Mushroom Thing
Vaguely adapted from Alton Brown

1 Tbsp butter or oil
1/2 lb. mushrooms, sliced (crimini or button)
2 Tbsp minced green onion or shallot
Shot of sherry
Salt and pepper
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 cup half and half
2 Tbsp bread crumbs
2 Tbsp parmesan cheese

Melt the butter in a large heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and some salt and cook until browned and bereft of most moisture. Add the minced green onion or shallot and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 to 2 minutes. Deglaze the pan with the sherry. Turn the heat off and add the thyme and freshly ground black pepper. Stir in the half and half, bread crumbs, and parmesan cheese. Once the cheese melts and some of the half and half has evaporated, place in a bowl and eat. Or toss it with some sort of pasta. Or use it in stuffed mushrooms.
