mockery and crockery


I cant believe its not all kinds of things. I cant believe this is not compound truffle butter but instead its morels.


I cant believe these are not deviled eggs but they are better! Soft scrambled eggs with mock truffle butter.


Mock truffle butter? Why not just call it like it is - its morel margarine!* (thats an asterisk) This "compound butter," like all compound butters, matured and the flavor deepened as it sat wrapped in plastic wrap in the fridge (well actually the freezer so I could make the shape) - it is getting better and better.


Why blow the mystique if it tastes like truffle butter then according to how that adage goes - it must be truffle butter. This is one of the many simple things I will be making with dried morel mushrooms for MarxFoods, I am also entering this into 5-Star Foodies Makeover - Compound butter.

Happy Holidays Everyone!


* this was all butter - I lied. reference where I said 'margarine'

Sounds delicious! I am loving the look of those eggs.

wow, awesome idea! I've got morels from MarxFoods as well and if I have some leftover after I make my dish, I'll be making this butter for sure. Thanks so much for sending it in for the 5 Star Makeover!

And thus the morel spree begins. I'm excited to see that trout.

I have to visit you sometime so that I taste your food!

Here is how I critique myself -
1) why is the egg shell so jaggy
2) that yellow doesnt seem right - too greeny/blue or something
3 composition must have not been your first idea
4) what? no white eggs?

Somehow I want eggs and butter in the same dish right now. Does that sound crazy?

Ciao Chow Linda said...

Great idea to make that compound butter with morels. Can you use dried morels?

Vickie said...

Love that you did eggs for an Easter post - timely and delicious looking. I'll bet that compound butter would be exquisite on a hot ribeye steak!

Martha said...

I like making compound butters but after using them once, I forget about them and find them hidden in the freezer!
