Fried Morels

Every spring my Dad goes hunting for these weird little guys. Around here they are usually called dry land fish for whatever reason.They look kind of like a sponge but taste great!


Morels, soaked and rinsed, split in half lengthwise

1 cup flour

2 tbsp cornmeal

1 egg

splash of milk

salt and pepper

veg oil


Heat  about 1/2 cup oil in large skillet.  Whisk together egg and milk. In shallow dish, combine flour, cornmeal, salt, and pepper. Dip each morel in egg/milk then dredge in flour mixture.  Add to oil. Dont overcrowd the pan. Let them fry until they are golden brown on each side, about 8-10 mins. Drain on paper towels and season with salt and pepper.

Before I fried them…Told ya they look weird!


Here they are after they were fried!! Makes my mouth water!!!
