Every year my mother and I buy morels at one of our local farms (that specializes in asparagus). We've tried them a dozen different ways, but this is absolutely the best. A few years ago, my parents moved...and now they've begun finding morels somewhere in their backyard (but they're not sharing)! - apartmentcooker —Erin Jeanne McDowell
Test Kitchen Notes
I was lucky enough to find morels in my yard right after seven days of rain so I had to try this! At first, it looked like the flour and butter were just going to make a paste, but eventually they coated the mushrooms pretty evenly. I really enjoyed the peppery spice mixture on the large, meaty pieces of morel. My mushrooms were very moist and did not get as crispy as I would like before the butter started to brown, but I liked the flavor. For simply done mushrooms that come together in a flash, these are worth trying. Especially if you don't intend to share (Note: the recipe is for 1-2 servings)! - sara k. —sarah k.
I always have three kinds of hot sauce in my purse. I have a soft spot for making people their favorite dessert, especially if it's wrapped in a pastry crust. My newest cookbook, The Book on Pie, is out on November 10th, 2020.
