OOOH!! I went back to see what some of the previous ingredients have been. I grew up in SE PA... Delaware County... not far from Kennett Square... the mushroom capital of the US. So I'm picking mushrooms.

I like them stuffed. Usually criminis. Chop stems and saute in butter with some chopped onion, herbs, add toasted breadcrumbs, s+p and moisten with cream and sherry. Stuff caps and bake in heavily buttered pan with grated chees sprinkled on the open faces. Or stuffed about a bunch of other ways depending on what you have to make into the filling.

Just picked up a mystery that has mention of mushrooms being fried with bacon. Smile.

Had this appetizer at a boardwalk place in Seaside... grilled portabello, topped with thing slice of grilled chicken, topped with slice of roasted red pepper, topped with gooey, melted mozzarella cheese. Coulda been a meal with a salad and some bread.

Kimberton Golf Course's "house" dressing is/was a vinagrette loaded with thin slice raw mushrooms.

I like to saute diced mushrooms and onions together with a little bit of thyme and then put them in pastry for little hand-pie appetizers. I'd eat dozens of these if given the opportunity.

Slumpie!

I first heard of slumpie through Pari's love of all things Terry Pratchett. He put out a cookbook under the guise of one of his characters, Nanny Ogg. In Nanny Ogg's cookbook, there is a humorous recipe for slumpie. This is the closest I can find to the recipe that's in the cookbook:

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 tablespoon canola oil
3 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
2 cups beef stock
2 cups Guinness stout
3/4 lb frozen spinach
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 1/2 teaspoons sage
1 teaspoon dry mustard
salt and pepper
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup butter, softened

Directions:


In a large saucepan, heat the oil and garlic. Add the ground beef and brown. Add mushrooms, beef stock, and Guinness and bring to a boil. Add remaining ingredients and return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1/2 hour, or until liquid has reduced by 1/4. Serve with potato dumplings, egg noodles or mashed potatoes.


I made it last night on the fly using 1lb of ground beef, sauteed with 1lb sliced mushrooms, dried minced onion and a few handfuls of fresh spinach (chopped), to which I added 4c of beef stock (totally forgetting about the Lake Louie Warped Speed Scotch Ale we had), salt, pepper and garlic powder, then thickened it with a mix of flour and water. Dead simple, and very yummy.

Pumpkin Mushroom Soup

1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons oil or butter
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon red curry powder
3 cups homemade chicken stock
1 pound can of pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1 tablespoon honey
Dash nutmeg
Salt and pepper
1 cup heavy cream

Saute mushrooms and onion in oil or butter. Stir in flour and curry. Gradually add the broth, then the pumpkin, honey and seasonings to taste. Stir while cooking 15 minutes. Add cream and heat through without boiling. Top with a dollop of sour cream if desired. Makes 6 servings.

Slumpie and The Soup [is that a band?] sound really good.
Do you suppose there would be any harm in tripling the mushrooms in each?

Slumpie and the Soup - love it!

I can tell you that there would be no harm at all in tripling the mushrooms. I'd actually have no problem substituting more mushrooms for the meat, either.

Question only:

Beenie, what about using Slumpie as a faux shepherd's pie? Seems it would be great, either way. This is just the type of dish I've been craving. (okay, it got so bad I thought I wanted Hamburger Helper, so I definitely need to make a chili mac type of dish!)
I called it faux because I love lamb and I think that original shepherd's pie was/is made with mutton/lamb. Heck, guess I should just make it with lamb. (duh) Mmmmmmm!

When I do buy plain ole button mushrooms, I end up noshing most of them raw. Love them!

Speaking of the love of slime molds, rerun of the Simpsons takeoff on Lord of the Flies was on tonight. All the kids were eating roast pig, which lived off the slime mold on a rock. Poor Lisa was licking the rock.... That ain't me, regardless of my avatar! :lol:

I like to grill some seasoned cremini mushrooms fill with fresh picked thyme infused cheve cheese and toasted walnuts and then top with a balsamic reduction and fresh chopped parsley.

I don't see why not. Throw it in a baking dish, some mashed potatoes on top. Sounds great!

In other news... it's been brought to my attention that this thread is over two months old. It's time for thatchairlady to pick a winner!
