Roasted Balsamic-Glazed Mushrooms
It’s easy to glaze a skillet of sautéed mushrooms with sweet-tart balsamic vinegar. But what if you want to make a bigger batch?
Why This Recipe Works
Adding a sweet, thick balsamic glaze to cooked mushrooms is easy to do in a skillet, but we wanted to make enough to feed a crowd. We start by microwaving 4 pounds of mushrooms to drive off moisture, preventing slimy ’shrooms and a watery glaze. A preheated baking sheet jump-starts the browning process, and adding the glaze toward the end of cooking prevents the vinegar from scorching. To round out the sweet-tart balsamic flavor, we add brown sugar, butter, garlic, and thyme for a thick, rich coating.
