If you are new to morel mushrooms, here’s a few posts to read:
The very first time I ever ate a Morel Mushroom it was in Scrambled Eggs. Which sounds amazingly strange, right?!
If you HATE stories before a recipe feel free to scroll ahead, but I’ll keep this short. Ray and I met at work. It was 2001 Ray was a service technician and I was just out of college with my first ‘real’ job working as a graphic designer.
I started at my new job in January, Ray and I become work-friends quickly then going on our first date on April 1st. The office had a “pig out day” where everyone brought in a covered dish and Ray brought in a crockpot filled with scrambled eggs and morel mushrooms, as his contribution.
If you’re a mushroom lover and have had Morel Mushrooms then you know how it was love at first bite.
A couple weeks later, Ray took me on our first day-date foraging for Wild Morel Mushrooms. Cutely he previewed the perfect spot and knew where the mushrooms were already but when he took me there HE counldn’t find them, but I did! I solidified myself as a suitable partner when I was quickly able to find the elusive morels on my first foraging trip with him.
It’s hard to believe that now (in 2023) Ray and I have been foraging for 22 years. And together we’ve learned so many more wild edible mushrooms, becoming extremely knowledge foragers.
PLUS I now have this blog where I’ve been sharing my own personal Morel Mushroom Recipes (and other wild mushroom recipes) that go far beyond this simple, yet delicious, scrambled eggs and morel mushrooms recipe that started my wild mushroom obsession!
Scrambled Eggs with Morel Mushroom Recipe Ingredients
You only need 3 ingredients when making these scrambled eggs with morel mushrooms:
- Morel Mushrooms (learn How to Clean and Store Morel Mushrooms)
Plus salt & pepper but those technically aren’t “ingredients” but still worth noting.
How to make Scrambled Eggs with Morel Mushrooms
Making scrambled eggs and more mushrooms is extremely easy but I have a few tricks to share making this recipe post worth reading.
Of course you want to start out with clean morel mushrooms, coarsely chopped. Give them a saute in butter with a sprinkle of salt. Cook until the mushrooms have released their water and it’s evaporated, maybe 2-3 minutes depending on how many mushrooms you are cooking.
For one single serving, I use 1/2 a cup of chopped morels to 3 large eggs.
And then you will need a couple very well beaten eggs, I like to add a splash of water along with salt and pepper into them before cooking, mix well.
When you are cooking with safe & healthy cookware (aka not teflon non-stick coated) such as stainless steel, cast iron or in this case my most favorite Hex Clad Skillet – you want to follow a couple basic cooking guidelines when cooking eggs.
If you have read my How to Make Scrambled Eggs in a Stainless Steel Skillet that Don’t Stick! post then you already know what I’m about to say. To newbies, you always need to start with a HOT PAN then add cold fat, then add cold food into the hot pan with hot fat to make ANY skillet non-stick. Specifically in this case for making the best fluffy, ribbony scrambled eggs.
Are Hexclad pans worth the investment? Absolutely. I am 100% in LOVE with them and highly recommend them over all of our other cookware. We have THIS HexClad 3 skillet set with lids.
You can scramble you eggs directly into the skillet WITH the morels but I personally prefer to remove the mushrooms then scramble my eggs separately, folding the morels in at the end. Salt and pepper to taste.
What to serve with Scrambled Eggs with Morel Mushrooms
Everything is better with bacon, including this morel mushroom breakfast recipe. But my homemade country sausage or ham would be delicious too! I like to sprinkle a garnish of sliced scallions (or wild ramp greens) on top.
They simple morel mushroom recipe can be enjoyed for any mea of the day; breakfast, lunch or Dinner. But for us it’s our tradition to make them scrambled eggs and morels for breakfast the day after we pick the first black morels of the year.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and please share it with your mushroom loving friends!
