DIRECTIONS

  • Place enough vegetable oil into a deep frying pan on low-medium heat. (I generally place in enough oil so that the bottom half of my mushrooms are submerged. You can always add more.).
  • You do not want the oil bubbling wildly. Adjust temperature accordingly when you place the mushrooms in (a low simmer is nice.).
  • Wash mushrooms and cut off tips of stems.
  • If the mushrooms are really big (such as stuffing mushrooms) cut them in half or even quarters. Otherwise, leave whole.
  • Place flour, eggs and breadcrumbs into three large, separate Tupperware containers.
  • Mix pepper, garlic powder and salt in with the breadcrumbs.
  • Place mushrooms in with the flour. Cover and shake until mushrooms are well coated.
  • Transfer mushrooms to Tupperware dish that has the beaten eggs in it. Cover and shake again until mushrooms are evenly coated.
  • Lastly, transfer mushrooms to final Tupperware container that has the breadcrumbs in it. NOTE: It is better to do this step in two batches as sometimes if there are not enough breadcrumbs the mushrooms do not get a nice even coat and look instead like they are covered in a lumpy batter.).
  • Place mushrooms in oil carefully and cook until bottoms are browned. Flip over and continue cooking until entire mushrooms are cooked through.
  • Mushrooms are done when gently crisp and the breading no longer appears wet looking.
  • Remove mushrooms with slotted spoon and place on plate lined with paper towel to drain.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese or dip them into your favourite sauce (such as Ranch).
  • *Optional: add some additional herbs or Parmesan cheese to the breadcrumbs to give the recipe a more professional appearance like that in the restaurants.
