Baked Cheese-garlic Morels

Don’t get me wrong, morels cooked in butter are tough to beat. But this one might do it.  Battered and baked in garlic butter, this morel dish is an excellent side for  a nice juicy ribeye, served with some wild asparagus. Don’t forget to sautée a few of the morels in butter to top the steak. Enjoy!
