These are the best grilled mushrooms: smoky, tender, and so easy to make! Cook them on skewers, then sprinkle with fresh herbs and lemon. For portobello caps, go to Grilled Portobello Mushrooms.


  • 16 ounces baby bella (aka cremini) mushrooms*
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, plus wedges for spritzing
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh thyme and oregano (or other fresh herbs0


  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat (375 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit). If using wooden skewers, soak them while the grill preheats, or about 15 minutes (we like using metal skewers).
  2. Clean the mushrooms. Place them in a bowl and mix with the olive oil, lemon juice, kosher salt and several grinds of black pepper. Thread them onto skewers.
  3. Place the skewers on the grill grates and cook for about 10 minutes until tender, turning every few minutes. Remove from grill and sprinkle with the chopped fresh herbs. Spritz with the juice of a few lemon wedges before serving. Serve with the remaining lemon wedges.


*Substitute button mushrooms if you can’t find cremini.
