And Then There Was OnePosted by in Food
I bought a package of two portobello mushrooms, intending to make Roasted Portobellos with Rosemary (Oct Everyday Food). I liked the sound of this recipe, but I admit I wasn’t quite sure how to fit it into a meal. A note at the bottom of the page suggests using them in a veggie burger, which would have been good.
I ended up making this on a crazy night and we just had some salad and bread with it. I say “it” because we only ended up with one mushroom. I cleaned them and left them on the counter. One of our dogs helped himself to one of the mushrooms, leaving me with just one!
I chopped up a tiny clove of garlic and added some dried rosemary, olive oil and salt and pepper and roasted this in the oven at 450 for about 10 minutes. It turned out quite nicely. Mr. MarthaAndMe and I split it and ate it with our salads. It had a nice flavor and was very juicy. The garlic and rosemary gave it a nice depth of flavor. I just hate how portobellos always have juice that runs all over the plate, turning everything brown.

I must say you made me laugh when I read your dog had eaten the second mushroom. He should have waited until you cooked it! All joking aside, I find mushrooms with garlic make a quick and tasty meal, paired with green salad and bread. Your kitchen must have smelled wonderful.
This dog has a habit of helping himself to things from the counter. A few days earlier he ate several small plums I had sitting out. I’m at the point now where I put a gate over the doorway to keep him out when I’m not around. He took the mushroom while I just around the corner in the next room. I didn’t even hear him do it.
I once was defrosting a leg of lamb on the kitchen counter when the dog got it. He ate the whole thing half frozen, but the bone got stuck in his back teeth. Had to take him to the vet to get it unstuck. Can you believe the vet yelled at me for giving the dog the bone??? I’ve never been so insulted! Not only did I lose our dinner, I had to pay the darn vet!
I would be mad too!
Love mushrooms. I use sliced portobellos in veggie lasagna. I hate the brown juice too, ugh.
