Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).

On a rimmed baking sheet, combine mushrooms, butter, thyme, rosemary and pepper to taste. Roast for about 30 minutes, stirring twice, or until mushrooms are browned and dry. Let cool.

In a bowl, mash softened cream cheese. Stir in roasted mushrooms, Cheddar and green onion. Pack into a 4-cup (1 L) baking dish. Bake right away or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

When ready to serve, preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Uncover and bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve with baguette and vegetables for dipping.


Cremini mushrooms have a deeper mushroom flavour than white mushrooms and work particularly well in this dip, though white mushrooms are plenty tasty, too. Use all of one variety of mushroom or a mixture of the two.
