Morels and Beer….that’s right BEER!
Courtesy of Scott in Door County, WI
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.
cast iron skillet
cleaned and sliced
(Heineken is best)
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!
