I was at a friend's house the other night and they had picked up a half pound of Blonde Morel Mushrooms at a local farmers market. They were flown in from Oregon. What a great find! They also had picked up a nice selection of root vegetables and some bone in rib eyes. (Sorry about the poor quality of the photos. They were taken with my phone.)

Half Pound of Morel Mushrooms


She first cut them in half and rinsed them under cold water. This gets rid of dirt and bugs that may be lodged in the holes.

Preparing Morel Mushrooms


She whisked together an egg and 1 cup of milk.

Whisked Egg and Milk


After placing the morels in the egg milk mixture she dredged them in flour that had a bit of salt and pepper added to it.

Some butter melting in the pan.

Over medium heat she placed the breaded Morels in the butter. It only took a couple of minutes per side to cook them.

If you have never had Morel Mushrooms, I strongly recommend you try them. They are by far my favorite mushroom.
