Just got some fresh morels from the farmers market today. I've never cooked with fresh morels before, and I'd love to hear some of your favorite preparations. Thanks in advance!

I went with a morel cream sauce over fresh fettucini -- yum! Next time I'll try some of the other suggestions -- thanks for the excellent ideas!

Nice in risotto also, to which sage leaves fried in brown butter makes a nice complement along with some lightly toasted nuts.

Ahhh, a superb mushroom. I like to cut out the stem and hollow out a bit, saute in butter, and stuff with cream cheese. Serve as a canape. Mix some of your favorite herbs with the cheese.

Sauteed with shallots and butter or in a cream sauce.
