Button Mushrooms--Massive Amount

My DH came home with a big box of button mushrooms. They were a gift from a patient who has a mushroom farm and were picked this morning. I ate one raw and they are sweet! Any suggestions on what to make? Thank you!

  1. Soup, pizza, or stuff them if they are large enough.

        this was my first thought, but i would say only if you run out of other ideas and just want to USE a bunch of them quickly. if you wanna spread them out, id do something else first and see whats left

      2. Roasted or braised would be great!

        1. I've been wanting to make a mushroom pot pie.

            Mushroom pot pie sounds so good. Do you have a recipe?

              Shrooms AND pot in one pie? Now that's a food idea I can get behind.

                Hehehehehehehehe I have nothing else to add....

            2. Smitten Kitchen's classic mushroom bourguignon (meant for cremini, but will have enough flavor for button)

                That recipe is excellent! That's what I'm going to make tomorrow with the portobellos we got.

                  I've done this recipe with both button mushrooms and portobellos and it tasted great both times.

                    I made this for a vegetarian potluck last winter. It was awesome and there were no leftovers. Even mushroom haters liked it.
