Garlic Herb Mushrooms

Garlic Herb Mushrooms in a pan

These easy Garlic Herb Mushrooms are so flavorful and come together in just minutes! I love these as a side dish, but they’re also fantastic as a topping for steak, pasta or chicken, or even as a snack. Once I start eating these I never want to stop! The sautéed mushrooms are soft, but the edges get golden and crispy in the butter. The salt, pepper, garlic and herbs may be simple, but they give these mushrooms an incredible flavor. You can whip up these Garlic Herb Mushrooms in less than 10 minutes, so they’re perfect as a quick weeknight side dish or to top some meat off the grill. You can also easily halve the recipe to make a smaller quantity if you’re only serving one or two. Better still, a serving of these savory, buttery Garlic Herb Mushrooms is just 52 calories or 1 WW Point.

  1. So funny! I madenthesenthe other night for just me since nobody else in my family eats mushrooms. I ate all of them before the rest of dinner was ready!

  2. This is my favorite all time go to side!!  I use spray butter and calc as zero!  JUST as good!

  3. This sounds great. My favorite is light butter and sprinkle Wishbone Italian dressing powder… amount determined by how much mushrooms as well as to personal  taste. Made like this. So easy and delish.
