Got some fresh morel mushrooms at work a few days ago...

And they're freaking HUGE! Here's a pic:



That's a full-sized sheet pan that the morels are on. One of my coworkers put her hand in the shot for scale.

<hush>I think it was an "under-the-table-deal" with a local mushroom hunter</hush>

I probably won't be making anything with them. I work in the "cold side" of the kitchen, Garde Manger, cold salads, sandwiches, hor d'ourves, desserts, etc. It's the "hot side" of the kitchen that uses them.

I haven't seen morels like that in 25 years since I moved from Illinois! Good luck and tell us how you did them!

With mushrooms like those, i wouldn't do too much, they are so delicious and expensive they need to be the showcase and not mixed with tons of other flavors. simply toss them with some pasta with EVOO and a little parm or lightly saute them and serve them alongside of a steak or veal. Sure, there are many recipes and i'm sure you will get many, but like i said, with something like those, let them compliment themselves, they are the star.

sautee at what temperature and just coat em with olive oil salt and pepper?

to serve with steak i mean.

are they difficult to clean? because i have access to buy these.

it looks like they would be a b*tch to clean.
