King of the Plate (Morels with Flour)

Courtesy of Jim from Imperial
I can't for the life of me figure why anyone would ruin a perfectly good morel mushroom with saltine crackers!!
I have introduced a dozen people to the mighty morel with this tried and true recipe -- which lets the mushroom be king of the plate. All of them have become converts and a few reported a nearly religious experience! Serve the mushrooms with homemade bread (warm) with butter and you have a meal better than any that has ever been served to royalty.
There is no better use of a morel then when it is covered in flour and sauteed in butter and eaten. I wouldn't have them any other way!!!!
