With little effort, these harbingers of spring can be prepped to use in a multitude of dishes. One of the tastiest is simply sauteing them with butter and shallots. It's a classic way to highlight their umami earthiness. This preparation makes a delicious accompaniment to any main dish, though it's equally wonderful tossed with pasta, stirred into risotto, served alongside eggs -- and of course, enjoyed on its own.
Add the butter, olive oil, thyme, shallot and garlic to a large high-sided skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted and shallots are softened, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook, gently stirring occasionally, until they release moisture and are golden brown on edges of stems, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
