My favorite way to have them is in angle hair pasta

prepare the pasta al dente. (Slightly under cooked)

in a frying pan saute garlic, onions and the cleaned mushrooms in butter with a little splash of white wine. Just before the onions are done, add in the pasta.
Salt and pepper to taste. Simple and delicious.

I also like them in any stews or soups I make and they are great in an omlet.

I'd like to have some right now.

 I agree, they are great in pasta. Also can be good on pizza. They are good in most dishes that require mushrooms, in place of the store bought mushrooms.

 My personal favorite is saute them in butter with asparagus until they are carmelized. They make a good side dish like this. Or to add to pasta, also saute in a diced onion, some garlic, a couple diced sweet or mild peppers and a little salt a pepper. I also add some small leaf spinach and a little olive oil when the rest of the stuff is almost all the way cooked. I'd say some fresh basil could be added as well. Then pour it over the cooked pasta.

 I like Weekend_sawyer's recipe with the wine added, I will have to give it a try  :)

I have been out three time over a few weeks and have a total of zero.  Not hearing of a bunch being found either.  Around here it is usually at the end of mushrooms around may first.  I wonder if that will be extended since it stayed so cold so much longer this spring?  I know my blooms on things are from two weeks to a month behind last year.  My uncle has found three little ones and mom has found one little ones and they have trees to check each year.  So far so bad.

We enjoy them several ways. My favorite is to rinse and split them in half, allowing them to soak in salt water for 1-2 days in the refrigerator to get all the dirt and critters out of them. Rinse, then sauté them on the stovetop in a cast iron skillet with salted butter and plenty of fresh crushed garlic. Add some finely chopped onion and season. You'll want to get things caramelized but don't allow all of the moisture to evaporate off as you want to retaining some of the juices. then spoon them over a nice rare - medium rare ribeye or deer steak. Their flavor is unbelievable and that juice will make your steak amazing. 

Another common method is to split in half and soak in salt water. Rinse and pat dry. Dip in an egg wash and beer or milk mixture and bread them with finely ground cracker crumbs. (you can experiment with what crackers you want to use) Fry them in salted butter in a cast iron skillet until golden brown.

 I haven't been finding as many as usual either, I think here they are probably just about done. I've found probably 60 morels or so where I normally would have found close to 100. Strange year for them, they have been pretty much by them selves instead of finding several grouped together. We had a couple hard overnight freezes here after they started fruiting so that may have set them back some. That's my guess anyway. Still found a pretty good batch overall though.

I found my first one at home today as I walked up the back walk there it stood . It was a four inch spike I walked around the house always found a number of them but not today. I think we need a shower of rain but the farmers would shot me if they heard me say that  :D.

Found one yesterday from the truck while driving lease road. It covered most of my palm. Then walking around one of my station fences today I found two more about the same size. That is it so far this year. All the ash trees we used to find them under are dead and am having to find new spots

I think they're about done for the year in my area (southern Mo). I ended up finding one more prety good batch and I think that'll be all on my place.

Nice woodcutter.
I ended up watching the grandkids for the last four days and the closest I got to a mushroom was one afternoon taking the kids fishing and I was close to the woods but too busy to enjoy it.  Dad finaly found a grand total of 5 two days ago.  I am free tomorrow but have a feeling it is over.  I will probly go out but have no expectations.  All I can say is thanks for the pictures.
Cheers

 It would certainly be worth looking, there may be a few more pop up here and there but I'd say they are about done or will be very soon.

I did do a little looking today but did no finding.  No pictures from me coming.  Ended up working on a backhoe tire and I am done for the year .  I did talk to my uncle and he did find another 35 or so.  He did not share with me.  First year in probly 30 plus years that I did not even get a taste.  I knew having a good deer season would come back to haunt me somehow.
