Sautéed Mushrooms With Caramelized Shallots

This recipe for sautéed mushrooms with caramelized shallots is one of those dishes that will haunt you. You might want to add a splash of excellent vinegar or some freshly grated lemon zest, but neither is necessary. Though a side of mushrooms may not be traditional, you’ll be amazed at how well they go with everything on the Thanksgiving menu.


  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil, or canola oil
  • 1 cup cubed (1/4-inch) thick-cut bacon
  • 1 cup thinly sliced shallots
  • 8 cups trimmed and halved mixed mushrooms, such as chanterelle, oyster, black trumpet and/or cremini (1 1/4-1 1/2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh sage
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Step 1
Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and browned, 3 to 4 minutes.
Step 2
With a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon and shallots to a plate lined with a paper towel to drain.
Step 3
Remove about half the fat from the pan. Return the pan to medium heat, add mushrooms, cover and cook, stirring once, until the mushrooms release their liquid, 3 to 4 minutes. Uncover and cook until the liquid evaporates, about 1 minute. Add water and scrape up any browned bits.
Step 4
Return the bacon and shallots to the pan and cook for about 1 minute. Stir in sage, butter, salt and pepper. Serve warm.
