How to Store Fresh Mushrooms

If you purchase your mushrooms, it’s the best way to continue storing them. The containers are designed to breathe, so the mushrooms can release the ethylene gas they give off.

The plastic wrap on top of the container will keep the mushrooms fresh until you break the seal. Once you do, simply store the remaining mushrooms in the same container and add more plastic wrap on the top.

Raw mushrooms last 4-7 days in the refrigerator.

Best Ways to Clean Mushrooms

You don’t want to wash or soak your mushrooms because they are porous and absorb the water. It will make them taste watery.

Try cleaning your mushrooms with a damp cloth or paper towel first. You can also use a soft mushroom brush. If the mushrooms still have a lot of dirt, rinse them with water and immediately dry them thoroughly.

Make sure to cook them immediately after cleaning because they tend to get slimy if you don’t.

Tips for Making Mushroom Toast

  1. You can substitute any mushroom for cremini mushrooms like white button mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, or wild mushrooms.
  2. Sour cream can be used in place of crème fraîche.
  3. You can substitute your favorite herb for thyme.
  4. The better quality the bread is, the better the dish will taste. Any good country or French bread tastes amazing topped with the creamy mushrooms. Sourdough bread is also a good choice.
  5. You can add a poached egg or a fried egg to the mushroom toast for a twist on the recipe.
  6. Cremini mushrooms are also known as Baby Bella Mushrooms or Baby Portobellos
  7. Grilled bread slices are also a great base for your creamy mushrooms.
  8. I like to add freshly ground black pepper and a generous pinch of sea salt to my sautéed mushrooms. If I’m craving spice, I add chili flakes to the top of my slice of toast with mushrooms. Lemon zest is also a fun topper to try.

How long will sautéed mushrooms last in the refrigerator?

You can refrigerate the sautéed mushrooms for 3-5 days in the fridge in an airtight container.

Can you freeze the cooked mushrooms?

Because the recipe has dairy, it is best not to freeze the mushrooms because they will taste grainy when thawed and reheated.
