Your Key Ingredient:

NESCO Reversible Grill and Griddle

Grocery Ingredients:

4 portabella mushrooms, stems removed, rinsed, and dried well
3 teaspoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons diced shallots
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons finely diced fresh basil
1 1/2 teaspoons finely diced fresh chives
Salt and pepper as desired

Instructions:
  1. Preheat NESCO® Reversible Grill and Griddle to medium. Place griddle near an exhaust hood, as the oil may produce smoke.
  2. Place the mushroom caps on a plate. Add the olive oil, shallots, garlic, basil, and chives to a bowl and blend well.
  3. Spread the olive oil herb mixture evenly over the tops (the flat side) of the mushrooms with a small spoon.
  4. Place mushrooms, flat side up, on griddle. Cook about 5 minutes.
  5. Serve as a side dish (sprinkle with shaved cheese if desired) or as the filling in a sandwich. Makes 4 servings.
