Mosaic Monday! Mushrooms!

Welcome to another Mosaic Monday! This time I'm doing mushrooms! Stop by Mary's blog, The Little Red House, to see all the others who have joined in this week for her Mosaic Monday event!

The recipes in the Mosaic are:

Mushroom Soup

White Pizza with Mushrooms and Onions

Chicken Marsala

Spinach Salad with Riesling Vinaigrette

and I made brandied mushrooms tonight. With a shell steak and some grilled onions. Sort of from Paula Deen. I didn't follow it exactly. No kidding. I'll link the original. I liked mine a lot. I never made it Paula Deen's way yet.

Brandied Mushrooms
source: Paula Deen, Food Network
Printable Recipe

2 pounds fresh mushrooms, sliced lengthwise
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup brandy
1/2 shallot, chopped
couple splashes of Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper

In a large skillet, saute the sliced mushrooms in the butter until they start to brown. Add the chopped shallots. Stir it around. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Add a couple splashes of Worcestershire sauce and simmer a bit. Add the brandy and continue to simmer until mushrooms are tender and the sauce has been mostly absorbed.

and you can't end a 4th of July grilling weekend without a hot dog in our house. The Griller grilled them perfectly. and he didn't do too badly with the steaks either. practice makes perfect!
