Beautiful Morels!

My wonderful neighbor just gave me a dozen of these, very fresh and plump! I haven't cooked morels for many years, last time I think I just fried them up in butter.

What should I do with these?

Is it these : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morchella ?

Or these https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gyromitra_esculenta ( yes they are also known as false morels or morels) ?

They're the real (nonpoisonous) deal! Morel hunting around here is a very popular hobby, and treasured patches are closely guarded secrets.

Mmmmmm, Wild morels! A mushroom lasagna, no tomato sauce, sounds good. A rich mushroom bisque comes to mind, too.

I like to make Morel and wild asparagus pizza's. Both come up the same time each year.

I do a lovely sauce with morels, cognac and cream and serve to beef or venison. It is really lovely. I have also made pie with morels.

I had to ask because I seen people on food forum using false morels and that isnt the best idea.

I would fry some bacon, fry the morels in the bacon fat, scramble a couple of eggs in the flavored grease and make a giant sandwich on good bread or stuff the mixture into a pita.
