I love mushrooms!
I had a supervisor that would do up a whole crockpot of them for potlucks. Basically she would take 4 sticks of butter and a packet of ranch dressing mix and melt it in the crockpot. Then add 3 or 4 packages of fresh mushrooms...they shrink as they heat up. Once they cook in the butter for a while you just eat 'em up. Even though I love them, I would think it may be a little much to just eat a bowl full. I think this would be good to have when you are BBQing to serve as a side to burgers/steaks.
She tweeks the seasoning as needed, more or less as you like.
I LOVE hot and sour soup. The gals at work for some reason are really comfy telling me how gross it looks (a habit I wonder why people feel it's ok to do) but I love it anyway.

As I am allergic I guess I'll never acquire that taste. Elephant boogers seems about right. :rofling:

It's also called bay leaf, for those who aren't familiar with other names. Sounds yummy!

Binkykat, that recipe would be good as a mushroom dip, for crackers or crostini or just plain ol' french bread.

I love mushrooms! Yumyumyum!!

The "Cooking for the Rushed" series of cookbooks has lots of recipes with mushrooms. I especially like the Stuffed Chicken and Chicken Cacciatore recipes. (And they only take an hour to prepare and bake... but you're asking about mushrooms...) I recommend trying it out from your local library & seeing if you like it.

I always put mushrooms in salads and stirfrys. And if I'm going to sautee them, I do it with shallot (smallish purple onion-things) and thyme. My sister makes an awesome sour cream based dip and you can eat mushrooms straight with it.

Once, I had something called "Mushrooms masquerading as escargot" where they baked the mushroom caps and covered them with a butter-garlic sauce or some sort. Extremely delish!

Thanks for the recipes!

KnittingNat, that soup sounds great I think I'm going to try it.

Mason, I used to hate mushrooms but then I seemed to aquire a taste and I love them now. I guess if you're alergic though you'll never like them.

Binkycat, that recipe sounds like it'd be a great sandwich/burger topper. I'm going to have to remember that one.

Cathoo the Mushrooms masquerading as escargot really does sound delish! I know I'll be trying that one.

This is a Paula Deen recipe, which is ironic in that my mom has the exact same recipe, but used to make it 25 yrs ago. So I will share, but modify to the way my mom made them.

3 lbs whole mushrooms, throughly washed
1 stick of butter (not margarine)
2 cups burgundy wine
1 tablesppon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 chicken bouillon cubes
2 beef bouillion cubes

Wash the mushrooms to remove all dirt. Place inside a large crockpot and add the remaining ingredients. The liquid will not cover the mushrooms at first. Cover and cook on low setting for about 8 hours.

**My mom would start this at night or leave during the day while at work. I will tell you that this has a very strong, potent smell. She used to put the crockpot out in the garage to cook it (since we had an attached garage and my dad hated the smell).

This was the recipe that got me started eating the little things.

Enjoy!

I also love the Bearpaws at Timberlodge Steakhouse. Basically a big Portobello cap with a stuffing mixure on it. You get 3 or 4 on the plate from the appetizer menue. I also dig them as a sub for burger patties. At work, the chef's in our cafeteria make a Philly "steak" sandwich with sliced portobellos in place of strips of meat.
Since I had gastric bypass surgery several years ago, sometimes I have trouble with meat, on those days you get the satisfaction of eating a "burger" but the 'shroom is easier to chew up properly.
