Gorgonzola-Roasted Mushrooms and Onions

Gorgonzola-Roasted Mushrooms and Onions

I know I say this a lot, but this is seriously one of the best dishes I’ve had recently. It brings together 3 of my favorite things, so I knew it was going to be good, I just had no idea how good. If I had to one thing for the rest of my life, this dish would be among the top contenders. I probably could have let the cheese in the melt a bit more, but the mushrooms and onions were starting to get pretty well done. I used white button mushrooms and baby bellas because that is what I had on hand. I thought they worked perfectly. I served this as a side for a simple baked chicken recipe, but I think it would also be great with steak or as a great addition to a salad.
