It'd be hard to find an ingredient quite as versatile, palatable, and forgiving as the mushroom. Just imagine: You can take a seemingly simple recipe, add some shrooms sautéed in wine, and watch it turn into a company-worthy dish. Just like that. But, nonetheless, mushrooms don't always get what they're due. They're often treated like an afterthought—or an accessory, at best—when, really, they can take dinner to delicious new heights. And it just so happens that a ton of our favorite dishes feature some form of fungi.For instance, mushroom gravy? Whether it's prepared brothy to serve over brisket or creamy to ladle over egg noodles, we're in. No doubt about it. So for all of the like-minded mushroom lovers out there, we've rounded up the most crowd-pleasing appetizers—like our miniature pot pies filled with cremini mushrooms and goat cheese—and show-stopping main dishes that let every type of mushroom, from buttons to shiitakes to portobellos, really shine. Check out these 40 fungi-fresh mushroom recipes, and get those chanterelles ready.
