How to Make the Creamy Keto Garlic Mushrooms

Once you cook the mushrooms for five minutes, add your heavy cream, cream cheese, pepper, oregano, thyme, and salt into the skillet. Mix the ingredients together for a minute or two.

Place a lid on top of the skillet and allow the mixture to cook until the sauce becomes thick and creamy.
