Easy Crispy Fried Mushrooms

Fried Mushrooms

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4

– 1 pound whole mushrooms (button or cremini)
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon garlic powder
– 1 teaspoon onion powder
– 1/2 teaspoon paprika
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
– 2 large eggs
– 1 cup breadcrumbs (panko or regular)
– Vegetable oil, for frying
– Ranch or your favorite dipping sauce (optional)

1. Clean the mushrooms with a damp paper towel and trim the stems if necessary.
2. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
3. In another shallow bowl, beat the eggs.
4. Place the breadcrumbs in a third shallow bowl.
5. Dip each mushroom into the flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Then dip it into the beaten eggs, and finally coat it with breadcrumbs. Press gently to ensure the breadcrumbs adhere well.
6. Heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C).
7. Fry the mushrooms in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the skillet. Cook each batch for about 2-3 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden brown and crispy.
8. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fried mushrooms to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
9. Serve the fried mushrooms hot with ranch or your favorite dipping sauce.
