Fried Mushrooms are one of those appetizers we always order when we go out. Now we have them at home made in the air fryer, so, we’re not only saving money we’re saving a lot of calories. The other great thing about this recipe is that it’s completely customizable, like so many of our recipes we love to personalize the dish based on what we are feeling that day.
Other fun air fryer appetizers are goat cheese balls, pesto shrimp, coconut shrimp, and meatball madness.
Biting into these mushrooms you get a little fried crunch, a nice juicy meaty mushroom, and then the spice of the cayenne hits the back of your palate. Cooling dipping sauce like ranch dressing make these a winner for any game day or party fun.
Tips to make Air Fryer Fried Mushrooms
These mushrooms can be air fried or baked. It’s just faster to air fry them. Heck, you could even deep fry them. A few tips for making the fried mushrooms:
Rinse off the mushrooms with cold water to get all the dirt off and then gently dry them with a paper towel
If the mushrooms are large cut them in half or quarters so they are bite size pieces
Place toothpicks in a couple mushrooms. This helps keep fingers clean and really makes it easy to move the mushrooms from the flour to the eggs to the panko. Then just use the toothpicks in the next round
Put the Egg and Milk in a small 1/3 cup size bowl or measuring cup. This helps with dipping the mushrooms and completely coating them.
Place the flour mixture in a shallow bowl
Dip the Mushrooms in the flour mixture, than the egg and than the panko.
Once all mushrooms are coated they are ready to air fry or bake. If air frying spray the basket with cooking spray and place the panko mushrooms in the air fryer. Then spray the mushrooms with the cooking spray. We like to use a butter spray or olive oil spray.
Finally enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce. These mushrooms are so good we usually eat them right out of the air fryer. Be careful they are hot and, trust me, if you don’t wait a couple of minutes the roof of your mouth will be burnt!!! We found ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing are a really good sauce. I bet a cheese dip would be super good as well. Let us know your favorite sauce.
