Have you seen those large white puff ball mushrooms growing – most of the time they can easily be mistaken for a volleyball 🙂 The giant puffball is a whitish, Styrofoam-like globe as small as a softball or as large as a beach ball, with short, root-like mycelial (fungal) fibers connecting it to the ground. It’s a little known fact that puffballs are edible mushrooms – as long as they are completely white the whole way though. And with no poisonous look-alikes, they are ideal for beginner mushroom hunters!
- Take your clean puffball, slice about 1/2 inch thick (you'll be sure its all white too!)
- Dip the slices of puffball in beaten egg then bread with parmesan cheese then pan fry in lard over medium heat till golden brown, drain on a paper towel lined plate.
- Serve with Marinara Sauce & Cheese
