Sauteed Morel Mushroom Recipe


  • Fresh Morel Mushrooms (Quantity up to you - We prefer about 10)

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Salted Butter (butter preferred for taste)

  • 1 Teaspoon of Sea Salt

  • 1 Teaspoon of Ground Black Pepper

  • 2 cloves of garlic, diced finely

  • 1/8th cup of parsley, chopped finely.


  1. Pick the best quality morels you have and make sure they are completely cleaned

  2. One just one side of each mushroom, slice the morels up the seam from the bottom of the stem to the top of the cap. In other-words, butterfly the morel so you can open it up. Do not slice them in half.

  3. Add butterflied morels to a bowl, where you should add about 1/4th cup of olive oil OR melted butter (.5 sticks - preferred for taste). Add your chopped garlic, parsley, and spices as well. Toss the ingredients until each mushroom is lathered in everything.

  4. In a pan, add another .25 sticks of butter and bring it to medium-high heat

  5. Once the pan is hot and butter is sizzling, lay the butterflied morels belly-flat onto the pan like you would with bacon. Make sure to include any parsley or garlic left behind in the bowl.

  6. Cook and lightly stir for about 5 minutes, until the mushrooms are golden brown. You may have to flip them periodically to avoid sticking to the pan.

  7. Done! Enjoy on rice, with pasta, or on its own! We like to add some lemon juice at the end, but they will be delicious regardless.
