haha, no they don't go well with tators! haha Actually I don't eat them, can't stand ANY mushrooms, but the in-laws and my wife love them to death. These type of mushrooms are safe to eat- many types aren't however. Typically they are around 4 inches tall, but I've seen some get 8-10 inches some years. They always come up during turkey season (right around April 18-24) every year. We find them alot around sycamore trees for some reason. Three years ago we found probably 2 five gallon buckets full, but most years you get just about 1/4 that. This was a down year for them. As far as I know, no one knows how they grow or where exactly they are going to grow each year. Many people have tried to "grow" their own version of the morel, but it can't be done.
