This one’s for @BryWisteria! September is Mushroom Month so I thought of you when I saw this easily little recipe.
Slow Cooker Ranch Mushrooms
Ready In: 2-5 hrs
1 pound fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 envelope Ranch salad dressing mix
Clean the mushrooms but leave them whole. Place them in the crock pot.
Combine the melted butter and Ranch salad dressing mix. Drizzle it over the mushrooms.
Cover the crock pot and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours, stirring once after the first hour to coat the mushrooms in the butter mixture.
Serve the ranch mushrooms hot.

I’m definitely trying this one. Thanks Amethyst!
What kind of mushrooms are you going to try with this? The original recipe looks like button mushrooms or something.
I just learned that button, cremini, and portobello are all the same mushroom type, just at different stages of life. Whoa.
I wonder if I could try this with a mix of button, cup, portobello, shiitake, and oyster mushrooms. And then instead of ranch, maybe just an aioli and a mix of herbs.
And now I just learned that cups are button mushrooms which have grown to a stage where the cap is beginning to open, and some gills can be seen. Whoa.
My mushroom lore skill is rapidly levelling up today, thanks to you, @Amethyst.
White button mushrooms are what are recommended. I bet any would taste good though.
Glad I could make you interested in mushrooms, @starborn! You should talk to Bry, she’s the Mushroom Queen around here!
I can’t wait to try this! I am a mushroom lover!
Hooray for Mushroom Month!!!
I didn’t know mushrooms got their own month- this is so cool! Thank you for an extra special recipe, @Amethyst- now I need to go get myself some mushrooms to cook with!
Awwww I’m blushing! Although I don’t know if I’m worthy of the title Queen, maybe just Mushroom Squire as this point haha. Still have a long, long way to go in the world of mycology and mush-studies
LOL! Love your dancing mushroom! I saw that it was mushroom month and just had to post it. Glad you liked it!
I loved it! Thanks again, Amethyst!
(And another dancing friend for mushroom month! )
On the one hand, I’m slightly embarrassed by how much these mushroom dances look like the ones I randomly break out into at home, @BryWisteria.
On the other hand, I’m totally vibin’ with them.
Hahaha I love it- let out your inner dancing mushroom and vibe away!
My quality control assistant and I are so ready for some mushroom shenanigans!
I’m thinking of combining aspects of the above recipe with this one, Slow Cooked Herbed Mushrooms, for the smaller mushrooms because I love overloading everything with more herbs.
And do something similar to this, Oven-Roasted Portobello Mushrooms, with the larger ones. I might just skip the bread crumbs.
I just have to wait for my partner to wake up so they’re not missing out. They love mushrooms as well.
Man those look good! Bon apatite!
