DNR offers two quick morel mushroom recipes


News Release

BLOOMINGTON — The latest online video in the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife’s CookIN Gone Wild series highlights morel mushrooms — a delicacy in Indiana that many people hunt for every spring.

“We wanted to give a different spin on CookIN Gone Wild by showcasing some of Indiana’s wild edibles and not just wild game such as venison or duck,” said Michelle Cain, wildlife information specialist. “These two recipes give a couple of exciting new ways for people to enjoy morels.”

The easy recipes add gourmet flair to normal fried or sautéed morels.

The morel mushroom cream sauce is versatile and great on any meat or pasta. The morel stuffed bacon cups with herbed goat cheese look and taste great and are a great appetizer for guests.
