Recipe: Oven Fried Mushrooms

This is a quick and easy recipe for Oven Fried Mushrooms… perfect for snacking… great for parties.. no muss … no fuss… no standing over a hot stove deep frying mushrooms.

They’re absolutely delicious and so much better than deep fried.


I used unseasoned bread crumbs .. you can use seasoned ones if you prefer.
I season my flour with a sprinkle of garlic powder and freshly ground pepper.. I didn’t use salt for two reasons.. one.. the bread crumbs have salt already in them… and two… I didn’t want to “encourage” the water out of the mushrooms… mushrooms are full of water and salt will make the water just run out.. something you don’t want.

A little sprinkle of Parmesan cheese in the flour or bread crumbs adds nice flavor too.

I use Egg Beaters instead of egg.. they work perfectly.. cut the fat and no one is the wiser.

Quantities have been left off.. since it will depend on how many mushrooms you plan to make… start with about 1 cup of flour… 1 cup of bread crumbs and about ½ cup Egg Beaters or two eggs for about t 8 oz of small mushrooms.

I like to serve these with a ranch dressing… hmmm so good!

Bake for about 10 minutes or until the breading is crisp. Don’t over-bake or they will get mushy.
