  • 1 lb portobello mushrooms
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Oil for frying


  1. Prepare the mushrooms by removing the stems and slicing them into thick strips.
  2. In a shallow dish, mix together the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  3. In another dish, whisk together the eggs and milk to create an egg wash.
  4. Dip each mushroom strip into the egg wash, then coat it in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere.
  5. Place the coated mushroom strips on a baking sheet and refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.
  6. Heat oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 350°F.
  7. Fry the mushroom strips in batches for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.
  8. Remove the fries from the oil and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  9. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired, and serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.


  • Make sure the oil is at the correct temperature before frying to ensure crispy fries.
  • Do not overcrowd the fryer or pot, as this will lower the oil temperature and result in soggy fries.
  • Experiment with different seasonings and dipping sauces to customize the flavor of your portobello fries.


  • Try using different types of mushrooms, such as shiitake or oyster, for a unique twist on this recipe.
  • For a healthier alternative, bake the coated mushroom strips in the oven at 400°F for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through.
