Slow Cooker Ranch Mushrooms

So, tell me… what do you all think about mushrooms? Yay or nay? For me, it’s always a YAY! I love love love mushrooms, sauteed, raw, as a garnish, in a filling, roasted, stuffed… I could go on all day lol. If you don’t like mushrooms, we can still be friends, I just won’t understand that part of you 😉

Three ingredients is all you need to make the most delicious and flavorful mushrooms! Just toss them in a slow cooker and let it do the work for you!

Do you have 5 minutes and 3 ingredients?  I bet so… and if you do… you could be having these mushrooms.  Tonight!

That’s right you guys… 3 ingredients.  THREE!  Sorry I get super excited about simple meals, or in this case, side dishes.  I don’t know about you guys, but when I’m planning meals for our family, I tend to get the main course covered, but will occasionally forget the sides.  Whoops!

MY LATEST RECIPES

That’s where side dishes like this are perfect… minimal effort, and HUGE flavor payout!

Here’s the breakdown:

  1. Whole button mushrooms
  2. Butter
  3. Ranch dressing packet

And those ingredients will yield a slow cooker full of this

Buttery, ranch-y (yeah, I just made that word up lol), and completely delicious!

Now I can’t guarantee that these are kid-friendly… as my kids have an aversion to mushrooms (how is that even possible, with parents who are mushroom obsessed?!).  But what I can promise you, is that you won’t even want to share these mushrooms.

Start by adding your cleaned whole button mushrooms to your slow cooker.

Melt your butter and whisk in your dry ranch dressing packet.  Pour over the mushrooms and give them a stir to coat.

Okay, so two things here… first, it may look like there’s not enough melted butter to coat all the mushrooms.  Just pop the lid on anyway and cook on low for 3-4 hours.  The mushrooms will give off moisture when they cook and there will be plenty of liquid, I promise 🙂  Secondly, if you don’t like to use pre-made ranch packets, there are tons of great recipes online for “make your own” packets, so feel free to use that instead 🙂

Also, if you’d rather substitute some of the butter for a healthier alternative, like extra virgin olive oil, I think that would work just fine.

I love to add some chopped fresh herbs on top of slow cooked dishes… it just brightens them up 🙂  I used minced parsley here, I actually use it a lot lol.

We’ve also made this dish with a packet of zesty Italian dressing and it was equally delicious!  They go great alongside some stuffed Italian flank steak, heroin chicken tenders, or a cheesesteak with a horseradish aioli 🙂

  1. I’m always on the lookout for different side-dish options and this one is PERFECT, and you can make it right in the slow cooker so you don’t even have to think about it! I LOVE it, I can’t wait to try these… they’re so simple! WAHOOO!!!

    • Thank you so much Steph!! Side dishes always seem to be my downfall… we go through the same routine of them, so once we found these… we were definitely happy! Simple and EASY, right up my alley 😀

  2. On name alone I had to check this one out! Looks and sounds great, I’ll try it soon.

  3. These look absolutely fabulous! I wish more of my family liked mushrooms, but my youngest son and I do, so I’ll have to make these as a special treat for us! Pinning!

  4. I adore mushrooms and love the idea of just noshing on a bowl full! Yum!

  5. I think ranch-y should definitely be added to the dictionary. Thanks for sharing at ‘Tell em Tuesday’!

  9. I love this recipe Amanda. Love mushrooms, love ranch and love my slow cooker. I have pinned this on my personal board too. Thank you very much for joining in the celebration of #purebloglove, we enjoy having you each week. I hope to see you on Thursday at 8PM, EST through Sunday night. ~Cydnee

  10. Yummy side dish and I love that it’s so easy. IT’s great when a slow cooker recipe doesn’t actually need a lot of preparation in advance.

  11. We love mushrooms and I’ve made them about every way I can imagine except like this!! But this is my favorite way to fix whole mushrooms. I even went & bought a smaller crockpot just for these!! Because everyone loves them so much they’ve even asked me to add them to my Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners!! Now this is a big deal at my house because 34 years ago after our first holidays together…my husband asked me to never change a thing I had made!! In the all these years I’ve only added 2 things & this is one of them. These are also on a regular rotation at my house no matter what I’m fixing. I’m making a chicken casserole tomorrow and wanted a couple of different sides but not the regular same old sides. So I’m fixing these & roasted onions with parmesan cheese sauce. Thanks for the great recipes!!

    • Hi Patty 🙂 Oh man, this comment just made my night!! I’m SO happy to hear that everyone loved these mushrooms!! Such a high compliment that they’ve been requested to be added to such important holiday dinners 🙂 Thanks for such a wonderful comment!

  12. I made these today for lunch and served with mashed potatoes and green beans.. They were so good. I didn’t have ranch dressing and rsubstituted Italian d

  13. I made these for the second time today. Doubled the recipe this time. They are so so good. If you love mushrooms go ahead and double the recipe. Thank you for sharing.

  14. I have made a variation of these (adding about 1/3 cup Parmesan for each # mushrooms) and am now required to bring them to every event. Usually make 4-5 #s and they are the 1st thing to be gone. Best part my Mr. doesn’t mind making them!

  15. oooo what a yummy & super simple recipe!! Iove this!

  18. Have you ever used Shiitake and/or oyster mushrooms for this recipe? I grow those mushrooms, and may have to try this. Thank you.

  19. My son-in-law brought these to a potluck. Everyone loved them ! The sauce would be excellent on rice. Love good recipes with few ingredients.
