These deep-fried mushrooms are a favorite of my youngest son. They're his special treat.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Deep fried mushrooms are a delicious snack when watching football and make a simple party appetizer. One fried, these are crispy outside and tender and juicy inside. We had leftovers that we placed in the fridge. The next day, they were still yummy. Serve with ranch dipping sauce for a nibble your guests will love.
