I can eat mushrooms pretty much any way except raw on a salad.I especially like them in my spaghetti sauce and on pizza.

When I was in HS I worked at my cousin's pizza place; it was a one-person take-out place so I did everything, including making myself a pizza for dinner.  My usual was personal sized but must have weighed 5 lbs.  Tons of cheese, pepperoni, sausage, and... mushrooms.  He bought the large cans of sliced ones and they were in some sort of liquid.  I don't know how I got around to trying them but I loved them.  Dang, that brings back fond memories.  If I were on death row I might try to recreate that monstrosity.

Fast forward to today, our local pizza place does a pie called something like "Funghi Formaggio" which is a white pizza with different mushrooms on it.   Awesomeness.

Love them on burgers as well, but in recent years I've somewhat lost the taste for mushrooms standalone, I don't know why.  Funny thing is my wife used to dislike them and now she loves them, so they are in the rotation of veggies she cooks.  I don't hate them and I eat them, but I wouldn't choose them as a side in a restaurant.  :dunno:

Every so often we go to a place called 37 Steak(inside our Harrah's Casino) and I always get prime rib with a side of sauteed mushrooms :wub:

Mushrooms are fabulous - but not a must have agreed.

Love me some mushroom risotto though. :wub:

Love 'em.  And oysters are the greatest snot ball of all time.  Love them too.

Totally agree with you on the poop trees.  Anyone who says they like them is probably part of a vast conspiracy to get you and me to put poop trees in our mouths.

You're way off on cheese though.  American "cheese" is garbage and I don't like blue cheese either but just about every other cheese is great.

When I eat poop trees the birds talk to me and my cereal becomes a rainbow. Wait. That's Skittles in my milk.

A chef buddy of mine gave me a 2lb. bag of dried morels a couple of years ago. Have a couple of oz left.  I will miss them when they are gone.

They also serve as  lubrication when eating steak. 

Don't like in spag sauce. Or most chinese.
