Mushroom Ideas

Hi,

Just bought 5lbs of mushrooms as they were a great deal. We usually have sauteed mushrooms with port, and love them that way, but have no desire to have 5lbs of them.

Looking for ideas to use them. Ideally want a mushroom dish and not an "something & mushrooms" dish if you know what I mean. I know this is not easy but thought I would ask. There has to be some dishes that are mushroom centered, the whole world cannot saute them.

If there is something Italian maybe? or some baked mushroom dish?

Thanks

My first thought is Cream of Mushroom soup.......love it!
This is a good recipe, although I always add a couple of tablespoons of Sherry at the end.

Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe | Simply Recipes


Marinated whole mushrooms is another idea for use in salads, or just as "pop in the mouth" snacks. You could make your own marinade, or go the simple way, and just pour Italian salad dressing over the little darlins'.

Enjoy!!

PS.......this looks like a delicious casserole!!http://www.cooks.com/rec/doc/0,1950,...227202,00.html

Mushroom Casserole

PS.......this looks like a delicious casserole!!Cooks.com - Recipe - All-Time Favorite Mushroom Casserole[/QUOTE]

You're right, it looks so delicious that I tried to copy it. Now can you tell me why it shuts down my MS Word when I try to paste it. I don't want the whole page, just the recipe and I want to be able to adjust the font so I can read it. Is there some kind of block?

Since you love them sauteed with port, you have a start. Make the mushrooms with port the way you normally like them, but twice or more than usual. Put some cream in the leftovers the next day, et voila! Mushroom soup.

Stroganof. Again, since you have the sauteed mushrooms with port, just mix a tablespoon of flour (I like Wondra for this, but regular flour works OK) and a couple of tomato paste into a container of sour cream. Saute some beef cubes, add the mushrooms, some beef stock, and when all cooked 'til tender, take off the heat and stir in the sour cream mixture. Put it back on the burner and heat until thickened. Season with ground pepper and paprika. Serve on egg noodles (the most traditional I think), rice, or even potatoes (the way my dad likes it).

The thing is, even if you take all of the mushrooms and do your saute with port, it will make the leftovers last longer, and you can make these two dishes with the sauteed-in-port mushrooms!

Stem and stuff with a bread stuffing that can, if you wish, have some crab (or, yes, even krab) mixed in. I take the stems and chop into the stuffing mix. Brush with oil or melted butter, lightly sprinkle with cheese, broil until bubbly. Great appetizer.
