a gentle heat, until the butter is melted. Also, preheat the oven to 180'C (I think thats 356F...)
2) Allow garlic butter to rest on lowest heat while you wash the mushrooms.
3) Add the mushrooms to the pan with the garlic butter and give them a good mix up so they are all well coated.
4) Take a fork and one by one dip the mushrooms in the flour, then the egg and finally the breadcrumbs and then place them on an oiled baking tray.
5) Pop this into the oven for 15 minutes and voila you have a delicious mushroomy snack.
DELICIOUS DIPPING SAUCE
Garlic Butter - "waste not, want not" right?! So instead of throwing away the rest of the garlic butter in the pan save it so you can use it to make the sauce.
Pour an unhealthy helping of mayo into an appropriately sized bowl for a dipping sauce, add the garlic butter and mix it well. Add a sprinkle of paprika and a dash of worcester sauce to taste. Give it another mix, cover it with cling film (Saran wrap?) and put it in the fridge until the mushrooms are ready!
