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.  
  • Italian Seasoning: You can use store bought Italian seasoning or, go ahead and try making this Homemade Italian Seasoning. It’s super easy and great to have on hand!
  • Salt and Pepper: These are used to add in some flavor and enhance all of the other ingredients.

  1. I’ve been using this recipe to bring on Thanksgiving and Christmas for the past few years and my family raves over it! Once cooked, I throw it in a crockpot on warm to keep it hot. It’s perfect over turkey and mashed potatoes. So yummy!

  2. 5 stars
    Loved this dish ..only thing I added was about a cup of white wine and let it reduce and a pinch of nutmeg to the sauce:)It was amazing:)

    1. 5 stars
      Great idea! I think I will try adding wine next time. Had it with rigatoni … delicious! Going to see if the sauce can hold up to spaghetti squash next time!

    What a hit at Easter dinner. Guests couldn’t stop talking about how delicious the mushrooms and sauce were. Thanks for a great recipe.

  4. I love this recipe on linguine! My husband asks for it every once in a while! It’s a must try with real butter.

  5. I had to substitute heavy cream with sour cream, cream cheese and milk and for the parsley with cilantro. It was sooo great! Best mushroom recipe I’ve ever made:)

  6. 5 stars
    My family ADORES these mushrooms! I have to double the recipe to satisfy my husband, 3 year old and 1 year old. I’ve started tripling the sauce and adding in a box of noodles (after they’re cooked) and serving it all together. We eat it once a week now and my daughter asks for it more than that! So easy and fast and so, so good!

  7. 5 stars
    WOW.. AMAZING!! I followed this recipe and we served this over Prime Rib ❤️ I could have cooked the mushrooms a few min longer, but definitely better than I expected ? WILL DEFINITELY MAKE THIS AGAIN!

  8. These are fabulous! So creamy and filled with flavor. I only used half the italian spice but left everything else the same. So yummy!

  9. 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!

  10. OMG this is awesome! Added diced chicken breast only half the cream cheese and everyone loved it, including me!

    Thanks!

  11. Tried this tonight for the first time. Gonna make a few tweaks for next time, I think I may have over salted… but it was awesome.
