Batter Dipped Morels

Morels are wild mushrooms that only come around one time a year. If you love mushrooms and are lucky enough to find any of these, you are in for a treat.
You can fix morels in many ways. This is the way my dad always made them and they are pretty yummy.

You will need a large skillet.


Ingredients:

Morels, cleaned and sliced in half- enough for a nice batch

A stick of butter for frying the morels


BATTER-

1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg


In a bowl, beat all the batter ingredients until smooth.

Set the skillet on medium high heat and put in the butter to melt.
When the butter is melted and hot, dip the morel halves into the batter and let excess batter drip off. The morels should sizzle when put in pan or the butter isn't hot enough.
Add the morels to the skillet.
Fry for a couple minutes until golden. Turn over and cook on the other side.

  1. TOO BAD THERE IS SUCH A SHORT WINDOW ON THESE. I COULD EAT THEM EVERY DAY! HOPEFULLY WE WILL GET SOME IDEAL SPRING WEATHER NEXT YEAR SO WE CAN FIND MANY POUNDS! THE LAST FEW SPRINGS HAVE BEEN LESS THAN IDEAL.
