Melt-in-your mouth garlic mushrooms can be enjoyed at breakfast (think Sheet Pan Full Breakfast With Garlic Butter Mushrooms), as a side to Roast Chicken, Pork Roast with Crackle or with a juicy Steakhouse Steak. They are so versatile, you can even stuff mushrooms inside chicken breasts! Or keep it simple and serve them on your toasts (or garlic bread).
Normally, garlic mushrooms are cooked in butter and garlic, hence the name of the recipe. However, you will love the extra ingredients we add even more! Because an extra kick of flavour never hurt anyone!
HOW TO MAKE GARLIC MUSHROOMS
For my recipe, you only need a handful of ingredients:
- Unsalted butter — use unsalted to control the amount of salt added.
- Olive oil — just a little oil added to the butter gets them nice and crispy on the outer edges and prevents the butter from burning.
- Garlic — please use fresh where you can.
- Herbs — we love parsley and thyme, but you can use oregano, rosemary, basil, etc.
- Salt and pepper.
Onion — green, red, yellow or white! This is an optional ingredient BUT I find it enhances the garlic flavour.
Dry white wine — also optional. If you’ve never added wine to your garlic mushrooms, you won’t regret trying it.
That’s it! The two additional (and optional) ingredients of white wine and onion is what makes this recipes stand out from regular garlic mushrooms — in a good and tasty way!
HOW TO CLEAN MUSHROOMS
Wipe each mushroom over with a damp paper towel for soft pastry brush if needed to remove loose dirt and debris. Work one at a time.
Lightly rinse under cold water and thoroughly pat dry with paper towel.
Avoid soaking mushrooms as they will absorb water like a sponge and won’t brown during cooking.
WHAT TO SERVE WITH GARLIC MUSHROOMS
Size: Find mushrooms that are about the same size to ensure even cooking.
Type: We use button mushrooms as pictured here, or you can use Cremini (Swiss brown) or wild mushrooms. Choose a mushroom type you are familiar with!
Rinse mushrooms before slicing and when you are ready to cook to prevent them from getting slimy.
