In the land of food, there are some ingredients that just make really good friends. Peanut butter and jelly, bacon and eggs, milk and cookies… Well, we’d certainly count garlic and butter among those buddies, and if you add in some fresh chopped herbs, before you know it you’ve got the three musketeers! These mushrooms cook slowly in that delightful trio for a tender and savory side dish that we can’t get enough of.
These Slow Cooker Mushrooms are as simple as can be to put together. All you do is arrange a nice little butter and wine bath for some tiny mushrooms and let them simmer away in the crockpot with some flavorful herbs and garlic. The mushrooms absorb all of that goodness, and some half and half stirred in at the end lends some heavenly creaminess. We find that the flavor of fresh herbs holds up better in the slow cooker than dried, but if dried is all you have on hand, this dish will still come out tasting great.
While regular white button mushrooms would work fine in this dish, crimini mushrooms are a little bit more mature and so have a deeper earthy flavor. Because they’re firmer, they hold up in liquid better and retain their unique and delicate texture. We absolutely love the savory combination here of butter, wine, cream, garlic, and herbs and these little mushrooms are the perfect pal to showcase it.
