💡 Tips

1. Try Different Seasonings

You can add a pinch of garlic powder, paprika, or even Italian seasoning to the breaded mushrooms before placing them in the air fryer.

I like adding smoked paprika because it gives the mushrooms a nice smoky flavor. Smoked salt can be used instead for a more intense smoky flavor.

2. Serve With A Dipping Sauce

Another way to make your air fryer frozen mushrooms even more delicious is to use a variety of dipping sauces.

While you can always go for classic ketchup or mayo, you can also try different sauces like honey mustard, ranch, or even tzatziki.

The choice is yours, and it depends on what you prefer. My tip is to try them all!

3. Add Some Cheese

Who doesn’t love cheese? Adding some grated Parmesan or mozzarella cheese to the air fryer frozen breaded mushrooms is an excellent way to make them more flavorful and irresistible.

Sprinkle some cheese over the mushrooms before cooking them in the air fryer, and watch how the cheese melts and blends with the crispy breading, making your mushrooms ooey-gooey and delicious.

4. Serve With A Side Dish

You can go for classic sides like fries, onion rings, or a side salad, or try something new like sweet potato wedges or roasted vegetables.

5. Make A Mushroom Sandwich

For a fun twist on this recipe, you can turn your air fryer frozen breaded mushrooms into a sandwich!

Simply toast a bun and add some lettuce, tomato, and your favorite condiments. Place the cooked mushrooms on top of the bun and serve with a side of fries or chips.

This makes for a delicious and satisfying lunch or dinner that is sure to be a hit with everyone.

6. Overcrowding The Air Fryer Basket

One important tip to keep in mind when making frozen breaded mushrooms in air fryer is to avoid overcrowding the air fryer basket.

If you place too many mushrooms in the basket at once, they may not cook evenly or become as crispy as desired.

It is best to cook the mushrooms in batches, placing only enough in the basket so that they are not touching or overlapping.

This will allow the hot air to circulate freely around the mushrooms, ensuring that they cook evenly and become crispy all around.

7. Temperature And Time

Air fryers can vary in temperature and cooking time, so it’s important to adjust your settings based on the specific model you have.

For this air fryer frozen breaded mushrooms recipe, the recommended temperature is 380F (190C) for 8-10 minutes.

👍 Best Dipping Sauces

Classic Ketchup– You can never go wrong with the classic ketchup!  It’s a perfect dipping sauce for those who prefer a mild yet tasty flavor.

Garlic Aioli– Garlic aioli is another excellent dipping sauce that pairs well with the air fryer frozen breaded mushrooms. This sauce has a creamy texture and a hint of garlic flavor that adds a savory punch to the dish.

Garlic Aioli for mushrooms
