So, what’s so special about morels?

Well, they’re notoriously difficult to farm. That means most of the morels you’ve seen and eaten were likely hand foraged.

Pretty cool, right?

Plus, their meaty texture makes them a fantastic vegan or vegetarian option.

Of course, these morel mushroom recipes are ideal for meat eaters too. Spoon them over pork chops, and you’ll be in fungi heaven.

1. Fried Morel Mushrooms

One bite of these fried morels, and you’ll beg for more.

The secret to these delectable bites is the coating on the mushroom. A good fried batter gives you a nice crunch while steaming the morel inside. 

Your next game-day snack table needs these amazing mushrooms front and center.

2. Sautéed Morel Mushrooms

Okay, now this morel recipe is the ultimate side dish. And great news; it’s so simple to make.

Using only three ingredients, these flavorful morels are ready in under 30 minutes.

Sauteed in butter and sea salt, these simple mushrooms make the perfect side to anything.

Serve them with lasagna, chicken, or even scrambled eggs!

3. Fried Morels & Lemon Crema

As much as I love calamari, something about these fried mushrooms just hits the spot. 

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

This recipe features fresh mushrooms dredged in seasoned flour, which are then pan-fried to perfection.

And unlike calamari which can become rubbery, morels keep their meaty bite.

Serve this hot and fresh with a tangy lemon crema dipping sauce. Yum!

4. Morel Mushroom Pasta in Parmesan Cream Sauce

Creamy pasta lovers, this is an extra special recipe just for you.

The best part about this creamy dream is that you can add as many morels as you want.

And when they’re covered in a rich and garlicky Parmesan sauce, you’ll want as many as you can get!

Serve with a sprinkling of fresh herbs and a kick of citrus.

5. Spring Garganelli With Morels And Peas

I could eat pasta every single day, especially when it’s topped with earthy mushrooms.

One thing I don’t love about mushrooms, though, is the color. That’s why I adore this bright spring dish.

Green peas give this morel mushroom dinner a lively look. Meanwhile, the creamy sauce is made even more delicious with tarragon and Marsala wine.

As if that’s not indulgent enough, this is best served with juicy lamb chops! 

6. Asparagus and Morel Pizza with Garlic Confit

This is the kind of pizza you can’t just have one slice of. Though come to think of it, that applies to all pizzas!

Still, this baby is so garlicky and cheesy that you’ll fight over the last piece.

This fancy-pants pizza uses garlic confit to pack a mighty punch.

Piled high with asparagus and morel mushrooms, this dish makes the most out of spring produce.

Use a pizza stone if you have one, and get ready to drool.

7. Crab Stuffed Morel Mushrooms

In my opinion, the best part of dinner is the appetizers. And these crab stuffed morels are right up my alley. 

Stuffing the funky cone-like shape of morels can be tricky.

So, here’s the secret: use scissors to cut open the side of each mushroom. Then, stuff them with the filling, and fold them over to resemble complete mushrooms.

Once baked, these stuffed morels are bound to be a hit with the family. So, grab a few while you can!

8. Spaghetti with Morels and Miso Brown Butter Sauce

This swoon-worthy pasta dish looks like it just came out of a high-end restaurant. 

The umami-flavored sauce pairs perfectly with the earthy, nutty morels. And it’s so hearty, you don’t need any added protein on the plate.

Prepare the brown butter sauce with white miso paste for a subtle sweet flavor. And try using whole wheat spaghetti for a super satisfying meal. 

9. Morel Game Burgers with Charred Scallion Butter

Dressed to impress, these morel and game burgers are stacked high with rich and meaty flavors.

Smokey and wild, this recipe heavily features the woodsy flavor of the mushrooms and the unique flavor of the game.

There’s also some garlic in the mix, making it even more tasty. This is sure to keep you full all day long. 

And let me tell you, these showstopper burgers will be a hit at your next barbeque.

10. Creamy Dried Morel Soup (Bisque)

Move over, cream of mushroom soup – there’s a new kid on the block. This morel soup is so rich and creamy with incredible depth of flavor.

Dried morel mushrooms are hydrated using chicken stock, giving them an even meatier taste. 

Want to know my favorite part of this recipe? A splash of sherry or brandy gives this soup the most delicious aroma. 

11. Morel Mushroom Quiche with Caramelized Red Onions

Mushrooms and eggs are always a match made in heaven. And when they’re paired with caramelized onions, it’s like falling into a savory dream. 

That said, this mushroom quiche makes for a delicious lunch or springtime dinner.

If you don’t feel like kneading the dough, store bought pie crust works just as well.

12. Ramp Pasta with Morel Ragu

Green homemade pasta topped with a savory morel ragu? Sign me up!

Interestingly, this recipe uses blanched ramp leaves instead of spinach to make the green strettine pasta. 

The combined flavors of the ramps, morels, and sweet butter scream spring. Serve this for dinner, and your family might just lick their plates clean.

13. Mushroom Tortellini

Mushroom tortellini are some of my all-time favorite types of pasta. I like to think of them as little packets of flavor!

Full of minced morel mushrooms, this recipe uses homemade pasta dough.

The tortellini are then boiled and topped with more mushrooms, peas, and green onion. 

With morels in the pasta and the sauce, there’s no escaping that earthy taste.

14. Leek & Morel Strata

Need an easy lunch? This leek and morel starta is the perfect prep-and-go lunchtime dish. 

Strata is a savory bread pudding that uses lots of eggs. It’s super filling and super tasty.

You’ll need dried morels and shiitakes for added umami oomph. And the leeks are a must-have for their light garlic and onion flavor.

This morel strata is so good, it’s guaranteed to become your new lunchtime go-to. 

15. Morel Mushroom and Quinoa Salad

Quinoa is a terrific, filling ingredient that soaks up flavor like a sponge. And this dish is bursting with earthy flavor.

Once the dried morels are rehydrated, the quinoa is cooked in the leftover liquid. This results in an incredible, rich flavor.

It’s earthy. It’s nutty. It’s like tasting the woodlands on a plate – in a good way, of course!

16. Asparagus and Morel Salad with Black Truffle Vinaigrette

If there’s a salad that steals the show, it’s this one.

An elegant black truffle vinaigrette soaks into hard-boiled eggs and earthy morels. Wow!

Serve this to your dinner guest, and they’ll forget all about the entree.

That said, this salad also makes for a terrific bring-to-work lunch. It’s perfect for a mid-week treat.

17. Pork Chops in Morel Mushroom Sauce

Full of flavor, these pork chops in mushroom sauce make for a comforting dish you can serve all year long. 

I love the combination of juicy pork and mushrooms, especially when it’s pan-fried to create a slight crust.

Serve the sauce on the side and watch as it all disappears.
