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!
Slow Cooker Garlic Herb Mushrooms
Super easy and tasty garlic and herb mushrooms made in the slow cooker!
- 1 1/2 pounds mushrooms
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme (or 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped)

I love it when the slow cooker can do the work for me! Delish!
is it a bad thing that i want to forgo all the other dishes and just double this recipe? 😀
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?
Beth: That would work well!
Can you use heavy cream instead of half and half?
Ann Patane Lane says
Do you continue cooking once the half and half, Parmesan and parsley are added? Or are they added prior to serving?
Ann Patane Lane: They are added at the end of the cooking just before serving. Enjoy!
I would like to cut the mushrooms in half, thanks for sharing your tasty recipe
How would you serve these? And with what?
You can serve these with pretty much any main. I like them with steak or roast beef and the are nice with a roast turkey dinner!
