Recipe of the Week: Pan Fried Morel Mushrooms (Indiana Truffles)

indiana truffles

Zach and I have never had morel mushrooms before. So when we saw bags of morels for sale at the grocery store, we were so tempted to try some we splurged on the smallest bag they had. The lady behind the counter told us morel mushrooms are also called "Indiana truffles." I was certain anything called a truffle can only be delicious.

Here's how we prepped our mushrooms ...

1/2 lb morel mushrooms, soak in salt water to get rid of debris and bugs and then slice lengthwise
1/4 cup rice flour
1/4 cup all purpose flour
a pinch of paprika
1 egg, gently beaten
2 tbsp coconut oil
salt and pepper, to taste

In a shallow bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
Dip mushrooms in egg, then coat with flour mixture. Tap off excess.
Heat oil in skillet.
Pan fry mushrooms until golden brown and the flour coating is crisp, about 5-8 minutes.
Blot off excess grease on a paper towel.
