These little delights are so delicious, you'll be surprised how many you can eat!

Serve as a snack with a yummy dip or as a side to enhance your meal.

I normally make this for me and my sister to snack on while we watch the football, and I'll admit we have been known to make a second batch before its even close to halftime! Oops. :/

Hot tip: To make these even more delicious, sprinkle with parmesan cheese after frying.

  • 2-3 c
    vegetable oil for deep frying (im just guessing the quantity!)
  • OPTIONAL

  • 2 tsp
    baking powder (i forgot to include this earlier because i dont usually add it, but can give your mushrooms a nice round look if thats what you like. doesnt make a difference for me)

    some people find this coating bland so if you're worried about it add some herbs or spices. i love it how it is.

How to Make Deep Fried Mushrooms: Battered & Crumbed

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oil to 190 degrees Celcius
  2. Mix dry ingredients (except breadcrumbs) in a bowl and add water to make the batter (pancake consistency or close to it)
  3. Using a fork or skewer, dip mushroom in batter and let excess drip off. I usually do a few at a time and lean them against the bowl until all the excess has finished dripping off.
  4. Coat the battered mushroom in breadcrumbs and fry until golden.
  5. Drain on paper towels and let stand for a few minutes as the mushroom will be piping hot inside. Season with salt & pepper as desired.
  6. Serve as a side or as a snack.
