Air fryer breaded mushroom recipe …the method
The following process will deliver you very consistent results. The ingredients are relatively simple and easy to put together. The first part of the process is to create the mix.
We are simply pouring breadcrumbs into a bowl. Pour as much as you need, since we are simply dipping your mushrooms into this mix, most of it will be wasted. You will use less than you anticipate.
Into the breadcrumb bowl, i add some grated Parmesan cheese. Of course, this is optional but i think it gives them a nice flavor.
Next, we add in some black pepper to add to the levels of taste.
Adding in some paprika adds some spice to it and gives it a nice coloring too. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, add some chili powder for that extra kick.
To finish of the seasoning, we add a little salt too. This mix is now complete and will form the basis of the crust. This is where the flavor is held so make it as strong as you wish. As you will have noted, there are no measurements here since it is just a mix, use enough to give it flavor rather than over power it.
The next step is creating the breaded mushrooms. You may well be familiar with this process, but it is essentially dipping your mushrooms into the flour, then coating it with the egg mix, then rolling it into the breadcrumb mix i described above.
The key thing here is to ensure you remove any excess egg since we want the breadcrumbs to be relatively dry.
If you really want some extra crunch, you can repeat this process twice.
Time for the air fryer. As always, you should preheat your air fryer before you cook anything. For this recipe, we will be cooking at 400F.
We will initially cook them for 7 minutes, then we will give them a quick spray with some cooking oil, in my case olive oil. At the same time, i will flip them over so that both sides are cooked evenly. Just to clarify, both sides will have some olive oil sprayed on them.
I will then cook them for a further 5 minutes at the same temperature, 400F.
As you can see from the image above, don’t the air fryer breaded mushrooms look fabulous. A lovely golden color with a crunchy texture. Add a little side dip to complement them….you are good to serve them up!
