Garlic and Balsamic Roasted Mushrooms

Fresh mushrooms are tossed in a flavorful vinaigrette and roasted to perfection… savory oven roasted mushrooms, on your table in 30 minutes!

ย Yep, I’m back with another mushroom recipe! ย I told you guys, I just can’t get enough of them. ย This recipe is a fast one… 30 minutes! ย My hubby still prefers my Slow Cooker Ranch Mushrooms, but that’s just because he’s a ranch fanatic… whereas I, am a balsamic and garlic fanatic ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย

I don’t know about you, but I could eat mushrooms with just about everything, and even make a meal out of them! ย When you make these, you’re going to want to double it and eat half of them yourself.

Just 8 ingredients and 30 minutes of your time… that’s all it takes. ย With us being back in the school year, those quick meals and side dishes are a must during the week.

The trick to great tasting mushrooms is not to wash them. ย I know, that sounds kind of gross… I mean, they have dirt on them! ย Instead of running them under water, which can make them sort of rubbery, just take a damp paper towel and wipe off the dirt. ย Unless they’re really dirty, then rinsing them is a must.

Just trim any super long stems and toss the wiped down mushrooms in a bowl with the oil, vinegar, garlic, and thyme.

Lay the mushrooms out on a baking sheet with a rim or a baking dish and scatter the pieces of butter throughout.

If you don’t have thyme, you could substitute dried thyme or even fresh or dried rosemary. ย I love the way fresh herbs elevate the flavors!

Pop the baking sheet or pan into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, giving it a shake about halfway through baking.

I like to sprinkle some minced fresh parsley over the mushrooms.

You know me and fresh herbs… I’m obsessed ๐Ÿ™‚

These are truly so delicious, I hope you try them! ย They’re great alongside just about anything, but I love them with a nice steak (post coming soon for that!), some Caramelized Onion Beef Sliders, or Easy Lemon Chicken Piccata! ย Or pair it with some Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta Caprese and have an appetizer dinner ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Tried these today. Delicious!! Will do again but with more mushrooms.

  2. Made this last night (after a random google search) with Portobello mushrooms. First born thought I had added nuts. Delicious. Best mushroom bake. Thanks Chunky Chef.

  3. Easy, delicious, versatile! Just pulled these out of the oven and cannot stop from eating them! I used sliced mushrooms so they ended up caramelized and chewy . . . amazing with a drizzle of balsamic reduction.

  4. I would have given 10 stars if possible. I absolutely love mushrooms and usually cook them on the stove or grill. First time ever in oven. I made these last night with steak and making them again tonight with chicken. I poured off the excess juice about halfway through when giving it a shake. OMG the juice is so good that I could drink it all day long. I seriously dipped my steak in it last night and I am a steak purist, usually never putting anything on it except for maybe horseradish. Thank you so much for this extremely simple yet delicious recipe. I could eat these every day all day.

  6. Can the butter be replaced with olive oil, not allowed to eat butter (heart attack)

    • Hi Michael ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve never made it fully with olive oil, but I’ve made it with half oil and half butter and it worked just fine, so I think all oil would work as well ๐Ÿ™‚
