I forgot to tell you what I made with some of the morels I had found.

Total Time 28 mins


  • skillet
  • mixing bowls (2)
  • cookie sheet


  • 15-20 medium sized morels washed and halved
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tbs crushed black pepper
  • 1 tbs crushed sea salt
  • 3 tbs Parmesan cheese fine grated
  • 3-4 thick slices medium cheddar
  • 1 egg for egg wash
  • 4 sticks butter



  • Mix all dry ingredients in a shallow bowl. (bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper)
  • Warm healthy amount of butter in small frying pan.
  • Beat egg and place in separate shallow bowl.


  • Dip shrooms in egg wash and dredge into breadcrumb mixture, immediately place into hot butter. Fry until crispy golden brown.
  • remove from skillet and arrange shrooms on small cookie sheet, placing a 1/4 inch strip of cheddar in the middle of each one.
  • Place into a preheated 375° degree oven for about 4-6 minutes, or until cheese melts.

Try with any of your favorite cheeses or spice up the breadcrumbs with some cayenne pepper and minced garlic.
