I am at my family's house for Father's Day when my father busts out the grand desire for some mushrooms. So, I decided to document this endevour in an attempt to allow my fellow goons to enjoy the fungi known as the mushroom the corect way.

So first you want to start off with a good olive oil. We chose olive oil because we have a lot of Italian in our ancestory and well it is some good shit.

Here is a close up of the specific brand of olive oil we used...

Now, coat the bottom of the pan with some of th olive oil like so...

Add your wonderful mushrooms to the small skillet you have selected to use for this...

So, as you can see, the skillet was too small, so I decided to exchange the contents into a larger skillet...

And here is a shot with the larger skillet... If this occurs, remember to add a little olive oil on the top just to be sure enough is there...

Now we need to add some heat to this concoction. Start out with 75 percent heat and adjust it as time goes on. By the end I found that 50 percent heat was perfect. Start out large and go down so that this whole process does not take too long. Now, do a little stir job on the shrooms to get the hot oil all over the mushrooms...

Now, I like to have some onions in my mushrooms. I find that it adds some flavor and as Emril says, a little BAM to the mix. It helps if you have an elderly gentleman with an Appalachian background (like my grandfather) who does wonders with knives that can slice and dice onions very quickly...

And a close-up of the cutting job...

Add the onions and other vegies or random things you like to add to your shrooms and stir well...

I recommend that you add some butter or more olive oil to the mix to make sure it tastes good. Here it is being added...

Stir it like a witch's cauldren...

Cover the concoction, put it on a lower heat setting to allow you time to finish the rest of the meal before putting it on the table...

And behold the final product...

Sorry I don't have any action shots of people eating the shrooms, but I can assure you the shrooms were great...

Enjoy this "recipe" by serving warm.
