Baked Mushrooms with Red Wine and Parmesan Crumbs
Hey there, friends. I’m glad you’re here. I don’t say it often enough. This space is so special to me, and I’m glad to share it with you. Join me at the table today for some Baked Mushrooms with Red Wine and Parmesan Crumbs.
It’s been a rough week (month…year) in America. At times, it’s felt like hate has become the new norm. We have ridiculed and mocked each other. We have drawn lines, vilified the other, yelled over and at each other. Social media has provided a place for us to speak our minds without consequence, and we have acted like children given a playground without a principal.
This type of event always seems to bring out the best and worst in people. I’ve decided to cling to the best. During a season of uncertainty, doubt, and confusion, I have witnessed incredible kindnesses. I have seen people of all persuasions reach out a hand, offer grace, choose to give someone the benefit of the doubt rather than assume the worst. It’s the start of something, a seed of healing. We water that seed by treating each other tenderly, by listening carefully to each other’s stories, and by seeking to understand rather than prove we are right. Then we get to work, together creating an America that is big enough for all of us.
What better time to heal than during the holiday season, when our tables are full of casserole dishes and people we love. There will probably be people you disagree with around your table. That’s great. Love them. Talk to them. Listen to them. I’m praying my heart is as soft as salted butter this season. I want to hold my convictions closely and my love loosely. I want to seek common ground, wherever it may be found.
Speaking of common ground, let’s talk about mushrooms. Most of my friends and family seem to be divided over the issue. They love them or they hate them.
I am firmly in the love them camp. I put them on Cast Iron Ribeye Steaks, pack them onto pizzas, and revel in the mushroom-packed glory that is Creamy Mushroom Soup.
This year, I found a new way to up my mushroom intake with these Baked Mushrooms with Red Wine.
I will share my love for rich, earthy mushrooms soaked in butter and red wine, with hints of garlic and thyme.
I will proclaim the goodness of crispy Parmesan breadcrumbs sprinkled over top, adding a savory crunch to each luxurious bite.
For my friends who hate mushrooms, I will offer grace and pass the rolls instead. There’s enough room at our table for all the mushroom-y convictions our hearts and tastebuds hold.
Mushrooms may not be the best place to find common ground, but Parmesan cheese is. Now there’s a food we can unite behind. Real Parmigiano-Reggiano (the kind with the pin holes on the rind) adds a nutty, aged flavor to almost any dish.
It’s the key to this Easy Parmesan Pasta, the extra sumpin’ sumpin’ on top of balsamic roasted green beans, and the lovely surprise ingredient in this Parmesan Basil Chicken Salad. You can never have too much love or too much Parmesan.
