Previously, our popular garlic mushrooms with onions and white wine inspired us to share this easy recipe. The best part about this recipe is that you can make it your own. Use any type of spice or flavoring that you like and adjust the seasonings to your personal taste. We love adding extra garlic and sometimes some spinach in it too. Extra squeeze of lemon juice adds a bright flavor that takes these mushrooms over the top.

Tips on how to make skillet mushrooms

The key factor is making sure to cook out all the moisture in the mushrooms. Don’t cook them to where they’re all dried out, but if you cook out enough of the moisture, the mushrooms won’t be soggy. You want the mushrooms to have a good sear on medium/high heat or high enough so that the mushrooms don’t burn. Lastly, if you’re cutting mushrooms make sure to have then all about the same size so they can all cook evenly.

Feel free to use whatever fresh mushroom you prefer. Just clean them and cut or tear them into bite-sized pieces (mushrooms like oyster mushrooms are sometimes easier to just tear into your desired size). For cleaning the mushrooms, we prefer to use a dry pastry brush or slightly dampened cloth to brush off any dirt which may be on the mushrooms.
