Fry 'em up, baby!

This spring we've been really lucky about getting morels to eat. Travis' family gave us a bunch, he went mushrooming with them and brought home more, he found some under his grandparent's bushes, and we had some growing right outside our back door. Crazy.
This one was all bent over on itself - needless to say, it was HUGE.

I'm holding this one.

All fried up and ready to go. So, so good.


  1. Wow! Those are huge! I love morels and I love mushroom hunting! We've recently introduced Paul to the idea but he thinks it's kinda strange. My dad would be so jealous you found them by your back door.

  2. So, have I told you how much I am salivating over your mushrooms? Mushrooms have been a craving for me this pregnancy. Mmmmmm.....

  3. ive never had mushrooms...i need to try them sometime.....

  4. Ok, I love mushrooms but these don't look appetizing what so ever... do I need to be from the Midwest to understand?

  5. Ton, you probably do need to be from the midwest. Does Ben like them?

    Lisa, I had my first kiss with Travis on a mushroom hunting date. Now that says classy. ;)

  6. Yum! So if you have more wild mushrooms, you should try this recipe (or some variant of it): ASPARAGUS AND MOREL BREAD PUDDING
    Go to to check it out.

  7. Yeah Ben said he likes em, guess I'll have to try it next time we're out!
