I have tried to get these Egg-Free Crumbed Mushrooms right, a few times before. However, it never quite turned out the way I wanted it to. This time however, it turned out perfect.
These mushrooms are my favorite and could eat them everyday, if only they weren’t deep fried. I am sure they could work in the Air-Fryer so next time will try that.
There was a recipe that I stumbled upon. That recipe used a batter but somehow it didn’t quite appeal to me. The batter didn’t have any herbs or spices, it was just a plain batter.
I don’t think a batter will give mushrooms that crunch I was looking for. So I decided to pimp up my batter and dip them in Panko breadcrumbs.
Panko breadcrumbs is a Japanese breadcrumb found in most major supermarkets. It is made from white bread without the crusts.
It is a lighter, airier breadcrumb that doesn’t absorb a whole lot of grease and it stays crispy for longer. It gives the mushrooms a perfect crunch too.
These Egg-Free mushrooms are absolutely to die for. I promise it is addictive. I could not stop eating them. They are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside with a hint of lemon.
Although I don’t do deep fried often this recipe is a keeper. I will definitely make it again and again, that’s how much I love them.
I made a little dip too and that just took those mushrooms to another level. You have got to try them.
The batter for these mushrooms should be a runny consistency. You then dip the mushroom into the batter and allow the excess batter to drip off. Roll them into the Panko crumbs and deep fry them.
Ii is best if you start by using half the quantity of breadcrumbs because you don’t want all the crumbs becoming soggy. You won’t even miss the eggs.
I am never using eggs to make these mushrooms again. I am a little old-fashioned so I don’t use any fancy gadgets to the test the oil.
You merely drop a crumb in and if bubbles forms around it and the crumb rises I know my oil is hot enough. These mushrooms need to be fried until golden brown.
