  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 7 ounces cremini or white mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine or broth (chicken or veg)
  • 3/4 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Add the oil and butter to a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter has melted, add the mushrooms and onions.
  • Sauté until the mushrooms have released their water, it cooks off, and the mushrooms and onions are nicely seared (about 10-12 minutes).
  • Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the garlic, Dijon mustard, Italian seasoning, and lemon juice. Cook for about 30 seconds.
  • Stir in the white wine and let it bubble for about 30 seconds - 1 minute.
  • Pour in the cream and cook for another 3-5 minutes or until the sauce has thickened to your liking.
  • Season with salt & pepper to taste (I am fairly generous with cream sauces) and stir in the chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
