How To Make Fried Morel
Show off your mushroom cuisine game by cooking up a mouth-watering batch of fried morel! Serve this dish by itself or with some cold beer.
Slice large morels in half lengthwise and keep small ones whole. Drop the mushrooms into a bowl of cool water and shake them around a bit. Remove from the water and pat dry with paper towels.
Put the flour and all the seasonings in a bowl. Whisk together the milk and eggs in another bowl.
Pour enough oil, or lard or butter, into a large sauté pan to come up about 1/2 inch. You are shallow-frying your morels, like when you fry chicken. Heat this to at least 325°F to 350°F.
As the oil is heating, dust the morels in the seasoned flour. When the oil is hot, dip enough morels to fit into your sauté pan, in one layer without touching each other, into the egg wash. Then, into the flour once more.
Shake off the excess flour and fry. Fry the morels for at least 3 to 4 minutes per side, adjusting the heat so they don't burn.
When done, move the morels to a paper towel to drain. If you have a lot of morels to fry, put the paper towel in a baking sheet and set that in the oven set to "warm."
Serve your morels with lemon wedges and lots of beer.
