How to Make PEGGI'S DEEP FRIED MOREL MUSHROOMS

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.
