Buttery Herb Sautéed Mushrooms

Mushrooms have not always been my favorite. If they are stuffed inside a recipe is best for my preference.

But I have grown to love them especially when coated in a buttery herb mixture!

I could have eaten this entire pan by myself!

They are always so simple to make and add SO much flavor to our dish.

These are great as a side dish, on top of meat or simply eaten by themselves.

They are ready in just 10-15 minuets!

No matter how simple or complicated the recipe, they never fail to please.

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

I know that you are going to love these mushrooms just as much as we did, even if you aren’t a mushroom fan!

What are the benefits to eating mushrooms

Mushrooms are packed with nutritional value.

They are low in calories, are great sources of fiber and protein.

They also provide many important nutrients that are good for your overall health.

What you need to make sautéed mushrooms

You begin with sautéing the mushrooms in a buttery sauce with seasoning over top the mushrooms.

Once your mushrooms become tender this dish is ready minutes!

The mixture of butter and seasonings just leave these mushrooms simple and delicious with every bite.

I like to serve these mushrooms on top of a big and juicy steak.

They also taste amazing on top of chicken or even served on the side.

These mushrooms are a great compliment to any dish that you are making.

They will add incredible flavor! This is a recipe for perfection!

  • Butter: sautéing the mushrooms in butter makes them tender and juicy.
  • Mushrooms: I like the button mushrooms but most mushrooms will work. You will want to clean and slice in half.
  • Fresh thyme: a powerful seasoning that adds to the flavor.
  • Parsley: brightens the dish and adds a balanced savory flavor.
  • Rosemary: a sharp, piney aroma that blends well with other seasonings.
  • Garlic: bring on the garlic! Sweet, sour and salty blend that adds to these mushrooms.
  • Salt and pepper: added seasoning

How to make sautéed mushrooms

Within minutes you will have one easy meal. It is so easy to make!

You can either use whole mushrooms or sliced mushrooms.

The seasonings are fresh and adds an AMAZING flavor to these mushrooms.

  • Warm your skillet: In a medium sized skillet over medium high heat add the butter.
  • Mix ingredients: Add the mushrooms, thyme, parsley, rosemary, garlic and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Sautéing: Saute for 3-4 minutes or until they become tender.
  • Serve: Garnish with additional chopped parsley if desired.

How to wash mushrooms

It is important to wash your mushrooms properly.

Because they grow low to the ground, they may have been covered with dirt when you purchase them from your local grocery store.

Quickly wash mushrooms under warm water and using your fingers cleaning the tops of the mushrooms until they are a creamy white color.

Mushrooms are porous, so you do not want to soak them too long in water.

If you need to use a damp paper towel to rub the top and sides of the mushrooms to clean, that works well too.

It is best to wait to wash your mushrooms until you are ready to sautéed them. They tend to turn slimy if done too soon.

How to cut your mushrooms

I cut about half of my mushrooms and left the other half whole.

If you prefer them all whole or halved that will work great too.

The texture balance is fun and adds more thickness as a side dish.

Simply cut the mushrooms in half or slice them thick or thin depending on your preference.

I love how versatile these mushrooms are. You can either have them as a side dish or on top of your favorite burger or steak.

These are even great enjoyed by themselves.

Whatever you do, make them! You will not regret it!

This makes an excellent topping or a great side dish. Which do you prefer?!

  • Potatoes: Mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes or fries.
  • Meat: Steak, chicken, pork and burgers or seafood.
  • Vegetables: asparagus, leeks, lemon, shallots, onions, fennel, peas, tomatoes.
  • Eggs: omelet, egg muffins, topped over eggs.

  1. Great shrooms, but DAMN the site hosting this page is misery to use.
    Super slow, choppy, just bad. And no, it’s not the local user/browser/hardware.

  2. If I had to pick one thing to eat for the rest of my life I’d choose this, I’ve made this countless times and they are soooooo good!!!!
