Garlic Butter Mushrooms

A quick delicious mushroom recipe

  • Author: Grant Bushby
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Category: side
  • Method: Frying
  • Cuisine: French


  • 300g baby button mushrooms
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp Parmesan cheese, finely grated (optional)
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper


  1. Wipe the top of the mushrooms with a damp kitchen towel. (Do not run the mushrooms under water or soak them as this will cause too much saturation in the pan, preventing the mushroom edges from crisping. 
  2. Over a medium heat, heat the butter in a pan along with the oil until the butter melts and combines with the oil. 
  3. Once melted, add the mushrooms and leave for 4 – 5 minutes until golden and have developed crispy edges.
  4. Add the garlic and herbs and cook for a further minute until fragrant. Season with salt and pepper. For an extra kick, sprinkle parmesan cheese over the mushrooms before serving
