These Balsamic and Thyme Roasted Portabella Mushrooms makes a delicious, simple appetizer or side to go with your Thanksgiving meal. Or if you need a little something to sustain you at lunchtime as you spend your day cooking away in preparation for the big feast, there’s nothing better than a quick-to-make snack like this one.
If you want to go above and beyond, stuff the centers with a little bit of goat cheese after they come out of the oven. YUM!

Step 2: Whisk olive oil and balsamic vinegar together. Drizzle over the mushrooms. Thinly slice the garlic cloves and sprinkle them over the mushrooms, getting a slice or two inside each mushroom. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of fresh thyme; season with salt and pepper.
Step 3: Roast at 425 degrees F for 5-10 minutes, until desired doneness is achieved. Eight minutes was perfect for me.
