Potato, Mushroom and Onion Saute

2 lb golden potatoes, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 cup crimini mushrooms, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons oil
1-2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon dried sage leaf
freshly ground black pepper

In a large saucepan, heat the oil. Add potatoes, garlic and onions. Saute, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper and sage. Continue to saute, stirring occasionally, for about 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are softened. Add mushrooms and saute an additional 2-4 minutes or until they have cooked down. Serve immediately.

My thoughts:

We had bought steak for dinner and couldn’t decide on a side dish. We had some rapidly deteriorating mushrooms in the fridge and a couple of potatoes and this is what we came up with. The flavors complement each other perfectly. While we had it as a side dish for dinner, it would also do well at breakfast time, think of it as fancy home fries.


  1. Sounds delicious!

  2. I love potatoes, mushrooms and onions! This is my kind of recipe! YUM

  3. this is the perfect trinity of ingredients. nice!

  4. This recipe was great! I didn’t have any fresh sage, so I used basil and some red pepper flakes.
    I used baby bellas and small red onions. I also added about 1/2 cup of white wine. Was a huge hit!

  5. Another great addition would be adding some thyme, you can’t go wrong adding thyme to anything with mushrooms

  6. The recipe seems great. I'm trying it right now. Unfortunately, the onions cook a whole lot faster than the potatoes. How do you prevent all the onions from burning before the potatoes finish?

  7. Adrian-
    I think you are cooking at too high of a temperature. The onions should not burn before the potatoes are done. Or perhaps your potatoes are cut too thickly?
