Michael's Best Button Mushrooms

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Marie

I saw this on Foodtv yesterday and I can't wait to try it. Mushrooms are glazed with a garlic white wine lemon sauce with a little thyme added. Small white button mushrooms were used and left whole for a beautiful presentation. Great for a dinner party. Recipe courtesy of Michael Chiarello.

Great mushrooms. Follow the cooking times exactly as they facilitate the proper browning (carmelization) of the mushrooms ensuring really succulent results. I loved the taste of this and the wine glazed the mushrooms beautifully at the end. Yummy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over high heat and add the mushrooms.
  2. Do not move the mushrooms until they have carmelized on the bottom.
  3. When bottoms are carmelized, toss them and continue to cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add butter; cook and toss for 5 minutes until browned.
  5. Season with salt and add the garlic.
  6. Saute another 2 minutes and add the thyme and lemon juice.
  7. Cook to evaporate the liquid.
  8. Add wine and reduce until mushrooms are glazed with the sauce.
  9. Toss in parsley and serve immediately.
