Morels and Beer….that’s right BEER!

I’m a pretty basic guy so my methods are pretty basic, but I love using my cast iron skillet (still available at Farm & Fleet) with a huge hunk of butter.
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 35 mins


  • cast iron skillet


  • 10-15 morels cleaned and sliced
  • 1 lb butter
  • 1 bottle beer (Heineken is best)
  • 1 splash hot sauce
  • 2 tbsp seasoning salt


  • Heat cast iron skillet over medium heat and add lots of butter
  • After soaking the morels in salt water and cutting them in half I throw them in the skillet over medium heat
  • Then you take some beer (probably from that one you are drinking in celebration of your find) and put just a couple of splashes in (Heineken is best)
  • Then sprinkle some seasoning salts, and a just a bit of hot sauce and cover.
  • Turn, stir, or whatever, now and then, (don’t forget to drink your victory beer too).
  • I leave them on for about 20 minutes or so on a medium heat.
  • Serve with anything and enjoy!


Note from The Great Morel - a stout, porter or heavy lager beer will do as well!
