Make your game-day party or Sunday brunch memorable with grill-toasted goodness from Kingsford® and ranched-up flavor from Hidden Valley® Original Ranch®.

Cooking for 4 people


  • 1 lb. large mushrooms (combo of cremini, portobello, wild), cleaned, trimmed and sliced 1/2-inch thick
  • 6 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 2 tsp. Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing, Seasoning & Recipe Mix Shaker
  • 4 slices thick-cut country bread
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • 0.25 cup sour cream
  • minced chives, for garnish

1 Food Prep

  • Cut four 12” x 12” squares of aluminum foil, and brush the dull sides with some of the olive oil.

  • In a large bowl, toss the mushrooms with 3 tablespoons of the olive oil and 2 tsp. of the ranch seasoning powder. Toss well to coat. Divide the mushrooms evenly among the four foil squares.
  • Make mushroom packets by folding the aluminum foil squares in half and crimping around the edges to seal.

2 Grill Prep

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.
  • Place the mushroom packets on the grill, and cook for about 20 minutes, flipping the packets once.
  • When the mushrooms are almost done cooking, brush the bread with the remaining olive oil, and season it with salt. 
  • Place the bread on the grill, and cook for about 2 minutes per side, until crisp on the edges with visible grill marks.
  • Toss the mushrooms with the sour cream, and place them on top of each piece of toast.
  • Garnish with minced chives and enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASY APP AND TASTY TOO I used this recipe at first, to use a large amount of mushrooms I was given. We were wowed by how delicious this is, for being quite easy to prepare. Have made this multiple times now, and my vegetarian sister requested the recipe.
