Not usually, I do them with butter and they taste nice (not as nice as fried but still ok)!!

slice em .. put worcestershire sauce on them .. cover em and about a minute .. then stir and see if they need a bit more

really depends on quantity

I do this sometimes for breakfast - mushrooms on toast with lots of black pepper

You microwave mushrooms?

Hang your head in shame.

You're the sort of person who feeds their child non-organis pasties. And I wish to have nothing to do with you, madam.

Hello, my name is BernieBear and I too microwave mushrooms (for frequent snacks!) I usually bung them in a bowl, a little bit of water, cover and then 2-3 minutes in a microwave. Bloody lovely.

Some people love chocolate, I happen to snack on microwaved mushrooms (it's quicker and less to wash up than grilling or frying). oh I also love anchovies and olives. Pregnancy changed me

That first bit was in an AA stylie by the way. Also I am not pregnant now (my ds is 2.9) but the taste buds never actually returned to normal, nor did my boobs for that matter!

Eww at the thought of microwaved mushrooms, aren't they horrible? (says she, who's never tried it!)

i imagine they go rubbery and watery, yak.

i do love grilled mushrooms on ciabatta with pesto and mozzarella
