Baked Baby Bella Mushrooms

Do you ever play around in the kitchen and come up with something that's a riff on another recipe but you like your rendition a lot better?

Did that sentence even make sense?
I have a recipe for Garlic Baked Mushrooms that I love, but this rendition, OMG good, as well.  

I found some Baby Bella Mushrooms on sale last week, bought them, then realized that the menu plan for the week, really didn't lend itself to having mushrooms added to it.

I did have Tapas, so I pulled the mushrooms out, washed, and halved some and quartered some others and decided that they might make a nice addition to Tapas.

I think I was right, cause they disappeared in short order.

All I did was put them down, turn my back for a couple of minutes and the plate was empty!

I love it when that happens.

Not really a recipe here, just a how to.
 Melted about 3-4 tablespoons of butter, and added three crushed, chopped cloves of garlic and one shallot cut into very thin slices.   Warmed the garlic/shallot mixture up

and then poured it over the mushrooms, tossed them up a little and baked them in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes.

Had to take a picture before I put them out.
And I did snag one before all the other people ate them.
These would be so good as a side to a steak or ...
I bought some more mushrooms before the sale ended.   I have plans for them.  'giggle'.
