Best use for mixed mushrooms?

I have a beatiful bag of mushrooms (oyster, crimini, shitake, wood ear etc) from the farmer's market. I would like to do a mushroom dish for thanksgiving - all I can think to do is to Sautée them with butter and sage. Any other ideas? They really fresh, delicate mushrooms and I want to showcase them.

Sautee with garlic, sage and parsley by all means. In order to showcase the mushrooms you could serve them over a soft polenta.

Mushroom lasagna. Ina has a good recipe.

Also from Smitten Kitchen (originally from Gourmet) - I've done this recipe a few times:
Really good, served just like she shows with some crusty bread to soak of the juices. You can use any kind of mushrooms. Maybe a good first course or appetizer, depending on how much you have.

I have been on a mushroom kick lately and tried this dish last week. It was great and the mushroom flavor was very prominent.

Sunset Magazine had a beautiful salad last month with mushrooms roasted in a 400º oven (drizzle olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper and fresh thyme leaves) roast 15 minutes. Served with a dressing of shallot, sherry vinegar, hazelnut or olive oil. Served over mixed lettuces and garnished with shavings of manchego sheese and roasted hazelnuts. It was delicious; you could also use roasted mushrooms on their own, adorning a soup (williams-sonoma has a terrific mushroom soup on their site. I make a variant of it for T-giving every year). Roasting the mushrooms concentrates their marvellous flavor.

I like to sauté in butter and then add Italian or Caesar bottled dressing for marinated mushrooms. I always use sliced button mushrooms since I don't usually have the mixed. It might overpower the mixed mushroom flavors.

You could saute them and then add to a light cream sauce, which I would make with a combination of chicken(or turkey) broth and cream.
