If you are a fan of mushrooms, you may know that there are plenty of ways to prepare them, such as sautéing, baking and breading. Breaded mushrooms can be deep-fried or pan-fried and both are delicious. Button, morel, portabella and shiitake are a few of the most commonly used mushrooms for cooking. When you are preparing the mushrooms to be breaded, egg is the key ingredient for making the breading stick.

  1. 1

    Clean the mushrooms. Mushrooms are porous and do not need to be soaked or rinsed. Consider a small mushroom brush to wipe away any clinging growth or wipe with a damp paper towel.

  2. 2

    Coat the mushrooms individually with flour and shake off any excess. Place on a plate or paper towel.

  3. 3

    Whisk the egg yolk until it's thin.

  4. 4

    Use tongs to dip each mushroom in the egg yolk, making sure to coat them completely. Roll each mushroom in the breading and coat evenly.

  5. 5

    Place on a baking tray or fry in oil. Once the mushrooms are brown and crispy, they are ready to be served.
