Spoon these indulgently saucy mushrooms (inspired by classic Midwest casseroles) over baguette slices or crostini. The recipe comes from the Chowgirls Killer Catering cookbook. To serve the dish skillet-style, start the recipe off in a 10-inch oven-going skillet.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large portobello mushroom caps, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces shiitake, oyster, or other mushroom variety, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated pecorino or Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon truffle oil (optional)
  • 3/4 cup coarse fresh breadcrumbs tossed with 2 Tablespoons melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees . In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter with 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Add cremini mushrooms; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer mushrooms to a large plate; set aside. In the same pan, melt an additional 1 tablespoon each butter and olive oil. Working in batches if necessary, cook portobello and shiitake mushrooms until tender, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Transfer to plate with cremini mushrooms.
  2. Reduce heat to low; melt 1 tablespoon butter. Whisk in flour. Cook and stir until mixture begins to brown. Stir in milk and cream. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir 1 minute more. Stir in cheese and cooked mushrooms. Stir in truffle oil, if desired. Season to taste.
  3. In a medium microwave-safe bowl, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Add breadcrumbs. Toss to coat.
  4. Transfer mushroom mixture to a 2-quart casserole dish (or leave in skillet, for skillet-style serving). Top with buttered breadcrumbs. Bake until heated through and crumbs are golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Serve warm.
