Make stock! Mushroom stock is great for pot roast, beef stew or soup. You can freeze it until it's soup season again.

Duxelles.Finely chop with shallots (you do that in a food processor), saute in butter. Spread on toast or serve next to a veal chop.

If you fine dice them, season with salt and pepper, and cook them in very hot oil until crisp and browned it is a nice substitute for bacon bits on a salad.
