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.

    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
