Portobello Mushroom Fries

By • April 14, 2011 • 10 Comments



Author Notes: These fries are wonderful for appetizers with a sauce of your choosing or, the way I prefer them, with a sprinkle of sea salt and pepper or a squeeze of lime juice. The addition of cheese in the dredge makes it unecessary for much else. They also make a great side for a juicy steak.dymnyno

Serves 2(easy to double or triple or...)

  • 4 four inch portobello mushrooms (fresh so the caps are still a little tucked under)
  • 1 cup Wondra (the fine flours sticks to the mushroom)
  • 1 cup panko
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  1. Spoon out the insides of the mushrooms, including the stems, carefully so not to break the rim. Cut each mushroom into as many 3/4 to 1 inch wide strips as allows.
  2. Mix the panko, thyme and the grated Parmesan cheese together.
  3. Set up three stations: 1. bowl of Wondra, 2 bowl of eggs and 3. bowl of panko/cheese/thyme
  4. Dip the mushroom strips, one at a time in the Wondra, then the egg, then the panko.
  5. Have a large saute pan filled with about an inch of hot oil and saute the strips on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
  6. Serve with a sprinkle of sea salt and pepper or with a squeeze of fresh lime.

I remembered seeing these during the mushroom contest, but couldn't remember whose they were, and here they are. I have a flat of portobellos that have your name all over them this week.
