Here lately I’ve been bound and determined to up my grilled side dish game. It’s been lacking, I admit. Nothing could possibly be easier than these dilly dilly grilled mushrooms. And very few things could be as addictingly tasty. I love mushrooms to begin with, and I’ve always been a fan of dill. Now, I get all that plus buttery goodness and a bit of salty garlic flavors. I like the butter mixture so much that I usually double it, making sure that I get plenty of it down into the gills of the mushrooms as they cook over an open fire.
You could actually substitute your favorite herb or spice for the dill for something different when you make some dilly dilly grilled mushrooms. Red pepper flakes are an awesome change. Same goes for oregano, basil or, believe it or not, smoked paprika. You’ll never eat boring mushrooms again, but if you prefer something with a bit of a kick, try my spicy grilled mushrooms too! And my version of Michael Chiarello’s best button mushrooms is out of this world also!
Dilly Dilly Grilled Mushrooms
- 1/2 pound medium fresh mushrooms stems removed if desired
- 1/4 cup butter melted
- 1/2 teaspoon dill weed dried is fine, but you'll want to use more
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- Fire up your grill for medium-high cooking.
- Place mushrooms into a grill basket or thread onto skewers. (If using bamboo skewers, soak them for 30 minutes in water before using).
- Combine the butter, dill and garlic salt. Brush 1/3rd of the mixture over the mushrooms.
- Transfer to the grill and grill for 10-15 minutes or until just tender, rotating occasionally and brushing with the remaining dill mixture a few more times.
