51

Ingredients

16 even-sized open cup mushrooms, stalks cut level

3 tbsp corn or vegetable oil

¼ c unsalted butter, softened

3 cloves garlic, chopped very finely

2 tbsp fresh thyme, chopped

1½ tbsp lemon juice

salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

¼ c fresh breadcrumbs

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6. Lightly fry the mushrooms, cap-side down, in hot oil for 20 seconds.

Arrange the mushrooms in a shallow roasting tin with the stalks facing upwards.

Mix together the butter, garlic, thyme, lemon juice and seasoning. Spoon a little garlic butter on to each mushroom, then lightly press the breadcrumbs on top. Either refrigerate for later use, or cook immediately in the oven for 10 minutes.
