Ingredients

1/4 tsp
*cayenne pepper
1 tsp
paprika
1/2 tsp
black pepper
1/4 tsp
dried oregano
1/8 tsp
dried thyme
1/8 tsp
cumin
1/2 c
flour
1/2 c
italian cracker crumbs

***I MAKE UP 10 BATCHES OF THE DRY INGREDIENTS & KEEP IN GALLON ZIPLOCK BAG IN THE FREEZER

1 large
egg
1 1/2 c
milk
morel mushrooms

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut morels in half lengthwise & place in warm salt water to soak. This not only cleans & removes bugs & sand, but reconstitutes any that have dried some.
2
Mix all dry ingredients in large ziplock bag. Set aside.
3
Mix egg & milk in another bowl.
4
Take mushrooms out of water a few at a time & dip in egg mix, then in dry mix.
5
Shake off excess & drop in deep fryer that the oil is heated to about 325°- 350° or high heat. Fry on one side until dark, then flip & finish frying the other side.
6
Note: If you have a batter pro bowl for breading, that's what I use.
7
Drain on paper towel. They should be crisp & stay crisp.
8
* I recommend adding a little more cayenne if you like the zip in it. I can't do real hot any more. It's great either way.
