Ranch Mushrooms are a rich, flavorful side dish or appetizer made with butter, white button mushrooms, and ranch seasoning mix. So good they can be served on their own! Then, freshly chopped parsley is added for a touch of freshness. If you love mushrooms, I also have Burgundy Mushrooms you will want to try, too!
Ingredients & Substitutions
Butter: Unsalted butter provides richness to the mushrooms. As it melts, it coats the mushrooms. Keep in mind that when first mixed with the mushrooms and ranch seasoning, it will look like a creamy sauce. But, as it continues to cook and the liquid from the mushrooms evaporates, it won’t look as creamy, just like melted butter in the skillet.
Mushrooms: White button mushrooms are the star of this dish. As they cook, they absorb the butter and ranch seasoning mix, resulting in flavorful, tender mushrooms. You could also use cremini, portobello, shiitake, or your favorite variety of mushrooms.
Dry Ranch Seasoning Mix: For all of that ranch flavor, you will add 2 packets of dry ranch seasoning mix, or about 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup). If you don’t have any on hand, make your own!

How To Store Ranch Mushrooms
To store leftover buttery ranch mushrooms, first, let them cool completely. (If the mushrooms have been left out at room temperature for more than 2 hours, toss them.) Once cooled, store the mushrooms in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They can be stored for up to 3-5 days. Reheat them in the microwave or on the stovetop.
- 1 cup (2 sticks / 227 g) unsalted butter
- 2 pounds white button mushrooms, cleaned
- 2 packets (1 ounce each) dry ranch seasoning mix, about ¼ cup total mix
- parsley, chopped for garnish
- To a large skillet over medium heat, add butter, mushrooms, and dry ranch seasoning mix. Once the butter is melted, stir to combine.
- Continue cooking, stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender and most of the water from the mushrooms is evaporated. The mushrooms will have a nice golden color.
- Garnish with parsley. Serve.

What the Test Kitchen had to say about this recipe:
These mushrooms are so buttery and full of flavor. The ranch seasoning adds such a nice touch! I would serve these as a side with chicken, pork, or steak!
Wow, these mushrooms are really delicious (and so easy)! I could eat these on their own, but they would also be amazing on top of my steak! Yum!
Absolutely delicious. These mushrooms are savory and buttery. The ranch adds a touch of wonderful flavor! It definitely can be paired with other main dishes, but these are so snackable alone!
So rich, so flavorful, and so delicious! I could eat a bowl of these on their own, but these would be wonderful on top of any variety of meat. Buffalo grilled chicken with these ranch mushrooms would be fantastic. I would love these over a steak, too!
I could eat a whole pile of these! Super easy to throw together and I love how the mushrooms just soak up the ranch flavor.
These are so good! If you like mushrooms, you'll love these. So flavorful, rich, and easy to pair!
