Decades ago, I read about people that harvest large puffballs and slice them like bread, then fry them up like french toast.
I'm not a mushroom eater of any kind, partly because I know how the store-bought ones are grown.  A former co-worker owned so woods and regularly found puffballs, morels, etc. that he ans his wife would use in a variety of dishes.

Saw the first puffball of the season tonight across from my mailbox. It was only about the size of a softball. Might be soccer ball size by morning. Haven't harvested any yet.
