A Shortcut to Mushrooms

Finally, there is a fungus amongus.

We went out today for about two hours, and came back with just over two pounds of morels. We had a lot of rain over the weekend, and that's all it took to make the mushrooms pop. Steva absolutely loves mushroom hunting, and I have to say it is a lot of fun when you find mushrooms.
So tomorrow night, we'll have fried mushrooms. Here is the recipe, I like to keep it simple. No frills are necessary. Adjust the ingredients according to how many mushrooms you have:

Eggs, beaten
Flour
Butter
Salt

Pre-heat a cast iron skillet. Add plenty of butter, and wait until it is all melted. Don't allow butter to burn.
Cut mushrooms in half. Dip halved mushrooms in the beaten egg. Then dip them in flour. Fry them in the butter until golden brown. Turn only once. Remove to a rack to drain. Sprinkle with salt.
You will be tempted to eat large quantities, but do not eat too many, or you will regret it.
