When it comes to mushrooms, unless they have been formally identified by a local mushroom expert, it is best not to eat them. Many edible mushrooms look like dangerous poisonous varieties, and most lawn mushrooms are toxic, so it may simply be better to get rid of them.

Here is an article for ridding the lawn of mushrooms: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/lawn-care/lgen/eliminate-mushrooms-in-your-lawn.htm
