crispy fried mushrooms

Recipe by

These Fried Mushrooms are coated with a somewhat spicy seasoned panko bread crumb mixture and fried to crispy golden perfection. Beyond a doubt they are the best fried mushroom recipe I have ever tried. They always get rave reviews and they are great for movie night, game day and cocktails with friends. I love to serve them with Chili Cheese Dip, Cowboy Caviar, and Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip.
