Morel Recipe Challenge 2011 – The Recipes!


These bloggers slaved away over hot ovens, stoves, and other cooking apparatuses to bring you a collection of new morel hors d’oeuvre recipes. Here are their creations!

All of the below recipes were made with dried morel mushrooms, but could be adapted to use fresh morels (most will likely work with frozen morels too). Because this was a recipe challenge, there needed to be goodies at the end: three lucky bloggers received 2lbs of fresh morel mushrooms each! Here’s how:

  1. One blogger was picked by a challenger vote and was deemed the 3rd Annual Morel Recipe Challenge Champion
  2. The Champion selected a second challenger of their choice
  3. A third blogger (surprise!) was picked via a reader poll
