Morel Po Boy






Prepare the Morels:

Slice the mushrooms in half lengthwise and soak them in lightly salted water for about 20 minutes. Drain and dry them on paper towels.


Place three bowls on the counter. Fill the first with flour, the second with buttermilk and the third with flour again. Season each with salt and pepper. Bread the Morels by dredging them in flour, then buttermilk and then flour again.


Place the morels on a baking sheet and refrigerate for about 15 minutes before frying. This will help the batter stick to the mushrooms. Dust mushrooms in flour again just before frying.


Fry the morels:

In 350 degree oil that is at least 3 inches deep. When the morels float and turn golden brown, remove them from the hot oil and drain on paper towels.


Green Onion / Scallion Mayonnaise (This recipe is 1/2 of what I made in the video)

Place green onions in the food processor with the lemon juice, salt, pepper, hot sauce, worcestershire sauce, egg yolk. Turn on the food processor, with the motor running, slowly add olive oil until the mixture becomes thick like mayonnaise.


* Store Scallion Mayo in the fridge for up to a week to use in other recipes, such as potato salad


To Serve:

Cut a loaf of French bread in half lengthwise and spread generously with scallion mayo. Load the morels onto the bread... WOOF!

  • PROCESS: Cut two slices of bread on an angle about 1/2 inch thick using a serrated knife. Spread with butter or mayonnaise on the two outside pieces. Heat a frying pan to about 350 degrees. Drop the first slice of bread, butter or mayo side down, top with Swiss cheese. Drop the second slice of bread on the grill and top with mustard (or pesto) and cheddar cheese. Top with two slices of cooked bacon and two slices of grilled tomato. Flip the first slice swiss cheese) onto the side with tomatoes. Cover with a lid to keep the steam in and help the cheese melt. Serve with Tomato Basil Soup (see recipe in soup chapter) * Try mayonnaise instead of butter when grilling grilled cheese sandwiches, it caramelized beautifully! * Texas Toast also works great for grilled cheese sandwiches. * Thin white bread and American cheese are not cool... INGREDIENTS: Recipe makes ONE Sandwich: 2 slices Swiss cheese 2 slices cheddar cheese French, Italian or artisan bread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise or butter 1 tablespoon mustard or pesto 2 slices cooked bacon 2 slices grilled tomato
  • PROCESS: Cook the Corned Beef: Remove corned beef from the package, place in a large pan or dutch oven cover with water. Add the little seasoning package, turn heat to high, bring to a boil. Turn the heat down so the water stays at simmer, but do not allow it to boil. Cover with a lid and cook "low and slow" for 2-3 hours. The corned beef should be very tender and almost falling apart. Remove from water carefully and cool to room temperature. Build the Open Faced Reubens: Toast rye bread in the toaster or oven. Spread with Dijon mustard. Cut bread slices in half and shingle (4 half slices per reuben) in a baking pan. Slice the cooked corned beef thin and stack it on the rye bread, (cover the bread). Top with sauerkraut and slices of Swiss cheese. Bake in a 400-degree oven until golden brown. Serve with Russian dressing. Russian Dressing: Combine mayonnaise, chili sauce, horseradish, lemon juice, dijon mustard and grated onion in a bowl. Mix well. INGREDIENTS: Recipe makes 2 Reubens 3.5 lbs raw corned beef brisket 8 slices pumpernickel rye bread Dijon mustard 2 cups sauerkraut 12 slices Swiss cheese Russian Dressing 1 cup mayonnaise ½ cup chili sauce 1 tablespoon horseradish 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon onion, grated 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • PROCESS: Cheese Stuffing: Place mozzarella cheese, sun dried tomatoes, chopped garlic, fresh basil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix all the ingredients together then add a few small chunks of cream cheese. The cream cheese will hold everything together so the cheese forms a ball and stays where you put it. To stuff the burger: Place 1/4 of a pound of ground beef on top a piece of plastic wrap. Press until it forms a large circle. The plastic wrap will keep the hamburger from sticking to the counter or cutting board. Top the burger with a chunk of cheese stuffing. Top that with another 1/4 pound of burger. Press the sides to seal in the filling. Repeat this process with remaining burgers. Heat a skillet or grill to medium high and brown the burger on both sides. Top with a slice of tomato, two leaves of fresh basil and a slice of mozzarella. Cover the burgers until the cheese melts. Serve on a toasted bun. See recipe for Portobello Fries in Sides & Vegetables Chapter INGREDIENTS: Recipe makes 4 Burgers: Cheese Filling: 1 cup mozzarella cheese 3 tablespoons sun dried tomatoes 1 tablespoon chopped garlic 4 tablespoons fresh basil chiffonade 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 2 tablespoons cream cheese 2 pounds ground beef 4 - slices of tomato 4 slices mozzarella 8 fresh basil leaves 4 burger buns
