Caramelized Mushrooms

I recently posted a recipe for Homemade Sausage &Caramelized Mushroom Pizza that we absolutely adored.  Well, I decided that the fabulous mushrooms that topped that tasty pizza deserved their own post.  Mainly because they are good on, and as an accompaniment to, so many foods!

I love to eat them alongside a nice steak, mixed in with scrambled eggs, on top of a juicy burger, in a veggie wrap...I eat them with everything!  Seriously, they are amazing and so versatile.  And for those who don't eat mushrooms because of their texture, these will be the mushrooms to convert you into a mushroom lover.  They are beautifully browned and caramelized until they are almost crispy.  Yum and yum.

I always say that I need to cook more of them at a time because I nibble on way too many before they hit the table.  Addictively delicious!  Try them!  I'm sure you'll love them, too.

  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste

  1. Place a medium skillet over medium-high heat to preheat.  Add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil to the pan and heat the oil.  Add the mushrooms to the pan in a single layer.  Season with salt and pepper. (Hot oil and a hot pan are important here, so the mushrooms will get nice and browned.)  Let cook for about 5 minutes without stirring.  
  2. Stir the mushrooms around (they should be starting to get nice and golden by now) and reduce the heat to medium.  (At this point, you can throw a teaspoon or so of butter into the pan as well, if you like a buttery flavor!)  Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for an additional 5-7 minutes or until they're as browned as you like them!  (I like mine cooked for a long time until they're almost crispy.)  Add a little more oil to the pan if they're not browning as much as you'd like.
