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.

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.

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.

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 have been on a mushroom kick lately and tried this dish last week. It was great and the mushroom flavor was very prominent. http://food52.com/recipes...

Also from Smitten Kitchen (originally from Gourmet) - I've done this recipe a few times: http://smittenkitchen.com...
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.

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