Garlic Mushroom Butter

As a mushroom growing enthusiast, I have always been fascinated by the versatile nature of mushrooms. One of my favorite ways to enjoy mushrooms is by incorporating them into a delicious garlic mushroom butter. This savory and aromatic spread adds a rich and flavorful element to a variety of dishes, making it a staple in my kitchen.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup finely chopped mushrooms (such as cremini or button mushrooms)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a skillet, melt a tablespoon of butter over medium heat.
  2. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  3. Next, add the chopped mushrooms and cook until they are soft and any liquid has evaporated.
  4. Remove the mushroom and garlic mixture from the heat and let it cool to room temperature.
  5. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, mushroom mixture, and freshly chopped parsley.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste and mix well until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  7. Transfer the garlic mushroom butter onto a sheet of plastic wrap, shape it into a log, and refrigerate until firm.


This garlic mushroom butter can be used in a variety of ways. It is fantastic when spread on a freshly baked baguette or used as a topping for grilled steak, chicken, or seafood. I also love melting a slice of this butter on top of a hot-off-the-grill portobello mushroom for an extra burst of flavor. The options are endless!
