We’ve tried many variations for cooking morel mushrooms over the years, but this is the favorite we always come back to! Enjoy!


fresh morels







Clean morels and cut in half. Melt butter in frying pan at medium heat. While cooking, don’t let the pan overheat or run out of butter. In a small bowl, crack eggs and stir. On a plate, pour flour and sprinkle with salt and pepper to your liking. Roll morel halves in egg until covered, then roll in flour until coated. Place in pan and sautee mushrooms until golden brown, flip and brown on other side.

*No ingredient measurements due to wild game, fish and gathered food always being in different sizes and different amounts. (A half-stick of butter, 1 to 2 eggs and 1/3 cup of flour is a good place to start for two people.)
