Well I went shroom hunting today and I was really getting weirded out about being in the fields so I called it a day early but not before I found this

A huge puffball.
Well the largest one I've ever found that wasn't already brown or black inside. It was found in a open pasture in relatively short grass.

Aren't these supposed to be tasty?

If so how are they best cooked?

It's a meadow muffin, I find those guys all the time.

They aren't strong flavored. Most people I know who like them like to slice them thick (like bread), then coat them with bread crumbs and fry them.

This year at the Colorado Mycological Society's annual Mushroom Fair we had three giant puffballs brought in. All three were bigger than a movie star's head. One of them was still white all the way through - we sliced it open at the end of the fair just to see.

Happy mushrooming!

Thanks for the cooking tip. That sounds like the way to go for me. I love fried mushrooms.

they're pretty much like tofu. They take up flavor from whatever you cooked them in.

Yeah, I got to try it this morning for breakfast but I screwed up and burnt the slices so it wasn't all that tasty. I turned my head for a few minutes and forgot what I was doing and before I knew it, it was too late. I ended up only trying a small piece. I hope that I can find another big one like that to try again. I found two small ones about the size of a large marble today so I'm going to hit those up tomorrow morning.
