Deep Fried Mushrooms
Deep-fried mushrooms are an easy and delicious appetizer. There are, however, a few tips to making these. First, you should never wash the mushrooms. This will make them soggy as they will release more water while being deep-fried. The best thing to do is simply wipe them clean with a paper towel. Second, make sure you serve the deep-fried mushrooms immediately or they’ll become soggy. Last, make sure your oil is at 350°F. You can use a deep fry thermometer or a meat thermometer to check the temperature. Also, remember to fry them for only a minute and a half just to the point where they are nicely golden brown.I enjoy my deep-fried mushrooms served up with a simple mayonnaise and garlic sauce.
