Crispy Garlic Breaded Mushrooms


  • 1 pound (about 450g) fresh mushrooms, cleaned and stems trimmed
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (preferably panko for extra crispiness)
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish, optional)


  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create the seasoned flour.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk to create an egg wash.
  3. Dip each mushroom into the seasoned flour, ensuring it’s well-coated, then dip it into the egg wash, and finally, coat it with breadcrumbs. Press the breadcrumbs onto the mushrooms to adhere well.
  4. Place the breaded mushrooms on a baking sheet and let them rest for about 10 minutes. This helps the coating adhere better.
  5. In a large skillet, heat enough vegetable oil for frying over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the breaded mushrooms in the oil, making sure not to overcrowd the skillet. Fry until golden brown on all sides, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  6. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the fried mushrooms to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  7. Optional: Garnish with fresh chopped parsley for a burst of color and flavor.
  8. Serve the crispy garlic breaded mushrooms hot, with your favorite dipping sauce.
