Easy Deep-Fried Mushroom Caps

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 1 min

You can use any amounts of flour, bread crumbs and seasonings, depending on how many mushroom caps you are making. You can use whatever seasoning you prefer, garlic salt is good to use in place of the seasoning salt and garlic powder. Prepare as many mushrooms as you like. Make certain to use only FINE DRY bread crumbs, if you cannot find any fine bread crumbs, process the crumbs on the food processor until fine, soft bread crumbs will not hold on the caps.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dip the mushroom caps in flour, then in beaten egg.
  2. Roll in fine bread crumbs.
  3. Place on a plate and lightly season with salt and garlic powder.
  4. Heat oil in a large frypan and deep-fry the coated mushroom caps in hot oil for about 1 minute, or golden brown on the outside.
  5. Delicious!

These were great! I read so many different variations of how to do these and this is the one I picked. Minimal ingredients I already had and a very quick appetizer. I like things a bit zesty though so I added garlic powder and cayenne pepper to the breadcrumbs and it still wasn't enough for me so I spiced em up after they came out of deepfryer. Yum!!!

these were delicious, but I definitely had some trouble getting the egg to stick to the flour-dipped mushrooms. To avoid frustration, I just dipped my hands right in so I could make sure they were covered, but I definitely could've done without this step. I am a super-novice breader/deep fryer, so that may have something to do with it. I used Adobo seasoning as well as some garlic powder and cayenne pepper, but I think the breadcrumbs would be great mixed in with some Ranch dressing mix. Just a thought, but really yummy!

This was quite easy and also very good! I used a mix of breadcrumbs I had made up for another recipe which had orange zest and parsley, with a little Parmesan cheese in it. Loved them! Thank you Kitten!
