Hi everyone! I'm bored and decided to make a thread on which morels you like to eat the most? Small greys or Big yellows? Me? I prefer to eat the small greys just because they are perfect bite size! And also a bonus question does anyone like to eat the beefsteaks mushrooms? I have ate them all my life and had no problems but lately been having people tell me they are not good for you to eat... is this true? Thanks

I'm not picky about the morels I eat. They are too rare to come by and big yellows can be cut into bite sized pieces anyway. :) I honestly don't know if I could pass a blindfold test between the two so I'm probably not the person to ask.

I've always called your pictured mushrooms "false morels". Never tried to eat one...

I'm not picky as to which (true) morels I eat. I love them all! I've never tried the Beef Steaks, but after finding out their dubious makeup, I'm not sure I ever will. I've also had one occasion to eat the tallish half free 'morel'. There were a couple of those mixed up in a batch that I had to buy one year. I don't think that the flavor or even the texture of those is really all that great, so I pass them up, too.

That said, first I halve and wash my morels draining them thoroughly on a stack of paper towels. I pat them dry. Immediately after cleaning them, I dredge them in egg wash and then in a mixture of half flour and half Jiffy Mix Corn Bread mix. Then I slowly fry them up in real butter - never margarine or other oil of whatever sort - turning several times. Once they are a nice golden brown, they are ready to eat or store away for later. I don't season them because I want to be able to enjoy their own delicious delicate flavor.
