A Reader’s Review

I make a quadruple batch of these for every party I go to and they’re ALWAYS a hit with people begging for the recipe! Delicious!


Creamy Garlic Parmesan Mushrooms

Believe it or not, mushrooms were once on my do not make list. They aren’t my favorite, and I never knew how to cook them up and make them delicious. Until I found out that mushrooms taste incredible if sautéed in a creamy sauce. So that’s where this recipe came in! These mushrooms have made me a little obsessed. You can use them on the side or cook this up as a meal for lunch. Trust me; you will be so happy that you did!

It begins with sautéing them in butter and fresh minced garlic until tender. But then bring on the heavy cream and turn this dish into something fantastic! The heavy cream, parmesan, garlic, and cream cheese… Well, they are the best mushrooms that you will ever eat! Not only are they delicious, but they go with just about everything. Cook them up with some pork chops, some simple and easy rolls, and a quick salad and you will have a meal for the books!

  • Parmesan Cheese: If you can use freshly grated parmesan intead of pre-packaged, it will melt better into the sauce.
  • Cream Cheese: Soften your cream cheese to room temperature before cooking so that it mixes well with the other ingredients.

    Made this for myself & love it! Intend to make for a family get-together dinner but one member of the family can’t eat mushrooms. If I just want to make the sauce and serve a vegetable on the side, do I skip the olive oil entirely, or how should I adjust it?

    (I should probably add some Accent/MSG to make up for the lost umami too, right…?)

  2. 5 stars
    I just made this and doubled the sauce and added chicken served over pasta,it was fabulous!!! Next time I’ll use shrimp!!!

  3. Can these mushrooms be cooked in a crockpot? I would sauté them first with the garlic, butter and olive
    Oil than put in crockpot with the rest of ingredients. I hope so?

    1. I haven’t tried cooking them in a crock pot. They may end up mushy if you cook them for too long. You could try it and then switch the crockpot to warm when they are done!

  4. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious! I serve this over a pasta like fettuccini. I’ve even quadrupled the recipe. No one can get enough of it! Thank you for sharing!
