This is one of my favourite...

Sautè mushrooms with thinly sliced onion or scallion. Season them with salt and pepper, maybe a dash of majoram. When they are well cooked, add a little white wine and let it get absorbed/evaporated. At the finish pour sour cream and heat it back up. It is delicious by themselves, or tossed with pasta.

What about mushroom bruschetta or an omelette or frittata? Or as one of the ways that I often eat them, simply pan cooked with some bacon cubes (slices), olive oil, salt and pepper (onions or onion salt is optional). Parmesan cheese to top.

When my husband finds them for a good price, he buys several boxes. We slice them and saute with garlic and olive oil, then sack them up in small ziplocks and put in the freezer. It's very handy when you need a few for a sauce or whatever.

This may sound strange but something like 35 years ago made a recipe several times using sliced mushrooms. I lost that recipe many years ago.

As I recall, and it is a stretch, cooked the shrooms in butter with some shallots. Added Scotch, yes the booze, and some cream sherry. And then, I think added some sliced scallions. There may have been more to it, but I sure cannot recall what it could have been.

It came to mind recently, I have no idea why, and tried it. Found it was OK, had a nice flavor, but needed something.

It is sweet from the sherry.

And that is where I am with the recipe.

Maybe I should have brought this up in a separate post, if so, apologize.

But it anyone knows of a similar recipe or has any thoughts, I remember those suckers as being very tasty.

Spinach-Artichoke Mushroom Casserole

1 lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced
8 T. butter, divided
2 T. all-purpose flour
1 cup milk, heated
salt and pepper to taste
2 10oz. boxes frozen spinach, shopped, thawed, and drained
1 1lb. can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 T. lemon juice

In a large skillet, saute mushrooms in 6 T. of butter; remove mushrooms and set aside. Add remaining 2 T. butter to drippings in skillet; when melted, stir in flour and cook until bubbly. Add milk and stir until mixture is smooth. Add salt, pepper, spinach, and mushrooms. Cook over med. heat for 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 350. Cover bottom of an oblong baking dish with artichoke hearts. Pour spinach mixture over. Mix sour cream, mayonnaise and lemon juice; spread over top of spinach mixture. Sprinkle nutmeg. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.

Mushroom in cream sauce
I also do a similar mushroom in cream sauce.
saute some garlic, shallots and mushrooms until soften. Now add a little liquor (I add whiskey). Then add a little heavy cream. Simmer. Remove mushrooms and reduce the pan liquids until it is like a thick sauce. Season with s/p and pour over mushrooms. Then mix a littel bread crumbs and some parmesan cheese put on top of mushrooms and stick under broiler until browned.

Mushroom Red Onion Steak Topping

1 cup ruby port
2 cups beef broth
4 cloves garlic
1/2 cup butter
1 lb. mushrooms
1 red onion sliced into thin rings
thyme,fresh
oregano, fresh
rosemary,fresh
sea salt
equal amounts cornstarch dissoleve in water (4 t.)
Fresh goat cheese, cooled until ready to crumble

Mix broth and port over med. heat. Reduce to 1 1/2 cups. Add garlic.
In additional skillet saute mushrooms and union in butter until onions are translucent and mushrooms are cooked but not soggy. Add the spices. When liquid is reduced, add the liquid to mushroom mixture. Add cornstarch mixture until desired thickening. Pour over grilled steaks and crumble goat cheese on top.
