Crispy Mushroom Fry - King of Morel Recipes
From Superior Seasons
<p>This is one of the simplest morel recipes going, and a great way to enjoy them. Many people make this recipe with flour, but I’ve used panko breadcrumbs to mix it up and make ’em extra crunchy.</p> <p>Amounts of morels aren’t listed. Just keep beating eggs and adding more butter to the skillet until the mushrooms are gone, which will be sooner than you want!</p>Source: Mushroom-appreciation.com (Entered by Kevin Belluz)
Serves: Not enough!
Step by Step Instructions
- Clean the morels. The point is to remove all dirt and bugs without making them too wet. Soggy morels result in a heartbreak not cured by store-bought mushrooms. You can brush them, or use a light rinse and pat dry. In a large bowl, roll the morels in the beaten eggs. Make sure they're fully covered. In a separate bowl mix together the flour/breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper. Dip the egg-covered morels in the flour/breadcrumbs, making sure all surfaces of the mushrooms are covered with the crumbs.
- Melt the butter in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Fry the morels until they are brown and crispy on all sides. It's best to do this in small batches, rather than overcrowding your skillet.
- Repeat until you're so full that you can't take it anymore, or until you run out of mushrooms.
