Looking for fresh morel mushroom recipes/suggestions, please!

Found my usual haul, and I'd love to hear other ideas of how to cook them - one of my favorite things to do with them is serve them in a cream sauce with asparagus, poached egg, and a pinch of lemon zest over a slice of good, crusty bread. But I'd like to try something else and I'm looking for suggestions!

In a classic red wine sauce to use over steak.
On spaghetti or papardelle - your asparagus sauce, or with peas, or with tomato.

Oh thanks Nancy! Red wine sauce and steak sounds like the other end of the spectrum from my usual, great idea!

I love this recipe.... https://food52.com/recipes... I often forgo the crostini part and use the leeks and morels on polenta or pasta. Sometimes I add a touch of white wine.

Thank you! I like the lack of cream in this recipe.

Forgot to mention, works wonders on fish. I used it on roasted halibut and cod.

Imho the less you do to them, the better. Onions or ramps or leeks and morels make a lovely sauce for linguine when laced together with a bit of white French vermouth. If you really have a mess of them, they're wonderful sautéed in the best butter you can find and served alongside some seared scallops. or a veal chop.

Oooh scallops sound good too! But I agree, simple for morels is the best. Thanks!

You are so fortunate to have a "usual haul"! In our house, the ONLY way to eat morels is to dredge them in flour and pan fry them.

Yes, I know I'm lucky with the little morel patch out back! It's my last season here before I move so I wanted to treat 'em special this year. Thanks for the idea!
