What to do with sliced mushrooms?

I have quite a few sliced mushrooms in the fridge. Any ideas on what to do with them? I usually make a good hungarian mushroom soup, but for some reason I'm not in the mood for it. Thanks in advance!

I like just munching on them.. but you could use them in salad,
saute them and serve with roast or steak, put them in a stuffing or you could mix some EVOO, salt, pepper and garlic powder then toss in the mushrooms and then roast them. Yummy!

I roast them with shallots, garlic, rosemary, and thyme and toss them with pasta.

I also make an Urban Peasant pasta dish with a mushroom sauce with whiskey and cream and Michael Chiarello's Pasta with Caramelized Mushrooms and Spinach.

Cora,
my kids love them sauteed in a little evoo and butter with leeks,or shallots, garlic, fresh parsley, salt and pepper,marjoram, then I make a roux, add a little white wine, beef stock and let it thicken a little, add several pats more of butter and serve over creamy buttery, cheesy polenta..Toss a green salad, some french bread..dinner

make a duxelle (finely chopped with fresh herbs and shallot or onion, sauted in evoo or butter) and stuff a meat loaf with it...wonderful...or stuff tomato with it and broil...

make a stroganoff or risotto with mushrooms as the main event and meat for subtle flavoring.

I love this stuff! It's a Pampered Chef recipe.

Mushroom Bread

1 8 oz pkg refrigerated crescent rolls
2 cups fresh mushrooms sliced
1 tablespoon butter melted
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
1/4 teaspoon fines herbes or Italian Seasoning

Instructions: Preheat oven to 375*.

Separate dough into triangles. Place on 13" baking stone. Spread & roll out dough to cover stone.

Toss sliced mushrooms in melted butter to coat. Arrange mushrooms on top of dough. Sprinkle with cheese & herbs.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes. Cut into squares & serve warm.

shrooms! i love em! I loved the pampered chef recipe, I plan on making the for our next "girls night" (the girls like shrooms, the boys don't - perfect appetizer for us!) I saute mine with butter, a little bit of olive oil, a pinch of beef bouillon and finish it with some sherry - serve with anything - this keeps nice in fridge too.

For my husband, a proper breakfast is bangers (sausages) w/ bacon, eggs, sauteed mushrooms and toast! He does this for us at Christmas time! I can honestly say I had never had mushrooms for breakfast before, but they really are lovely w/the eggs, toast and meat!

Hey, I bet you have more recipes than mushrooms now, don't ya You'll have to run out and buy more!

When I was in Scotland, my Grandad made us fried tomatoes every morning with our eggs & bacon. I had to force it down to be polite. And black pudding! Another Love the bangers and the bacon though!

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! Keep 'em comin!
