Dip each cleaned & halved mushroom in beaten egg then in the breading mix.
Arrange breaded mushrooms in a single layer on a plate or tray. Place in the freezer for a minimum 30 minutes* prior to frying.
Preheat Lard to 340 degrees, while mushrooms are chilling. Line a plate with paper towel.
Take mushrooms straight from the freezer and place in the preheated oil. Fry for roughly 2 minutes or until lightly brown.
Drain breaded mushrooms on a paper plate lined with a paper towel and season with sea salt. Enjoy while still warm.
* When we find an abundance of Morels, we will bread and freeze them to enjoy later in the year. They will keep frozen for roughly 8 months. We allow them to freeze on sheet pans then transfer them to plastic zip top bags for long term freezer storage. Just take the frozen mushrooms out of the bag and fry anytime for a spring treat!
