Carla's Story

I wait for the season each year. Nothing like them. When they're gone they're gone- till the next year. The anticipation is as good as the mushrooms!

Ingredients

5-6
morel mushrooms per serving
2 c
white or yellow corn meal
1 Tbsp
granulated sugar
1 pinch
salt
1 pinch
cracked ground pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat cooking oil in skillet over medium heat until pinch of flour sizzles.

Make sure morels are clean and split in half lengthwise.


Reserve in cold water.
2
Mix cornmeal, sugar, salt and pepper together in large bowl.

Carefully bread each mushroom half (like breading chicken)
3
Fry in small batches. About 6 mushrooms per serving. Can be held on tray in warm oven until all are fried.

Enjoy!
