What are garlic butter roasted mushrooms?
Garlic butter mushrooms are a meaty, intensely flavorful dish prepared by drizzling fresh mushrooms with a garlic and herb infused butter and then baking them in the oven until fragrant and tender.
Mushrooms can be served as an appetizer, side dish, topping for steaks, toast or potatoes and also as a garnish for salads and pizza!
How to pick fresh mushrooms at the store?
Shopping for mushrooms at the grocery store is easy once you know exactly what to look for! Follow these simple tips for purchasing the best mushrooms:
- Look for mushrooms that are firm with a smooth appearance and no brown spots. Avoid pressing on the mushrooms too hard when checking for firmness or you will bruise them.
- The mushrooms surface should be dry and not damp, nor should they be shriveled and dried out.
- Fresh mushrooms should appear plump and fresh.
- Check the underside of the mushroom cap. If you are looking for a delicate flavor, choose mushrooms with a closed veil and hidden gills under the mushroom cap. For a richer flavor, select mushrooms with an open veil and exposed gills under the cap.
How to store fresh mushrooms?
Once you have selected the perfect mushrooms at the store, it is important they are properly stored.
Fresh mushrooms should be stored unwashed in their original packaging in the refrigerator.
If you purchased loose fresh mushrooms at the store, transfer them to a brown paper bag or storage container with the lid propped open for ventilation before storing them in the refrigerator.
Fresh mushrooms can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
Pro-tip #1: Fresh mushrooms need to breathe, so do not place mushrooms in an air-tight container!
Pro-tip #2: Do not clean mushrooms until you are ready to use them!
How to prepare mushrooms for cooking?
Once you are ready to cook mushrooms, avoid rinsing them under running water! Soaking fresh mushrooms with water can cause them to turn rubbery and slimy once cooked. To properly clean mushrooms, use a damp paper towel to gently brush off any dirt or debris.
Also, make sure you trim the bottom of the mushroom stems. (For shiitake mushrooms, remove the stems completely as they are tough in texture.)

- When selecting mushrooms, make sure you pick ones that are roughly the same size for even cooking!
- If you can’t find pearl onions or simple don’t like them, feel free to substitute 8 ounces of thickly sliced shallots instead! Alternatively, you can omit the onions completely and use an extra 8 ounces of mushrooms!
- When making the butter sauce in the microwave, be very careful! The wine and butter mixture will bubble up when it is heating, so make sure you are using a large measuring cup and microwave in short increments! I recommend at least a 2 cup liquid measuring cup. Alternatively, you can melt the butter with wine, garlic and seasonings on the stove-top!
