Easy Fried Mushrooms Recipe

I truly don’t know what I’d do without my parents. I know, I know, this post is about a fried mushrooms recipe, but a gal has to praise her parents every chance she gets when they’re as good as mine.

When I’m having a bad day or celebrating a special occasion, I usually get the phone call,

What are you doing tomorrow night?

I’ve known them long enough that I know it means they want to cook and feed us something GOOD! (Have I mentioned that “food is love?” Well it comes honest from my parents.)

Deep Fried Mushrooms

A few months ago, the phone call was made, and we were invited down for my FAVORITE meal ever. Fried deer meat, mashed potatoes, and white gravy. Then my dad added in a little extra surprise… deep-fried mushrooms.

Holy moly. When I watched him make this fried mushroom recipe, I realized I had been missing out on a delicious side dish, because I thought they would be hard to make.

Easy Side Dish Recipe

To my surprise, they’re possibly one of the easiest fried side dishes ever. So when I asked him how to make them, and what spice(s) he used for the breading… I was HOOKED when he told me all that it was.

“That’s it?”

So I picked up a carton of sliced mushrooms the next time I was at the store, and whipped these up for you all, so you can make them too!

Can you Use Button Mushrooms?

You can! But we personally don’t like button mushrooms because of the texture when you bite in to them. The sliced mushrooms make them easier to eat and give you that “crispier, crunchier” texture rather than the “bursting with juices” texture that the button mushrooms have.

How to Wash Mushrooms

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.)

  • Seasoned salt
  • Flour
  • Oil
  • Sliced Mushrooms

That’s it. The seasoned salt was super tasty in the flour breading and made a big difference. But feel free to use a different seasoning options to consider are:

  • lemon pepper
  • garlic pepper
  • strawberry’s bbq seasoning
  • greek seasoning

How to Fry Mushrooms

How Long to Fry Mushrooms

Heat your oil in a pan over medium heat and once oil is ready, add in your mushrooms and cook for 2-3 minutes (flipping if necessary) until golden brown.

Mmmm… looks at those tasty little fried morsels.

Eating these mushrooms by themselves is how we eat them but they’d also be amazing alongside chipotle sauce!

Thinking “Inside” the Box

Until I saw my dad do this, I never even thought to purchase sliced mushrooms in the store and fry them. I always just assumed fried mushrooms had to wait until morels were ready in the woods, or I had to have fried mushrooms at one of my favorite restaurants!

I’m so glad that I can make these at home now!
