Baked Garlic Portobello Mushrooms

This is a tasty, easy starter for an Italian meal or a cold winter night.  Good parmesian cheese really makes this dish sing.



  • 4-5 portabello mushrooms, cleaned and stems removed
  • 3-4 T butter, melted
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • a few pinches of dried or fresh herbs of your choice (I recommend rosemary, oregano, or parsley)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 c grated parmesian or asiago cheese


  1. Place mushrooms face up on a lightly greased baking tray, and preheat oven to 200C/400F.
  2. Combine butter, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Distribute mixture evenly over mushrooms.
  3. Bake uncovered for 10 minutes, sprinkle lightly with cheese, and bake another 10-15 minutes until done.
