TOO MANY MUSHROOMS
I have two 8oz packages of sliced white mushrooms and nothing to do with them (I bought them for a recipe which I've decided not to make). I hate for them to go to waste and was looking for any good ideas - I'd love to make something that I can freeze. Other ideas beyond Mushroom Barley soup? Thanks!
+1 for omelets, baked potato or burger topping, mushroom-barley soup and duxelles.
serve over polenta, pasta or mashed potatoes.
No such thing. Mushrooms are good in everything. Not much I can think of that mushrooms aren't good in or with. Ok, maybe not in yogurt.
hannaone has lots of good ideas.
Also in stews.
Sauted and topped on burgers or steaks or veal or chicken.
Either raw (for white m'rooms) or sauted in salads
In rice, risotto, polenta, quinoa, or other grain dish
As the star of or supporting player in pasta sauce
In lasagna or ravioli
Finely chopped (as in food processor) and made into a sauce
Cream of mushroom soup
The more I think about it, you may not have ENOUGH mushrooms.
Mushroom omlettes, w/ or w/o cheese (goat, cheddar) and/or herbs (just about anything).
Alice Waters has a wonderful recipe for freeform mushroom raviolis that you bake, rather than boil, so that they aren't nearly so fussy and annoying to make--you parboil the (preferably homemade) noodle, make a couple of big "hankerchiefs" or pockets filled w/ sauteed shrooms, shallot, thyme, and some creme fraiche, then bake them hot and quick w/ a little parmesan on top and serve over greens. So delicious, although even better w/ exotic mushrooms.
No such thing as too many mushrooms
Stir fry some with onions and peppers in meat drippings and serve with steak.
Add to almost any type of stir fry dish.
saute with onions and beef, add to omelet
salads, toppings, garnishes
chopped, add to quesadilla
battered and fried
place in stuffed peppers or cabbage
saute in bacon grease with onion, garlic, chives and top your baked potato
