My Heaven: His Hell

D’s not a fussy eater but he does not like mushrooms at all and I don’t think there is a verb strong enough to express his loathing of blue cheese.  I, on the other hand, love both and had an utterly divine lunch featuring both today.   Can’t recommend it highly enough.  Unless you are D, of course.

Preheat oven to 200 oC.  Dot a field mushroom with butter and season.  Cook in the oven for 15 minutes, basting occasionally.  Remove mushroom from oven and top generously with blue cheese.  Place back in oven for another 5 minutes until the blue cheese is oozy and bubbly.  Eat in a floury bun topped with the roasting juices and large amounts of flat leafed parsley.

  1. Nummers! Exactly the type of thing I love…and hubby would start dry retching if I even attempted to make it ;D Looks great, though…will have to keep the recipe in mind for when he goes away on a business trip sometime!

  2. for me it is just purgatory – not keen but there is a chance of heaven and I an not in hell – a bit like my kitchen right now

    seriously – I am not that keen on mushrooms but they can surprise me in such a good way and I think I might just love this

  3. Love mushroom burgers, but not a big fan of blue cheese, bet it would be good with feta though.

  4. haha! My husband is the exact same when it comes to mushrooms. Whenever he’s not around for dinner I always take advantage of the situation and make something with mushrooms: last week it was total fungus-overload: Carluccio’s porcini flavoured fettucini with mushroom sauce AND fresh mushrooms…. YUM! :-D

  5. YUM. Two of my favorite flavors. My husband doesn’t like blue cheese either. Weirdo.
    There’s this place in the park near us called the Shake Shack, and they do delicious old-fashioned burgers and hotdogs, but they also do a portobello mushroom burger I absolutely love. It’s raining (and snowing!) today here, so maybe I’ll stay home and make yours instead : )

  6. Looks scrumptious to me. Sadly I seem to have developed some kind of odd intolerance to mushrooms so have had to cut them out – I’m really missing them so this photo is taunting me!!

  7. Definitely my heaven too, I don’t understand why so many people don’t like mushrooms (particularly men I find)
