Deep-Fried Morel Mushrooms

Deep-Fried Morel Mushrooms
  • 20 large fresh morel mushrooms
  • Breading Mix:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Italian cracker crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • vegetable oil for frying


  1. Place morels in a large bowl of warm salted water and leave to soak, about 30 minutes. Drain.
  2. Combine flour, cracker crumbs, paprika, black pepper, cayenne pepper, oregano, thyme, and cumin in a large resealable plastic bag to make breading mix.
  3. Whisk milk and egg together in a small bowl.
  4. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Dip mushrooms, a few at a time, into milk mixture. Toss in breading mix until coated; shake off excess.
  6. Fry breaded morels in the hot oil, working in batches, until dark brown and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
