Slow Cooker Garlic Herb Mushrooms

Slow Cooker Garlic Herb Mushrooms
Today I have a quick and easy slow cooker garlic herb mushroom side dish recipe for you! I like this recipe not only because it's so quick and easy but it's also made in the slow cooker which frees up some oven and stove top space which is really nice for large meals like Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. This mushroom side is as easy to make as throwing the mushrooms into the slow cooker (whole) along with garlic, herbs and butter! Yum! The dish is rounded out with some broth to cook the mushrooms in and to make a sauce with the addition of cream and parmesan cheese at the end! Are these slow cooker garlic herb mushrooms the perfect Thanksgiving side dish? I'm going to have to find out!

How would you add chicken to this?

This looks sooooooooooooo gooooooooooooood!!!!!

Rekea: Add some chicken and cook longer, until the chicken is done, before shredding the chicken and adding it to the mushrooms along with the sauce!

Do you think this would work if you bake in a casserole dish in a slow oven? If so, what temp do you recommend? Perhaps 250 for an hour?

Kevin Lynch said...

Beth: That would work well!
