1 cup flour
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 dash garlic powder
1 cup cold water
2 tablespoons shortening, melted
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced 1/4 inch thick
shortening for deep frying


In mixing bowl, combine the flour, cheese, salt, and garlic powder. Stir in the water, melted shortening, and egg; beat till smooth. Pat the mushrooms dry.

Dip mushrooms into batter. Fry, a few mushrooms at a time, in shortening heated to 365 degrees F. Fry till mushrooms are golden, about 3 minutes, turning once. Drain on paper toweling. Salt lightly and serve immediately.

cook's notes

To ensure nice, crispy, light mushrooms make sure the oil is at the proper temperature before dropping mushrooms in. Otherwise they will soak up oil and be greasy and heavy.

I tried this recipe and absolutely loved it. I added a sprinkling of sugar to the batter. The parmesan give this batter a very nice taste. The mushroom batter was thick and fried nice and golden. My family thought that they were very delicious. This recipe was simple and easy to make. I will add to my book of favorite recipes.
