Being as I love mushrooms, I am loving all of em! One idea I had been tweaking but never got a chance to play with was using a portabella cap as the base for a kind of veggie pizza. Topped with maybe tomatoes, mozzerella (or BT's Gargonzola sounds good too), something like that.
I think the idea was to lightly fry the caps, then turn them over and fill to make a kind of pizza. Anyone else every thought of this, or heard of it or have a recipe for it?

Here's mine. The key to good carmelized shrooms is to not move them or crowd the pan. I've made these to top steaks, chops, chicken or as a side.

Use lots of garlic when you saute them.. about 1 clove per 100 gram. Also some onion. I like to slice the mushrooms thinly. You could also add chopped parsley when mushrooms are browned, add a glass of wine and then reduce it...

Try sauteed mushrooms with garlic, olive oil, a little bit of and thyme or oregano. I bet it'd be good.

In one of Martha Stewart's older cookbooks, she had/has a wonderful recipe for a saute of mixed mushrooms, in cream I think, that she served as a first course with each individual serving covered with a glass cloche. Said the aroma when each guest lifted their cloche was priceless. I've always thought it sounded both delicious & terribly elegant.

Every one has been promoting the saute of mushroom. Consider the stuffed versions available, cooked in the oven. If there is something that can't be made better by being stuffed in a mushroom and baked for 30 minutes, I'd like to know what it is :-)

Bob - I think the reason why no one mentioned stuffed mushrooms is because the original poster specifically stated in his first post that he wasn't interested in any stuffed mushroom recipes. He was looking for other options.

Thanks BC. I did catch that, but I am biased :-)

Stuffed mushroom are a palette I can't resist. There is very little you can't stuff a mushroom with and not improve it's character.

Mushrooms are the vegetable equivalent to bacon. And should be treated with the same respect :-)

Raw in a salad, cleaned up and in a sandwich, grilled, marinated and used with other marinated tasty stuff, sliced and sauted, or stuffed and ovenized. It has a serious purpose in life :-)
