A BUTTERY GARLIC MUSHROOMS RECIPE

Garlic mushrooms cooked in a creamy butter sauce are absolutely spectacular. Everyone needs a go-to mushroom recipe and this one should definitely be yours. Served as a side dish or a starter, be prepared for these amazing mushrooms to be gone in seconds! 

Do you love mushrooms, or hate them?! I love mushrooms a little too much. I could eat them day after day, starting with several of these Crab Stuffed Mushrooms. And then, making a move on today’s stunning subject; Creamy Garlic Mushrooms with Bacon. 🥓 

I’m drawn to mushrooms because, I enjoy the meaty texture, and I truly appreciate their ability to absorb all kinds of flavors. 

Mushrooms with Bacon

HOW TO MAKE CREAMY GARLIC MUSHROOMS

  • We will start with chopping up some bacon, washing our mushrooms, and mincing garlic.
  • Heat up your skillet and add in the bacon; cook until crispy and remove from skillet.
  • Add butter to the skillet and a drizzle of olive oil; stir in the garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Do not burn the garlic.
  • Add the mushrooms to the skillet, coating them all around with butter. 
  • Season with salt, pepper, chili powder, paprika, and garlic powder. Continue to cook until tender and nicely browned. To get the most flavor out of the mushrooms, it’s important to let them brown well. This should take about 5 to 7 minutes.

Garlic Mushrooms with Bacon

  • Slowly stir in some chicken broth and heavy cream. 
  • Cook for a few minutes, or until sauce starts to thicken. 
  • Add bacon back into the pan, garnish with chopped fresh parsley, and serve. 

WHAT ARE THE BEST MUSHROOMS TO COOK WITH?

  • Cremini, Portobello, Shittake, Porcino are all great, and for this recipe I suggest to choose small button mushrooms. Look for Baby Portobello Mushrooms, or just plain White Button Mushrooms.

WHAT GOES WELL WITH MUSHROOMS?

If you ask me, it’s this OVEN GRILLED STEAK! I love steak and mushrooms together; see Sirloin Steaks with Mushroom Sauce.

Creamy Garlic Mushrooms can also be served with chicken, pork, pasta, or just eat them straight out of the pan. Nothing more will be needed. Can’t wait for you to agree!

    Can you make these ahead of time or will they become mushy? Looking to bring this and not serve for at least 2 hours? Any recommendations?

    1. Hi! I think you’ll be okay because these should hold up a few hours before starting to get mushy. I’d also suggest to undercook them a little bit since they will continue to cook as they cool down, and since you’re not serving them right away, they will cook perfectly while cooling.

    This is amazing! Question. There are two serving sizes listed. Is the servicing size a cup? Because this made a little over two cups. Or is the serving size diving this 6 ways?

    I have recently started on my keto lifestyle change and unfortunately I am not a huge fan of mushrooms.

    I now LOVE mushrooms. This recipe is AMAZING and TASTY.

    Honestly love this sauce so much.

  4. Melissa

    Ummmmmmm, these are amazing! I’ve started Keto and these hit the spot! They taste just like Olive Garden’s, ravioli di portobello. Just delicious. Thank you!

    How do you brown the mushrooms for 5 to 7 minutes on medium high heat without burning the garlic that is already in the skillet?
