Fried Mushrooms Recipe

Another great recipe for your super bowl party here – fried mushrooms. Fried mushrooms are whole mushrooms coated with a batter, rolled in bread crumbs and then deep fried. The end result is a delicious and perfectly crispy snack.

The secret to these perfectly crispy fried mushrooms is Panko bread crumbs. Panko breadcrumbs are Japanese style breadcrumbs and can be found in the Asian section of many stores. If you can’t find Panko breadcrumbs, you can use normal breadcrumbs as well.

As you can tell from the ingredients there are not a lot of seasonings added to the coating. If you want to spice it up a little try adding some garlic powder and salt.

These fried mushrooms make an amazing snack for any party. Enjoy.

My husband and I bought a bunch of mushrooms at the Farmer's Market and then we didn't know what to do with them all. I found your recipe and we ate fried mushrooms last night for dinner. Thank you for the recipe. They turned out quite good and will definitely save this recipe for another time.

Annie - the cornstarch goes in with the flour, baking powder and salt mixture, which the water is added to.

Amazing! Tried it and they were really crunchy! I mixed the flour with some chilli powder to give them a kick!
