The only difference is slicing them will decrease the cooking time and you will have to watch them carefully so as to make sure that they don’t overcook. If slicing, make sure they are the same thickness for even cooking.
How to Store Keto Sautéed Mushrooms
Sautéed mushrooms should be stored in the fridge for 3-5 days. Whenever you wish to serve them, reheat the mushrooms in the microwave or in a hot skillet until heated thoroughly. You may need to add some more broth or butter to keep them from drying out. These keto sautéed mushrooms can also be frozen for up to 9 months, but freezing them makes them tougher, so they are then best used in a frittata or added to keto lasagna once thawed.
