  1. Clean the mushrooms carefully with a damp paper towel or a soft mushroom brush. Cut large mushrooms in half.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. While the oil is heating, beat the eggs and milk in a shallow bowl. Coat the mushrooms in the egg and milk mixture, then toss them in the cracker crumbs. Carefully place the coated mushrooms in the heated oil. The mushrooms will cook quickly. Cook the mushrooms until they are golden brown on the bottom, then flip them over to brown the other side.
  3. When the mushrooms are evenly browned, remove them from the pan to drain on a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

I like to cook my morels this way but in butter instead of oil. It gives the mushrooms much more flavor.

Interesting. Now, I was always led to believe that cooking morels in anything but butter is a bit sacrilegious. However, I was curious. I fried a few in oil and after trying them, fried the rest...

As a child i was raised on morels and an addiction to thier special unique flavor was created that I can never get away from. my parents and i would literally collect large grocery bags of them...

Definitely soak in salt water and Definitely fry in butter. Good Stuff~

This was my recipe, I like the butter idea too. Thanks

Good recipe, crispy & tasty. However, I still prefer just shaking them gently in a bag with flour and a little salt & pepper, then frying them in bacon grease. Yummm

Good recipe but butter a must! I use pancake batter to coat, adds to the great morel flavor. No egg mixture. My husband likes them cooked longer, almost crispy like chips. I like them fried gold...
