Mushroom Appetizers-Italian Fried Mushroom Bites Recipe

Mushrooms are so good. My husband isn’t a huge fan of Mushrooms in general, but even he loved these. These are great to serve as appetizers or finger foods too.

Sometimes, the easier the recipe the better it is. Why? Don’t ask silly questions. If you can make a recipe that tastes great and was easy to make, you can’t complain. At ALL! Yay!

Baby girl helps me make these whenever we decide to. She LOVES to roll them in the breadcrumbs! Get this, she doesn’t usually like mushrooms either, but she had no idea what these even were until the first time I let her help… now she says she doesn’t like mushrooms but she likes them like this. Fine with me.

I frequently have to double the recipe, because if I don’t, these go so fast and not everyone gets to try one. I prefer to serve them with both Ranch and Marinara for people to choose what they want. I actually can’t pick just one kind myself either as I am totally in love with both Ranch and Marinara. Technically I use both dips! I interchange, and if I am feeling naughty, I use both, at the same time! GASP!

Sorry, I am getting ahead of myself. I just love them so much that I feel I have to talk them up, when really these speak for themselves.

Once you have sauteed the mushrooms, your house will smell like love and the mushrooms will be nicely cooked. Dip them into that egg mixture and then into the breadcrumbs. Only a little bit more cooking left after that! The next step? Serve and enjoy! They are best when they are still warm.
