Ingredients

  • 1 lb baby Bella mushrooms
  • 1/2 shallot
  • 2 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1/4 tsp red crushed pepper optional
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1/4 cup white wine optional
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Wipe each mushroom with a damp paper towel to remove any dirt. 
  • Melt 2 tbsp of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook for 20 seconds. 
  • Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes while stirring frequently. 
  • Stir in the white wine, fresh garlic, red crushed pepper, and fresh thyme. Let the wine reduce by half. It should take about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the heavy cream and fresh parmesan cheese. Cook for 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Check for seasoning, garnish with chives, and enjoy! 

Notes

  • Avoid washing the mushrooms with water, as they will absorb the water like a sponge and won't caramelize and crisp up while they cook.
  • Use fresh garlic and freshly grated parmesan cheese for best results!
  • Let the sauce thicken for at least 5 minutes! You want the sauce to be smooth and creamy.
  • Mushrooms can be on the bland side so season generously with salt and pepper.
