These Roasted Mushrooms are such a deliciously easy side dish, perfect for serving for dinner with a steak or roast chicken. Or use them to make a delicious mushroom sauce for stirring through pasta.
The mushrooms are dotted with butter and then baked in the oven with garlic and thyme. This creates a wonderful garlic butter that slowly soaks into the mushrooms, giving them so my flavor and keeping them tender and juicy.
This simple side is naturally gluten-free, low carb and so easy that you'll wonder why you haven't cooked mushrooms in the oven before!
How to Roast Mushrooms in the Oven
Roasted or Baked Mushrooms benefit from some form of fat, this stops them drying out in the oven.
Here we are using butter. Once the mushrooms are in a baking dish the butter is dotted over the top ready to melt over the mushrooms.
In addition to the butter, we are going to add two of mushrooms best friends! Garlic and Thyme.
Mushrooms and Garlic is a match made in heaven, especially when paired with butter and some floral herby thyme.
When the mushrooms are placed in the oven, the butter melts and slowly as the mushrooms release some of their wonderful juice, you get a rich garlic butter at the bottom of your roasting dish.
How long to roast mushrooms for?
Mushrooms need to be baked at 400ºF/200ºC for 30 minutes.
You can also increase the temperature to 450ºF/230ºC and roast for 20 minutes.
I prefer the longer cook at a lower temperature as this gives the mushrooms time to fully soften and release some wonderful mushroomy juices into the melted butter. And it is that mushroom infused butter that makes this side so delicious and packed with flavor! Perfect for spooning over a chicken breast - which can be roasted at the same temperature for 20 minutes!!!

This dish is beautiful before it is cooked. Just look at the roasting dish of mushrooms. It is so pretty. But the finished product is all about the taste. And let me tell you that taste is AMAZING! These roasted mushrooms aren't the prettiest, but I don't care because prettiness fades. What matters is what is inside. And when it comes to food that means how it tastes. And these taste good!!!!! Real Good!!!!!
