This creamy mushrooms recipe is delicious as a side dish for steak and pork but also can be stirred into pasta or served atop burgers! I also wouldn't be surprised if you just eat them straight from the skillet!

Just like steakhouse mushrooms, this creamy mushrooms recipe has full flavor from garlic, herbs, parmesan cheese and a splash of heavy cream!
Simple Steps To Make Creamy Mushrooms
- Sautee mushrooms
- Add garlic
- Stir in heavy cream
- Finish with parmesan cheese
Start by adding mushrooms to pan with butter. Leave the mushrooms alone for a few minutes so they can develop some color.
And all seasonings.
Stir in heavy cream.
After the cream has thickened, remove from heat and stir in parmesan cheese.
A lot of recipes for mushrooms include red wine. I have omitted it in this recipe. While I do enjoy the flavor profile of reduced red wine with mushrooms, this dish is rich and flavorful enough that I'm comfortable skipping the extra step.
How To Serve Creamy Mushrooms
- On top or on the side of steak/pork/chicken
- Stirred into pasta
- On top of burgers
- Straight out of the pan
One of my favorite uses is piled high on top of a turkey burger - YUM!
