I love mushrooms! Bill, not so much. So this is something I like to prepare when others are around and then I can share. When you understand that a mushroom “is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus” they really don’t sound so appealing, but they are really tasty and quite delicious! People who don’t care for them say that there is nothing good at all about them, but in fact they are pretty healthy. They are actually a good source of B vitamins, such as riboflavin, niacin, and the essential minerals, selenium, copper and potassium. They are a low-calorie food usually eaten cooked or raw and used as garnish to meals. They are often referred to as the “meat” of the vegetable world. I will eat them raw, cooked, stuffed or just about any other way one might fix them! This is an easy, but delicious appetizer or topping for a steak or on chicken!
2 pounds of Button Mushrooms (white or baby Bellas)
1/2 Stick Butter, melted
2 Garlic Cloves, pressed1/2 to whole package Ranch Dip Mix (Hidden Valley)
1-2 Cups White Wine
Melt Butter over medium high heat in skillet. Turn frequently until the buttons begin to brown and sear on all sides. Add smashed garlic and allow to cook for another two to three minutes.
Add white wine and stir in ranch mix, stirring until dissolved. Simmer over medium heat until wine reduces by about a third.
I served these hot in a crock pot as an appetizer at a girls night!
