8 oz mushrooms


  • 8 oz (1 pack) pre-sliced mushrooms (or whole if you prefer to slice them fresh)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Chicken Seasoning

Recipe Instructions

  1. In a large frying pan, add pre-sliced mushrooms and butter. If you prefer, wash mushrooms beforehand or slice whole mushrooms yourself. Using pre-sliced mushrooms just makes the preparation faster.
  2. Turn on the burner and set it to medium heat (on my stovetop, it is setting 5 out of 10). This may vary based on your stove. Ideally, you want enough heat where the mushrooms will cook in about 20 minutes, but not so much heat that the butter cooks away too quickly.
  3. Once your saucepan begins to heat, stir the mushrooms so that they get evenly coated with the melted butter.
  4. Continue stirring occasionally. As the mushrooms cook, their juices will combine with the butter and help keep them from sticking.
  5. About midway through the cooking process, add a generous sprinkling of seasoning and mix with the mushrooms (the amount will vary by preference). If you are not sure, season lightly while cooking, and remember that you can always add more to the finished product if it's not seasoned enough.
  6. Toward the end of the cooking process, the liquid will dry up. Add a second dose of seasoning at this point and mix it with the mushrooms. If the mushrooms are not yet cooked to your liking, continue stirring regularly so that they do not stick to the pan. I prefer to cook them until they are soft and brown, as pictured.
  7. When the mushrooms have been fully sautéed to your liking, immediately remove them from the pan and enjoy!
