You can pickle them, saute them like spinach and serve as a side dish; serve them eggs - here are a selection of ramp recipes:

I love using ramps in risotto; you can finely chop and sauté the stems in place of onions, then chiffonade the leaves and add them at the end of cooking. You get a mellow, complex flavor from the stems, with a pungent garlicky grassy flavor from the raw leaves. Sometimes i'll add fiddleheads or fava beans, or even spicy Italian sausage if I want protein; the strong flavor of the ramps still comes through. This risotto is one of my favorite recipes of spring. :)

My absolute favorite thing to do with ramps is add them to scrambled eggs. Heat butter in a non-stick pan and add one thinly sliced ramp (white-part only) to the pan. After the ramps have softened, add your eggs. It adds an incredible amount of flavor and really jazzes up a common breakfast dish. If you really love the allium family, serve with chopped fresh chives!
