I can’t even begin to tell you how often I pull out a skillet, toss in sliced onions and mushrooms, a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper to go along with whatever else I’ve prepared for our meal.

Really, it couldn’t be any easier.

That’s the best thing about simple as can be recipes. You just turn to them to help finish out a meal and take it to a whole new level than if you’d not included it in the first place.

For example, I can’t remember the last time we’ve made hamburgers and not had mushroom and onion saute to go along with it.

I think that’s what they mean when they say a recipe is a staple in your family.

If I’m feeling really fancy, I’ll even toss in some fresh herbs to go along with it and amp up the flavors even more. Thyme, rosemary, or just a bit of parsley all taste delicious.

  1. I think I use my skillet at least once a day. It is for sure my most used kitchen tool and I love using it to saute veggies. These mushrooms look so good! We actually just had roasted mushrooms for dinner tonight, but I much prefer sauted I think. Plus, onions are always a great addition!

  2. This is one my favorite things on the planet. I remember one time when I was a teenager I asked my mom if I could have sauteed mushrooms and onions for lunch. Should’ve known I was a foodie then.

  3. Why don’t I ever think to do this? I love it! Love, love mushrooms!

  4. Mushrooms are my favorite. I love to saute mushrooms and onions. This makes me hungry!!!

  5. I LOVE this! I’m always looking for a quick, healthy veggie side dish to go with any protein I make. It’s also Paleo and since I started the 30 day challenge today, this just may make it to my table this weekend. Thank you.

  7. What a yummy side dish or topping for grilled steaks/burgers! I love a big heap of cooked mushrooms with minimal seasonings! Looks delish.

  8. If you added a little heavy cream at the end you could serve it on buttered toast. My idea of a heavenly lunch.

  17. Used some fresh bacon grease instead of butter. So yummy and so Paleo!

  18. Nice recipe! In fact im cooking it tonight. Yum yum ym ! 🙂

  19. We grow shiitake mushrooms on our farm in Tennessee, the first flush/crop was picked this morning…..thanks for sharing your ideas, I’m always searching for suggestions for the mushrooms we don’t sell. Yum, yum, can’t wait for dinner!

  20. Just made some hamburger stuffed baked potatoes and added your recipes for sautéed onions and mushrooms…except I added garlic to the saute! Awesome! Thanks!!

  21. Ohhhh, so delicious.I followed SFTREAT’s advice and I used bacon grease. Such a pleasant dish. This is a meal in itself. I really like onions and mushrooms and this was a perfect recipe. Yes, my friends, this is better than chocolate.

  22. I tried it today for my housewarming party, and it was amazing! Definitely the best thing that I served and it was super easy to to. A++

  23. I love this recipe. I’m about to make it right now but I have too many mushrooms to eat in one day. Can I freeze them after I cook them?

  24. Instead of yellow onions I used red onions, it has a more sweeter/more savory taste.  Plus thinly slicing your mushrooms into straws instead of chips helps them soak up more flavor.  Good recipe overall, though!
