Fried Mushrooms

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by luvmybge

At my house, we don't like those fried mushrooms that are black and slimy where the breading slides easily off. This recipe is just a very crisp breading on a fresh mushroom. They'll 'pop' when you cut into them they are so fresh. Panko breadcrumbs are a polished bread crumb that you can find in an Asian market or the International section of your favorite food store and they make just a wonderful crunchier coating, too.

Fantastic!!! I used 1 tsp. Lawry's seasoned salt in the batter mix. I had enough batter for 1 lb. of the mushrooms. I pre-heated my oil to 350 degrees while I battered my mushrooms. Big huge hit at our Sunday football party! This one is a definate keeper...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  2. Add water to make a batter.
  3. Dip clean mushroom into batter letting excess batter drip off.
  4. I find it easier to stick a toothpick into the mushroom to dip it.
  5. After dipping into batter roll in Panko breadcrumbs to coat.
  6. Deep fry in oil until golden.
  7. We like to serve with cocktail sauce.
