If you are a Mushroom lover, these Creamy Dill Mushrooms are definitely for you. Mushrooms in a Dill cream sauce, with a slice or two of Garlic toast and you are in heaven !

I always serve this Mushroom dish as an appetizer, but it will work equally well as a side dish.

Today is our last day of Winter, tomorrow Spring starts, but to be honest, it did not feel like we even had Winter this year. Nights were a little chilly, but not much. And I can only remember one (yes, one single!) day when I wore a jersey.

Also no long sleeved blouses, but mostly Summer T-shirts and blouses. I must have mentioned our wonderful weather in Gauteng a thousand times already !

Anyhow, during Summer, we usually (most of the time !) have an appetizer, followed by a Chicken, red Meat or Seafood salad, which is more than enough for us at dinner time. Of course we are also huge dessert lovers – I mean, who is not ?? Therefore a light dessert might follow the salad as well.

But getting back to the Creamy Dill Mushrooms recipe – I make the main dish, whether it is a salad or a cooked meal, first. Depending on whether the meal can sit a while (whilst we enjoy the Mushrooms as an appetizer), or can cook on it’s own with me not needing to run to the pots every 5 minutes, I make the Mushrooms last.

The Creamy Dill Mushrooms is not a dish that likes standing as with most Cream based dishes. As soon as it is done, I serve the Mushrooms immediately, whether as an appetizer or side dish.

As with my Mussels in Lemon Garlic-Butter Sauce – link after recipe on this page, I serve the Mushrooms (as an Appetizer) in the skillet to my family. When we have friends over, I usually make small individual servings.

I like to use any kind of Mushroom, but the plain, everyday White Button Mushrooms are my favorite. Now, depending on the size of the Mushrooms I use, I might leave smaller ones whole, cut larger ones in half or even quarters.

 

Do remember though, that Mushrooms shrink quite a bit whilst cooking and you want them to turn out just the right size to be able to scoop a piece (and sauce!) up with a slice of Garlic toast.

My favorite Garlic toast – a French loaf, sliced, buttered and toasted ( I like to toast the bread in a BBQ clamp, like the ones used for Fish etc, over the coals) – after the slices are toasted, rub with a few pieces of Garlic, or use a Garlic spread – not too much, as the real taste must come from the Mushrooms and not the bread !
