Puffball Parmesan fritters

This is a very simple fritter. I find the Parmesan cheese really compliments the mushroom flavor. You can make the fritter more study by dipping the puffball in seasoned flour before the egg and cheese. If you have dehydrated some puffballs previously you can mix the flour with a couple of tablespoons of puffball powder for extra mushroom flavor. The measurements in this recipe are not exact but the proportions are reasonable as it really depends on how much puffball you have . . .
