Remember that one time when I made the most insanely delicious buttery herb and garlic roasted mushrooms in a skillet and then died and went to heaven?

Oh hey that’s today.

Actually I made them two days ago, but I’m still dreaming about them today. This was one time that I was actually okay with making something I knew my husband would not go for – he loathes mushrooms – because I seriously couldn’t stop popping these beauties in my mouth. I don’t think there would’ve been enough to share if he would have wanted any. I mean you could easily serve 3-4 people a side dish or appetizer of these garlic butter mushrooms but if you’re like me and swoon at the combination of garlic and butter…. don’t plan on sharing. Just don’t.

Or do, but make sure to double the recipe at the very least because the aroma alone will send you into a food-coma.

Let’s talk herbs for just a second though. You’ll notice in the recipe that I said you can use fresh or dried herbs here. Either one will work. If you’re gonna use fresh (definitely my first choice) then any combination of parsley, thyme, rosemary, or just about any other favorite herb would do fine here. I used those three but go with your gut and whatever makes your tongue happy.

If you don’t have fresh herbs on hand but have some dried herbs then you’re good to go. Just use half as much if you’re using dried. And the really easy shortcut would be to use a teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Easy peasy and packs a lot of yummy flavors.

Ohhhhh and it comes together in 15 minutes, you noticed that right? I’m so excited about it that I put it in the title just so you would know that this is the fastest and most tasty mushroom side dish you’ll ever find. If it was socially acceptable I’d probably just make the garlic butter sauce and lick the pan clean.

But you can hardly call that a side dish you know? And side dishes I’ve been known to slack on because I focus on making the main entree and then realize 15 minutes before we are eating that we have nothing to go with our baked balsamic chicken. But that’s okay, because 15 minutes is all you need to have garlic butter mushrooms with that balsamic chicken.

I have a mushroom hating husband too. On the rare occasions we go to a restaurant I search the menu for something with mushrooms. Or for lunch when he isn’t here I’ll cook up some sliced mushrooms, add heavy cream and pepper and serve them on buttered toast. After reading this post I’ll butter my toast with garlic butter 🙂

You know, I myself hate mushrooms, but I love this recipe! Someone showed it to me a couple of years ago and I was skeptical, but boy was I wrong! 😉 I use one other ingredient though, which is balsamic vinegar. Not much, just a splash or two. It adds just that little bit of sweetness when it reduces, and I think it’s heavenly.

    I love the idea of adding balsamic! I can never get enough!

As an amateur wife, how do you clean or prepare the mushrooms for this recipe? thanks 🙂

    Val, all mushrooms take just a swipe with a damp paper towel. Because MUSHROOMS are like sponges and absorb liquids-any more then damp will “ruin” the mushroom for the recipes.

Does the color or type of mushroom matter for this? In addition to this recipe i plan to make the steak & mushroom fOil pack; howEver, i have the whole white mUshrooms. Also, i nOticed you have another post that is slightly different – it does not call for white whOle mushrooms, it jUst says 1lb mushrooms.

Should i get the baby pOrtabellas?

    I usually use white cremini mushrooms for this recipe, though brown will work too!

I will be cooking your Garlic butter Mushrooms today.. I hope i do good…jeje..
