Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms

Again with the garlic....  I know that I might have a problem, but how could I pass this up?  An easy side dish to a meal--just throw the ingredients together and put it in the oven which in turn makes the kitchen nice and toasty.  It's even healthy!  (Yes--fats are healthy especially when you use real butter and in moderation of course!)

Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms
from smitten kitchen

Serves 4

1 pound mushrooms (cremini or white), halved lengthwise if large
8 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
2 teaspoons lemon juice (optional)
1/4 cup parsley, chopped (optional or used as garnish)
  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Toss mushrooms, garlic and oil together.
  3. Place mushrooms in a baking dish.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Roast 15-20 minutes or until tender and garlic sauce forms below the mushrooms.
  5. Serve.
I left the capers out because I didn't have any, and I can only guess that I didn't add lemon juice or large quantity of parsley because these smelled so delicious that I completely forgot.  I only added it because it made it look pretty (you know... as an effort to make my pictures prettier!).  It's delicious without it, or you can try it with the lemon juice and large amount of parsley.  You can bet that I will make this again, and again, and again....  You get the picture!
