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 mushroom 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.)

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

Holy moly.  When I watched him make them, 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!

Yes, seasoned salt, flour, oil, and mushrooms. That’s it.  The seasoned salt was super tasty in the flour breading and made a big difference.

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.)

Ingredients

  • 1 8-ounce package sliced mushrooms cleaned
  • 1 cup flour
  • 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.

Instructions

  1. Combine flour and seasoned salt in large bowl or zip-top bag.
  2. Pour mushrooms into flour/salt mixture and stir or shake to coat.
  3. Heat oil in the pan over medium heat if pan frying. If deep frying, heat oil to 375.
  4. When oil is heated through (to test if oil is ready, sprinkle a pinch of flour in oil. If sizzles, it's ready.)
  5. Place mushrooms in oil, and fry for 2-3 minutes, (flipping if necessary) until they turn to a golden brown.
  6. If deep frying, fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Remove from oil and drain on a plate topped with paper towels to soak up excess oil.
  8. Serve warm!

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 had always just thought “inside of the box” and thought I had to wait until we stumbled upon wild mushrooms (not the poisonous ones of course) before we were able to eat these tasty little things.  (Face-palm.)
