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.

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!

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
nutmeg

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.
