Morel Mushrooms are here at the Pine Near!
There are numerous ways to cut, prepare and eat Morel Mushrooms however the "King of Morel Recipes" is the Crispy Mushroom Fry.
Prepping your mushrooms is very important, soak the Morels in saltwater for one hour to kill any insects and cleanse. Refrigerate until ready for use.
Morels, sliced in half length wise
4 eggs; beaten
2 Cups flour (bread crumbs or panko bread crumbs if you want them extra crispy)
2 Tablespoons of butter
Salt and Pepper to taste
In a large bowl, roll the sliced Morels in butter until fully covered
In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients (flour or bread crumbs and your salt and pepper to taste).
Dip the egg covered Morels in the flour or bread crumbs, make sure every surface of the mushroom is covered.
In a large skillet melt the butter on Medium-High heat, fry the Morels until brown and crispy on all sides. It's best to fry the Morels in small batches to ensure you don't over crowd your skillet and that the mushrooms are cooked thoroughly.
Repeat this process until your so full, you can't take another bite or until all Morels are gone.
Although this recipe doesn't list the exact amount of Morels to use; just adjust the recipe by adding more eggs and butter until the all the Morels are gone; which will be much sooner than you want!
