Creamy Garlic Parmesan Mushrooms

I am not the biggest mushroom fan in the world to be honest.  Two things that I am not hugely fond of are mushrooms and shrimp.  But my hubby loves both of them.  So I have to cook both of those things every once in a while just to keep him happy. 🙂 But I have grown to like and eat both things and I especially love mushrooms if they are sautéed in a creamy sauce.

These mushrooms have gotten me OBSESSED.

They are the best mushrooms that you will ever eat!


It begins with sautéing them in a butter and fresh minced garlic until it is tender.  But then bring on the heavy cream and turn this dish into something fantastic!  The heavy cream+parmesan+garlic+cream cheese….

This is a recipe for perfection!

These make a delicious side dish.  Or they are especially great on top of a steak or burger.  Or you can literally gobble these done by themselves.  Whatever you make them for you HAVE to make them!

You guys are going to quickly agree that these are the best mushrooms you have ever had!

    I would be Tempted to add about 1/4 cup of marsala to the pan and scrape up the good stuff before adding the cream and Parma! Just saying…I always fiddle with recipes!! Got to try this. Thank You.

  2. I just made this tonight. Awesome!!!!!! I definitely will this make again. Next time I think I will loosen it up a touch with some beef broth and serve it over noodles. Thank you. 🙂

  3. Bookmarked! I’m gonna make this and eat it with garlic bread because who needs anything else with it!

  4. I prepared this dish for Labor day, wow it was so darn tasty.
    I just tasted it before serving with some bbq ribs, perfect side dish.
    Thank you!

  5. This is going on my Thanksgiving menu this year. To stretch it further, maybe I’ll add some cooked pearl onions. Ooh Ooh… and maybe some fresh green peas for color 🙂

  6. I wonder if this would work as well with Alfredo sauce.

  7. These things are absolutely delicious!!!

  8. Delicious!! I doubled the sauce recipe and added steamed green beans at the end for my non-mushroom eater. He raved that it tasted like something from a restaurant. My mushroom eater devoured everything on his plate and asked for me. A whole pound of mushrooms + double the sauce is a safe bet.

    Made the recipe today. Grilled entree. This was so easy, and delicious. Would be fabulous over grilled chicken, burgers, steak. The only thing I added was Morton’s season-all instead of salt & pepper.

  10. Loved the taste, but far too rich for me. Would maybe cut the cream with milk or use half and half. I also added fresh spinach, diced sautéed onions and sun dried tomatoes and served over pasta. Really, really good. Thanks! It wouldn’t let me rate. Would give 4 stars as is simply because of how rich the dish was. Tons of potential here though.

  11. Mix pasta in with these and it is amazing!!

    I adore mushrooms BUT would someone be so kind as to inform me what you intend by Italian seasoning? I have lived in Italy for 46 years and we do not have a mix like that in our supermarkets! You obviously do. I would like to know what’s in your mix because I could add all the herbs we have here, BUT, not all go together well! Tried to write to Pinterest but got no answer! That’s another question: how can I get in touch with them directly? Thank you for any help you can give. Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy new Year!!!!!!

    • Hi, Linda! I share your annoyance at seeing any herb or spice mix referenced in a recipe because I never know what combination of flavors is being recommended, and every commercial mixture is different. My best advice: don’t worry about it! Use whatever combination of herbs/spices sounds good to you. For what it’s worth, here’s a suggestion from 2 tbsps. each dried oregano, thyme, marjoram and basil plus 1 tbsp. each of sage and rosemary. Personally, I think a mixture of tarragon, chervil and thyme would taste fantastic with this mushroom dish, plus a splash of brandy! It’s on my menu to go with steaks this evening and I’m sure it will taste wonderful with any fresh or dried herbs on hand, so thanks to the author for posting it. I hope this message reaches you and that you have a marvelous New Year.

    • I found this on my jar of italian seasonings so I really don’t know how much of each ingredient to make the magic combination.

      Marjoram, Thyme, Rosemary, Savory, Sage, Oregano, And Basil

    This is AMAZING!! I will be making this very frequently!!

  14. I just made this recipe and it is excellent! Knowing that your hubby likes both mushrooms and shrimp…It inspired me to also try this recipe with shrimp. I’ll make the sauce first on a slightly lower heat. Once thickened, I’ll add large raw shrimp until just cooked through, as shrimp gets very tough if overcooked, and Sha-Zamm “Creamy, Garlic, Parmesan Prawns”!!

  15. Is this able to be made and put in a crock pot to bring to a get together? Just wondering if the sauce would hold up nice!

  16. I made this the other night and used to as a topping for my hamburger patty. So delicious. Kiddo raved about how delicious it was then asked for seconds… then thirds. He asked that I would make it again tonight and I will 🙂

  17. Made this today and OMG .. I will definitely make it again .. soooo good

    • That is great to hear! Thanks so much for your comment! I loved making this recipe! Glad it made a great meal for you :)!

      The Recipe Critic,

  18. What a weirdo you are, sheesh.

  19. Marlene Drozd says:

    This is great with meatloaf, thought the heavy cream was too rich, however 2% milk made it too runny, went back to the cream!. Yes a bit rich, try not to eat it daily!!!! Yum
