Fried Morel Mushrooms

Ingredients

  • Morel Mushrooms
  • 2 or 3 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 2 cups flour
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Instructions

  1. After fresh mushrooms have soaked in salt water for at least a day, cut the morel mushrooms into halves-if they're large mushrooms you have to cut them into fourths.

    Put eggs into a mixing bowl and whip them with a fork-as if you were going to make scrambled eggs. Start heating the oil on medium heat or 250 degrees in a large skillet or an electric skillet (You may also use a fryer if you have one).

    You may need more than the 1 cup of oil to fry the mushrooms depending on how many mushrooms you will be cooking. Place the mushrooms into the eggs-just long enough to coat them lightly. Then put them in a gallon size ziploc baggie with the flour and shake gently. After the mushrooms are covered with flour place them in the skillet(salt and pepper to taste) and cook until golden brown. Another way of telling if they're done is if the fork goes through the mushroom easy.
