Featured Pinch Tips Video
- all the wild morel mushrooms you can find!
- 1/2 c
- 1 c
- salt and pepper to taste
- approximately 3/4 cup vegetable oil
2Whisk egg and milk together in a medium sized bowl and add some salt and pepper, stir well.
3Heat a skillet with around 1/2" of vegetable oil on medium high heat.
4Place approximately 1 cup of flour in a medium sized bowl (depending on how many mushrooms you found, use more or less flour...if its less then I'm sorry about your luck). Lightly salt and pepper the flour and mix together.
5Drain the soaking mushrooms well, then place a few at a time first in the egg mixture, then in the flour mixture and coat well.
6The oil is ready when you drop a bit of mushroom in the pan and it sizzles to the top. Add your coated mushrooms to the pan and cook for around 2-3 minutes each side, until they are a light, crispy brown. Drain on a paper towel and serve with your favorite dipping sauces (see Holly's Horseradish Sauce and Kickin' Ketchup Horsey Sauce recipes below). Enjoy!
