Sure, I have morels

I had several friends tag me in a meme this weekend that said, "I hunt for mushrooms because I have no morels." When it's morel season, the hubby, kids and me spend a lot of time in the woods. This past weekend's forays paid off, but hours of hiking in Mountain Goat territory have my muscles crying out today. As anyone who has enjoyed a morel-topped steak can attest, the pain is so, so worth it. My facebook feed was full of pictures of my friends' mushrooming hauls. It's shaping up to be a good season.

Question: Have you picked morels? Have a favorite recipe?
