Crispy Baked Breaded Mushrooms

One of my favorite breaded snacks is mushrooms. I used to order them all every time I saw them on a fast food menu. It was somewhat of a rarity to find them, though. Now I can make them at home any time I want with this recipe.

The best part about making them at home is the ability to bake them, instead of eating them deep fried. You’d think that might sacrifice some of the crispy goodness, but it doesn’t. It just makes it more healthy due to using way less oil.

Dip them in whatever sauce you love for a healthy and guilt-free snack. Try this delicious honey mustard sauce or homemade blue cheese dressing.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Baby mushrooms – We use baby bella or white button mushrooms. Choose small, bite size mushrooms.
  • Flour – All-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper – to taste
  • Egg – 1 egg beaten
  • Milk
  • Breadcrumbs – Plain breadcrumbs or panko breadcrumbs.
  • Dry rub – We always use this homemade dry rub. It is the perfect mix of spices.

How to Make Breaded Mushrooms

The best way to make sure your mushrooms are crispy and the breading stays is to make a dipping station.

You’ll need three bowls or plates.

  1. Flour seasoned with salt and pepper.
  2. Egg and milk (and garlic, if you like).
  3. Plain breadcrumbs or Panko, Parmesan cheese, paprika, salt, and black pepper.

Step One

Start by rolling the mushrooms in flour. This will help the breading stick to the mushrooms.

Step Two

Next, roll them in the egg mixture. Coat them well, but then shake off any excess egg.

Step Three

Then roll them in the breadcrumb mixture. Again, coat them well, but shake off excess crumbs.

Breading Mushrooms

Step Four

Put the mushrooms on a baking sheet. Spray them with cooking spray. The more evenly they’re sprayed the more golden they will get all around. Do note that it’s not necessary to spray them at all, but they won’t get golden crispy if you don’t.

Breaded Mushrooms

Bake in the oven at 400° F (200 C) for 15 minutes, or until they’re looking browned and crispy.

Air Fryer Breaded Mushrooms

If you have an air fryer, you’ll want to try making these in there instead. It takes slightly less time, around 10-12 minutes at 400° F (200C), and they turn out even crispier than in the oven.

Again, you’ll want to spray them with some cooking oil to get golden crisp.

It’s also super easy to reheat breaded mushrooms in the air fryer. If you happen to have some left over, you can recrisp them in about 5 minutes in the air fryer.

» If you don’t have an Air Fryer yet (go directly to Amazon and order one!), you really should consider it. We have a free Air Fryer starter guide that you can download or check out our Air Fryer page for more.

What to Serve Breaded Mushrooms With

These make a great appetizer or snack. I usually make a big batch and set them out in the afternoon when we’re watching a movie. They’re gone in no time.

But they also make a good side dish for things like BBQ chicken wings or Baby Back Ribs.

These mushrooms love a good sauce. Ranch dressing is my go to, but they’re also really good with sriracha mayo, honey mustard, or blue cheese dressing.
