Sauted in butter. The I also like to fry them up in egg and cracker crumb. They are not to bad in scrambled eggs either.

Fave of all time is to sautee them fresh in unsalted butter, add cooking wine and simmer for sauce, then pour sauce over grilled lake trout.

MMMMMMMM. gringrin

I like to saute them in butter, or do the egg wash cracker crumb thing, and mix the morels up in a pot of wild rice. Soooooooo Good! The leaves are finally starting to bud up this way, it won't be long.

asleson, I have to ditto archerystud, Just saute them in butter (but DON'T burn 'em) and serve with your favorite whatever! I've been out about 11 times and have a bunch drying now. It's just hard to decide which way to make with them! My favorite is to TOTALLY dry them, grind them and serve them on top of scrambled eggs. I once had a hard time getting up for breakfast...but that did the trick!! Save'em, dry'em and eat'em when nobody else has'em, During the fall and winter...they're PRIMO!!! If you hunt rabbits...They are a PERFECT match to roast rabbit meat!! Phred52

I have found the butter and garlic my fave, I like to mix in some of the other spring bounties out their like Asparagus, Ramps & Fiddlehead Ferns when I cook them. It adds to the earthy flavors.

Cut them in half and put them on a screen or string them up with a needle and some fishing line. I usually put a fan on them at a low setting. They will be dry in a couple of days and they will keep for years.

Thanks Nate. Once they are dry how do you store them? zip lock, jar and I assume you don't want to freeze them. Been doing real good the last couple days 5-6 lbs. mix of grays and yellows

Looking for a morel soup recipe. A little help? Wild rice maybe? Have some leftovers that are shot for taste but still have good texture...

I like to cook about 3 pieces of bacon and then saute the half cut Morels in that. Then sprinkle over a salad. Yuum! wink

Fried in butter with fresh venison backstraps and onions is amazing.

Also with ruffed grouse. I brown the grouse breasts, then put in the crockpot with a can or two of cream of mushroom soup for a few hours. About 2 hours before it's time to eat, I add in the morels.

    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some. 
    • Brotha’ you got that right.   Actually I’m cooking hobos over the campfire in Ely right now.  Not a bad second fiddle.   I won’t be a cooking hobo in a blind this weekend.
