Grilled Marinated Mushrooms

Hi friends! Wow it has been a while since I have posted. Not that I haven't been cooking, but I have kind of been in a slump and have resorted to my old stand-bys. Plus, it is summer y'all. This girl has been out as much as she can baking in the sun! My mum and dad had these mushrooms and sent the recipe over to me. They just loved them!! I thought I would give them a try. Was out at my BFF's cottage today and we were grilling chicken thighs. Now, the recipe called for dried herbs, but since I love growing fresh herbs in my garden, I substituted with fresh! I think I actually liked it better (even though I haven't tried it with the dried) only because you can see the fresh herbs in the marinade. I hope you all enjoy!!

1 tbsp dried sage
1 tbsp dried tarragon
1 tsp black pepper
1 heaping tbsp crushed garlic
½ cup olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp salt
Large button mushrooms ( stems trimmed only do not remove stems )

Combine all ingredients except mushrooms in a bowl. Whisk to combine. Clean mushrooms and place in large ziplock bag add marinade and make sure all the mushrooms are coated. Let mushrooms marinate at least a couple of hours. 

Preheat grill and place mushrooms on skewers (make sure you soak the skewers for at least an hour prior to grilling so they don't burst into flames) and grill turning for at least 10 minutes. During the grilling time, continue to baste with the extra marinade, being careful with the flames (the oil will cause the fire to flame up).
