This sounds great - what comes to mind first is to fry up the stems and some onions/peppers/zucchini in some olive oil with a little salt and whatever herbs you have around (tarragon!). Then mix it up with cottage cheese, put it in the cap, cover it with some yummy cheese (asiago?) and bake. Yum. Can't wait to try this one.
Speaking of mushrooms on sale - I found 2 bags of portabellos on the discount rack. They looked like they had been manhandled a few too many times, but otherwise ok. So I cut them up, fried them and then added water to make a stock. After a couple of hours, I strained off the stock and put it away, and then I laid out the mushroom pieces on a cookie sheet and stuck them in the freezer. After a couple of hours, I put them in a freezer bag. Now I have fancy mushrooms for soups, sauces, risottos, etc. And on the cheap!
