Garlic mushrooms make a delicious side dish and the key to making a great garlic mushrooms recipe is using fresh ingredients. Freshly minced garlic and fresh mushrooms star in this dish, along with fresh parsley. The sauce features cream cheese, heavy cream, and butter, along with parmesan cheese. All this dairy in there ensures a rich, unctuous result. Try it alongside grilled meat or chicken or even spoon some on top of your next hamburger.
Some garlic mushrooms recipes use a breading on the mushrooms, but this one doesn’t. Instead it’s cooked in a sauce. Also, for that reason, this recipe makes a better side dish than appetizer, unlike the breaded kind. Italian seasoning along with oregano, parsley and garlic ensure plenty of flavor in every mouthful, and the mushrooms will come out soft and tender. You can use any kind of mushrooms you want, even a mix, although standard white button or chestnut mushrooms will also work.
If you’re looking for a delicious side dish to make with mushrooms, this one is always well received. It’s rich and tasty, and just perfect with steak or fried chicken.
