Author Notes: These oven-roasted mushrooms are lusciously coated with butter, garlic, and Dijon. They're a perfect little afternoon snack or side dish, especially with lots of hot, toasty bread.stephanie le

Food52 Review: I used basic button mushrooms to test this recipe since that's what I had on hand. I'm sure it would have been even tastier with criminis, but even with boring old buttons, it was outstanding. This is the kind of recipe I love to have in my back pocket: simple ingredients, combined to perfection. The earthy flavor of the mushrooms is enhanced but not overwhelmed by the garlic, shallots, lemon juice, and mustard. Give me a big hunk of toasted bread, and this is all I need to be happy.foxeslovelemons
