Fried Mushrooms

Absolute perfection! I have never tasted a better Fried Mushroom in my life. My mushrooms were gigantic and I had to cut them into quarters. As much as I hate to fry food, I will fry these again in a heartbeat. When you bite into them, the breading stays attached and the flavor….oh my! If you love mushrooms like I do, you have to try this one!

  1. Oh yes – sounds yummy. I love mushrooms too – we used to pick gigantic ones in late summer from some riverside fields near us in Wiltshire. They were as big as dinner plates! No really we used to call them Horse mushrooms and they grew in fields that were once managed as water meadows and grazed by the large cart mates that used to pull the hay wagons. And once in an adjacent field we had a mushroom ‘whiteout’ – the whole 25 acre field covered in mushrooms. We gathered a few basketfuls making sure we cut them off at the stalk and cooked them every which way you could think of – even making some mushroom relish or ketchup.

  2. Delicious looking, dear Diana
    It goes well together with some dips, for example self-made mayonese (without eggs) with small sliced onions, a bit sugar and together with small diced pickles, a bit lemon in addition.

    Thanks for sharing my friend
    Now I am hungry 🙂

    • Thank you! I don’t powder them but when they are on sale I buy a bunch, slice them and dehydrate the slices. I like to put the dehydrated mushrooms into homemade cream of mushroom soup!
