Roasted Mushrooms

There were mushrooms in my fridge and a slow cooker on my counter and so we get this easy side or main dish.



  • 1 package whole mushrooms (I used baby bella but they are really the same as button mushrooms and the flavor is the same)
  • Butter
  • Thyme
  • Garlic (crushed, diced, or powder if that’s all you have)
  • Olive Oil


  1. Heat the slow cooker on high for about 5 min then add a large pat of butter and some olive oil to cover the base. Add in the herbs and garlic.
  2. Clean off the mushrooms and remove the stems and toss with the oil. Liberally sprinkle the salt and pepper over the mushrooms and add ¼ of a cup of water.
  3. Slow cooker recipes are pretty standard in cooking: 6 on low, 3 on high.

I added the mushrooms to some freshly cooked pasta for a pretty filling meal but they also make a great side for a piece of meat or as topping on a burger.
