Sautéed Mushrooms

Good Sautéed Mushrooms make a wonderful side dish for just about anything! My favorite ways to enjoy them is to serve them over a bun-less burger to elevate your burger or alongside a delicious filet mignon steak for a good, healthy, and Whole30 date night in! 

Sautéed MushroomsI love how simple these Sautéed Mushrooms are to whip up and how delicious they are! Before I started eating Paleo/Whole30, I always included some butter in my mushrooms; however, I always use Ghee now. My absolute, hands-down favorite ghee flavor of all time is this Himalayan Pink Salt Ghee by Fourth and Heart Ghee. The subtle saltiness makes it taste more like traditional butter to me, and I really love it in my scrambled eggs for breakfast, too! If there is a Ghee to buy, this is THE ONE. I am obsessed.

Sautéed MushroomsThe mushrooms couldn’t be more simple and they are certainly a staple in my household and I know you will enjoy them on top of or alongside all of the things! Enjoy!

  1. Hi Alex! What are your thoughts on the Ballarini pans being aluminum? Does the coating make them safe to use? Thank you!!

    1. You know, it’s tricky. I do try and use The original Green pan (not aluminum) and still do use them today when possible; however, they just don’t cook like the ballarini does. So that is why I cook with it still!
