Garlic Mushrooms

Garlic Mushrooms

I don't know if this was the same for other people growing up but these were a very popular chipper item. My wife still adores them and will order them regularly! Tasty little simple dish you can rack up in a few minutes and a great way to use up mushrooms instead of leaving them to die in the fridge!

Wine Pairing

Camille Giroud Bourgogne Blanc



  • 20 button mushrooms, cleaned
  • 75g plain flour
  • 100g dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • Mayo
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives




  1. I used a deepfat fryer for this, set to 160.
  2. You can of course use a pan full of oil and check the temp with a probe.
  3. Mix together mayo, chives and 1 cloves minced garlic and hey presto you have a dipping sauce. Leave in the fridge.
  4. Flour in a bowl.
  5. Breadcrumbs in another bowl with garlic powder, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  6. Beat the shit out of your eggs in a separate bowl.
  7. Dip your mushroom in flour first, then the egg, then the mushroom mix.
  8. Mushrooms need to be covered completely.
  9. Fry in batches. Cook for 3 minutes, should be crispy and brown.
  10. Transfer to a cooling rack over some kitchen roll.
  11. Keep going in batches until all are cooked!
  12. Let them cool slightly or you will rip your mouth apart when you chew.
  13. Dip with your mayo and enjoy.
