I saw this on Foodtv yesterday and I can't wait to try it. Mushrooms are glazed with a garlic white wine lemon sauce with a little thyme added. Small white button mushrooms were used and left whole for a beautiful presentation. Great for a dinner party. Recipe courtesy of Michael Chiarello.

Great mushrooms. Follow the cooking times exactly as they facilitate the proper browning (carmelization) of the mushrooms ensuring really succulent results. I loved the taste of this and the wine glazed the mushrooms beautifully at the end. Yummy.

These are really delicious mushrooms. I think that next time I will try to cut the oil and butter in half- the flavor is sooo yummy but man alive are they loaded with fat. The lemon, wine and thyme is a really great flavor combination for these mushrooms and REALLY, the key is to let them caramelize in the beginning. So, so good! Thanks for sharing!

These are awesome and I couldn't stop eating them. As we were cooking, I was munching! That is the only way I can describe that fantastic experience. I ate so many mushrooms that I didn't eat dinner and they were serving steak for a small gruop of late-nighters. Thank you for posting, Diane
