Stuffing Morels

Stuffing morels can present a challenge because they must be eaten well-cooked to prevent being poisoned. Raw morels are fragile to handle and even more so when cooked. To stuff morels use a pastry bag with a plain tip. Do not fill excessively because the morels may break, since the stuffing usually expands while cooking. Plug the hole after filling with a piece of bread to prevent oozing of the filling. Once they are stuffed they can be grilled. Just be sure to cook them thoroughly. Even undercooked morels can make people sick.
