During the show, Alton does a bit on "10 things I'm pretty sure I'm sure about food". One of the things on the list that night was to always wash your mushrooms. He said people will tell you not to wash mushrooms. Do you know what mushrooms are grown in? Poop. Yep. Poop. He said that black stuff on the mushrooms isn't dirt, it's poop. SO, always wash your mushrooms!!
On to the recipe. These mushrooms were fantastic! They smelled amazing while they were cooking. I loved how easy they were to assemble. There are only 4 ingredients. Mushrooms (washed), Ranch dressing mix, Italian dressing mix and butter. I just dumped everything in the slow cooker a few hours before dinner and we had a fantastic side dish with no work! We served these with some steaks and potato casserole. It was way better than any restaurant meal!
