I'm a huge mushroom fan. When I was little one of my favorite restaurant treats was fried mushrooms. They're rich and crunchy and just plain wicked! I honestly think you could batter and fry a smelly gym sock (I've cleaned one to many lockers rooms) and it would come out crunchy and wonderful. Just thinking about it's making my mouth water... not the gym sock, the mushrooms! I may be crazy, but I'm not insane :) It's true you can fry about anything. I've had fried pickles and even a fried candy bar (now that's wonderful!). If you want a humongous fried food fest visit a State Fair. The Missouri State Fair's just around the corner. I'm fortune to live close enough to easily go to the fair, yet far enough away to miss the hustle and bustle. I probably will not be going to the fair this year, but I can enjoy my fried treats at home :)
1 pkg mushrooms, sliced
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup flour
Heat about 1/2 inch of oil in a skillet to about 350. Season flour well with salt and pepper. Dip mushrooms into egg then flour and place into hot oil. Cook until lightly browned (3-5 minutes). Flip and brown the other side. Place onto a paper towel to drain excess oil. Sprinkle hot mushrooms with salt. I like to dip mine in ranch dressing.
