Creamy Garlic Mushrooms

Sharing is caring!

This creamy garlic mushrooms recipe comes together in just 20 minutes and is the perfect popular recipe for all the mushroom lovers out there. This is a must-make side dish to celebrate National Mushroom Month.

I am a massive lover of all things mushroom. One of my favorite recipes that I have made to date is these pan-roasted lion mane mushrooms. But these creamy garlic mushrooms are a close second. The beautiful mushrooms are served in a Creamy Parmesan sauce.

The baby Bella mushrooms are pan-roasted in butter and olive oil. Then we add some heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, and cream cheese making a delicious creamy sauce nest in which the mushrooms are nestled. If you are feeling frisky, you can add a splash of white wine to the mushrooms as well.

Once the mushrooms are cooked, that delicious cream sauce would be great to serve with a side of crusty bread to soak it all up.

This easy recipe uses simple ingredients. Of course, if Baby Bella is not your favorite mushroom, you could use Cremini mushrooms or even white button mushrooms which are the big white mushrooms. I like the meaty texture of the Bella mushroom. If you are not sure which ones to choose, the Bellas are the brown mushrooms.

Of course, the kind of mushrooms you use is not really important.

Step 1: Melt the butter and extra virgin olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Clean mushrooms off with a damp paper towel and cold water. Make sure to use the whole mushroom.

Step 2: Add the whole mushrooms and cook until golden brown on all sides, around 5 – 7 minutes. 

Step 3: Add the following ingredients to the pan — fresh garlic, heavy cream, cream cheese, and freshly grated parmesan to the pan. Cook until the creamy garlic mushroom sauce is thick and creamy and coats the mushrooms. 

Step 4: Sprinkle fresh parsley and black pepper over the top of the mushrooms and serve with your favorite protein like pork chops or a delicious ribeye steak. If you want to give it a little kick, you could also sprinkle on some bacon bits and red pepper flakes.

This easy side dish is very low carb and could even be a main dish if you want it to be! You could also add cooked pasta and make it a creamy mushroom pasta for an additional main course.

How to Store These Creamy Mushrooms

To store the mushrooms after cooking them, place them in an airtight container and place them in the refrigerator.

What size package of mushrooms? I'm assuming 16 oz if it serves 6 people? Thank you!

Yes. The 16 ounce pack is what I used. But if you want a smaller pack, you can totally use the smaller pack.
