    Used to pick them puffballs right outa my uncle's backyard, years ago.
    He thought they might be poisonous until I showed him some pictures
    from my botany textbook. Used to deep fry them with an egg/milk wash
    after initial flouring followed by a second dredging in flour. Yeah, the
    butter saute or sweat might be a better way to bring out the flavor.
    But we were into the crunchy breading, too. Good Times!

    Now that is good eating. My mama always fries some up puts them in the freezer for me. When I get a chance to go home, she gets them all ready for me. Gotta love Mom!
