Chicken of the Woods
The first time I tried chicken of the woods mushrooms I swore they tasted like grilled cheese. When I saw them at the farmers market I couldn't resist picking up some more. (At $1.25 an ounce, I didn't grab a ton.)
In addition to having interesting flavors - chicken most notably recoginzed over grilled cheese - these fungi retain their bright orange hues even when cooked.
I sauteed mine in brown butter with onions, garlic and salt. I served them over a bed of lettuce with a lemon vinaigrette.
