I love the film Julie & Julia and have watched it many times. It was only after watching this movie that I had first heard of Julia Childs and her writing a book about French cookery.

But the scene that I remember the most is when Julie is talking about cooking with butter. She mentions how so many of our favourite dishes, are our favourite because of BUTTER.

And it so true.

Those amazing comfort foods that taste so much better because of butter!

Air Fryer Garlic Mushrooms is a key example of that. If you didn’t have the butter, then would we really like it? Or would it just be another boring vegetable that we force ourselves to eat?

I did originally suggest to Dominic that we make our air fryer garlic mushrooms without butter and just add the usual extra virgin olive oil, that we can’t cook without and I was shouted at that you CAN NOT MAKE GARLIC MUSHROOMS WITHOUT BUTTER.

Said the guy that used to work in the restaurants in England cooking them!

Well I better listen to the expert!

Therefore, the recipe you’re about to read for air fryer garlic mushrooms not only has butter but it also has extra virgin olive oil!

Not only are my air fryer garlic mushrooms the most delicious garlic mushrooms you’ve ever tried, but they are Keto and Paleo friendly too.

Just by using quality butter from US Wellness Meats we can make the most amazing garlic mushrooms.

Plus, I find it so difficult on Keto to find vegetables that I truly like that are low enough in carbs, but with mushrooms you have a good plan B.

Then of course with Keto its about the fat, so this dish feels like it ticks every Keto box.

You need an air fryer baking dish to make delicious garlic butter mushrooms in the air fryer. This is because with either the grill pan or the air fryer basket, the butter will disappear through the holes and make a HUGE mess.

The baking dish, however, will hold everything together nicely just like a tray would in the oven.

We don’t just use our baking pan for garlic mushrooms but for all kinds of dishes including banana bread, meat in a sauce and frittatas.
