Morels are so packed with flavor, they don't need a bunch of help otherwise. This is the way we always fix them, (except slight difference) I deep fry in 350 oil. Some people I know dips them in beaten egg and fine cracker crumbs. I have fried in butter, but I like the results with oil. Could always drizzle a bit of melted butter over them after frying, if desired. The most I've ever found is enough to fill a grocery sack. If you've found some I'm jealous.
I personally think they taste like a gourmet chicken nugget! Easy and absolutely delicious
I added half flour and half cornmeal to coat them.In the South they call these mushrooms Dry Land Fish!I don't know why.They are wonderful too bad you can only find them in spring.I love them they are only mushrooms that I will eat.
Roasting asparagus and morel mushrooms creates an extra dimension of flavor. Seasoned with fresh thyme, the vegetables are served with arugula and drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
