"These mushrooms are a treasure of the woods hunted by many in the early spring here in Missouri. Simple and quick to fry and enjoy. Finding these can be very hard to find in the woods but well worth the work once you get a mess of them to eat."

fresh morel mushrooms - dirt gently brushed off and mushrooms halved lengthwise
salt to taste
Morels are so packed with flavor, they don't need a bunch of help otherwise. This is the way we always fix them, (except slight difference) I deep fry in 350 oil. Some people I know dips them in beaten egg and fine cracker crumbs. I have fried in butter, but I like the results with oil. Could always drizzle a bit of melted butter over them after frying, if desired. The most I've ever found is enough to fill a grocery sack. If you've found some I'm jealous.
We dip ours in egg first, then flour, but just dipping in flour is good, too. It's hard to do it wrong! This recipe is sure making me want some!
Can't go wrong using this method.
