Morel Mushrooms are an edible wild mushroom that is truly a Spring treat. They only pop up for a few weeks every Spring and are incredibly difficult to find, making their slight woodsy flavor all the more desirable. You may be able to find them in a food co-op store but you are going to pay as much as $50/pound, so grab a friend and search the woods!
Morels taste wonderful with a variety of foods and are great mixed with eggs and other early spring vegetables, like fiddlehead ferns and asparagus.
A quick scrambled egg dish of morels and asparagus is delicious and easy, but they look more beautiful featured in a frittata.

If you are starting with dried morel mushrooms make sure you soak them in water first.
Mix up your eggs and pour into a single serving frying pan.Slowly add the morels, asparagus and cheese to the eggs, in a pattern that highlights their beauty. Cover pan and let sit until cooked through.
Serve warm. Enjoy your Spring!
