Sauté recipe

Take a look at the picture. This is my basic recipe for chanterelles. My kids like when they are cooked so much that they are crispy but not burnt. I prefer them still a little mushy but very cooked.

The beautiful thing about this recipe, is in my opinion, it is the best way to preserve them for a couple of weeks if you don’t want to or can’t use them right away. Once done cooking, I put them in a Pyrex dish until they have cooled to room temperature. Then I store then in the refrigerator with an airtight lid.

Be sure to scrape the pan and get all of the oil/liquid in the pan when moving them to the storage container. Even the oil/liquid alone is delicious to use as a substitute for oil or butter in different recipes.

Chanterelle Sauté Recipe

cut chanterelles
  • Slice the chanterelles so they are about ¼” thick. ( see pic of how I cut mine)
  • Slice at least 3-4 cloves of garlic, the more the merrier.
    • My kids love the crispy mushroom flavored garlic
  • turn your pan on medium to low heat and add the butter. I like using a lot of butter (half a stick or so)
  • Add some olive oil to the butter once melted or whenever.
  • Mix together the oil and butter
  • Adding oil to the butter up’s the temperature it takes to burn the butter
  • Once you have all your butter melted and olive oil added in turn up the heat to medium high heat
  • You want the pan very hot, but not hot enough to burn the oil/butter

  • Once the liquid has come up to temp, add your sliced mushrooms into the pan and get them all stirred up as much as possible
  • Add the garlic and stir again
  • Continue cooking and adjust heat if you feel like your pan is getting on the dryer side
  • I am actively engaged when the chanterelles are cooking. Stirring, assessing and giving it my love and attention

  • I err on adding more butter as I like the additional liquid I’ll have at the end.
  • Sauté until you have them thoroughly cooked.

  • Once cooked to your liking, finish with salt and stir it up
