Sauteed Chanterelles

Sauteed Chanterelles

Sharing is caring!

Remember those beautiful chanterelles I received?  I had two good-sized ones left, which left me with the dilemma of what to make.  We both love grilled steaks with mushrooms, so it seemed only appropriate.  This is a really good recipe for Sauteed Chanterelles.  You can also use other mushrooms if you do not have access to chanterelles.

The chanterelles are so flavorful that they really do not need too much added to them.  I sauteed them simply with olive oil, thyme, a little shallot, garlic and then finished it off with butter.  The perfect companion for these beautiful grass-fed steaks!

These chanterelles would also be lovely on a piece of toasted baguette.

Chanterelles are the food of my childhood. My mom sautees them with potatoes which get nice and crispy. They are perfection will little more than butter, salt and pepper!

You're so lucky to have them fresh! I have only seen dried chanterelles and morels at the store recently.

It's not even 8am and I could devour a plate of this right now. Lovely! Unfortunately, chanterelles are hard to come by in these parts :-(

I love chanterelle mushrooms but they're more like luxury to us as Joey would say. I would love to have the whole plate.
