Puffball (Lycoperdon Giganteum)

An edible fungus that grows in Britain and Northern Europe. Puffballs can grow up to the size of a football, but medium-sized specimens are the best.

They are best when sliced, then dipped in beaten egg and breadcrumbs and fried in butter. They are also a pleasant addition to a salad, if sliced raw.
