If you eat meat, sautee them and put them on a burger or steak.

When I was a young cook, I think I put mushrooms in almost everything. Now I use a medley of beans, usually black, kidney, and pinto, and leave the mushrooms out.

You could make shiitake bacon which is a dead ringer for the real thing.

so it would be a waste of good mushrooms, just odd little bits of weird, rubbery texture in the chili and nothing else.

I think they're best on their own, sauteed in butter, seasoned with nutmeg, and eaten on toast.

and my kind of cooking.

havent been out yet today, but should have a flush of wine caps today, too.
a pleasant surprise they were. had them 5 yrs ago, then they didnt come back. but they popped up about 10' away this fall. had 4 flushes so far. had a good rain last night, and i watered them yesterday. so hoping.
