It's a Land Fish Fry!

Well, the season is finally here! And three weeks early, which is great, because I was getting very impatient. I got a pretty good size harvest the other day, enough for one good serving!
Morels are a really interesting mushroom to eat. Even people who aren't fans of regular mushrooms seem to like these! They taste like a very mild seafood, and have a little bit of a spongy texture. In fact, around this area, they are often called "Dry Land Fish". You can use them in pretty much any recipe that calls for mushrooms, but the two most often cooked I decided to cook up and share with everyone this evening; Fried and Sauteed!
I love them sauteed the best, because the flavor really pops. But, if you are like a lot of 'mushroom haters' its a texture issue, so for those of you who can't get past the texture, I recommend frying them.
I tend to be the cook who just 'wings' it, and doesn't really measure anything, so I apologize in advance for no 'written' recipe. That, and its not really hard to just eyeball the mix.
First, lets see what we need for tonight! About a cup or two of milk, two eggs, about a stick of butter, salt, pepper, and coating. For the coating you can use a couple of things. I prefer crushed corn flake mix (you can buy it at your grocery ready to go). You can use a fish fry batter, crushed up crackers, or, if your desperate for a mix 'shake and bake' can work too. If you use the cornflakes, add some salt and pepper, and thats it!
And now, we are ready to go!!!

So, thats about it! Then feast away! Can't wait to get out and get some more! So...until next time! Happy Hunting!!
