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!

These creamy mushrooms make a wonderful topping and/or side dish to steak, chicken, pork and pasta but also they are delicious enough to stand alone as a dish.
- 1 T butter
- 8 oz sliced mushrooms (baby bella, white, cremini)
- 1 T minced garlic
- 1/2 tsp dry Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp salt, kosher
- 1/2 tsp black pepper (cracked fresh is best)
- 1/4 C heavy cream
- 2 T parmesan cheese (grated fresh is best)
- 1/2 tsp fresh thyme (optional but recommended)
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and allow to cook undisturbed for 2-3 minutes.
After 2-3 minutes, stir and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, another 3-4 minutes.
Add garlic, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning (& thyme if using), stir to evenly coat everything. Cook 1 minute.
Stir in heavy cream. Once the cream comes to a bubble, reduce heat and simmer 2-3 minutes, just until cream has thickened. Remove from heat and stir in parmesan cheese.
If desired, top with fresh chopped parsley before serving.
