1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 dash garlic powder

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.
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.
