I am a big fan of fries and an even bigger fan of mushrooms so when I came across the idea of combining the two to make mushrooms fries I was immediately sold and just had to make them! The mushrooms are turned into 'fries' by slicing portobellos, coating them with panko bread crumbs and baking them until golden brown and crispy. Yes, mushroom fries really are as easy to make as they sound and it is a good thing because they are so amazingly good and frighteningly addictive! I practically inhaled the first batch and given that they are baked rather than fried, I don't feel quite so bad.
Mushroom fries go well with marinara sauce and/or chipotle lime mayonnaise for dipping!
Thirty minutes standing between you and crispy delicious mushroom heaven in your mouth!
