Easy Fried Mushrooms
Easy Fried Mushrooms Recipe: Whether in a pan or deep fried, these sliced mushrooms are quick and easy to make as an appetizer or side dish!
1 box 8 oz. of sliced mushrooms, cleaned
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoon seasoned salt
Vegetable or Canola Oil enough to create an inch or more of oil in pan if pan frying, or enough for your deep fryer requirements
Step 1: Did you know you’re not supposed to soak mushrooms? They’ll absorb water, and you sure don’t want that for taste/frying. Just wipe or lightly rinse with cool water and pat dry. (Better yet, if you have time, wash them early and let air dry after you pat dry too… just so there is little chance of any water remaining on the mushrooms.)
Step 2: Combine flour and seasoned salt in large bowl. Add egg. Then add milk.
Step 3: Pour mushrooms in to flour/salt mixture and stir to coat. Heat oil in pan over medium heat if pan frying. If deep frying, heat oil to 375.
When oil is heated through (to test if oil is ready, sprinkle a pinch of flour in oil. If sizzles, it’s ready.)
Place mushrooms in oil, and fry for 2-3 minutes, (flipping if necessary) until they turn to a golden brown.
If deep frying, fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from oil and drain on plate topped with papertowels to soak up excess oil.
