here are the morels i bought from ebay. this was my first time trying morels
i didn't know how to cook them so i sauteed them in olive oil and butter, with a bit of salt.
i don't know if it's an acquired taste, but i thought they were just okay. i'm glad i didn't cook too much cuz i probably couldn't have eaten much more. anyone have any good (but simple) recipes they want to share?

Did you reconstitute them? If they're dried, you want to add some moisture back to them if you're going to fry them. Wrap some in some wet paper towels and put them in a baggie in the fridge overnight. Next day, cut them in half lengthwise and dredge them in flour, then in an eggwash and then in some bread crumbs seasoned with salt, pepper, and a little garlic powder. The butter, olive oil combo is good. Make sure the oil is nice and hot so the batter doesn't float off. Fry for 1- 1,1/2 minute per side.When done and after allowing to drain on paper towels, try adding a slice of Brie or soft cheese in the inner cavity while still hot.

Bring a can of chicken stock to a boil and add the dried morels ensuring that they are all covered. Remove from the heat and steep for half an hour. Drain and reserve the stock. discard any grit at the bottom of the stock. They should be soft when done.
Make a risotto out of them using the stock or reduce the stock and saute the morels then add the reduced stock and mount with cream or truffle butter (if you can get it). Pour this concoction over your favorite steak and savour the goodness.
