    Air fryer mushrooms recipe


  • Do not use seasoned breadcrumbs as it may make the dish a bit salty. Since my cheese was salted and the sauce has salt in it, it didn’t use seasoned breadcrumbs in this recipe.
  • If you want, you can coat the mushrooms twice with breadcrumbs. After the first coat, dip them in egg white and coat them again with breadcrumbs. This gives the mushrooms a really nice texture after air frying.
  • Baking - for baking option, preheat the oven to 350F and bake the mushrooms on a lined baking sheet for 12-15 minutes.
  • The time of baking or air drying may vary based on the size of the mushrooms. Keep an eye on mushrooms after 10-minutes of cooking. The mushrooms should look brown and feel crisp at the end of first round of air frying before brushing with hot sauce.
