Fried Mushroom Recipe Steps
Here is my favourite crunch cream cheese stuffed mushroom fritter recipe.
This recipe is simple to make and only has a few ingredients.
Place some creamed cheese in a bowl, add soma chopped chives and fork though.
Place the creamed cheese into the refrigerator.
Get some small mushrooms and remove the centre stalk. A teaspoon may help to do this.
Mix some cornflour and plain flour 50/50.
Add some eggs to some milk and blend together and remove any lumps and yoke solids or blobs.
Mix some herbs like chives or thyme into your breadcrumbs.
Fill the hollowed-out mushrooms with the creamed cheese and roll them in your palms to make a round shape, then flour, eggwash and crumb the mushrooms, then eggwash and crumb a second time.
The mushrooms work best if crumbed on the day of cooking as the bread crumbs will draw out the mushrooms’ moisture.
Deep fry at @180 deg C or 350 deg F for 1-2 minutes, you will need to push the mushrooms under the cooking fat with a second basket or frying spider or tool.
I used good old button mushrooms, here are a few health benefits and tips on other popular mushrooms good for use in cooking and salads.
Are Mushrooms and Cream Cheese Good For Me?
Button mushrooms, also known as white mushrooms or Agaricus bisporus, are a good source of nutrients and can be a healthy addition to your diet when consumed in moderation. They are low in calories and fat and are a good source of fibre, protein, and several essential vitamins and minerals, including selenium, potassium, and niacin.
As for creamed cheese, it is high in fat and calories and should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet. When used in moderation, creamed cheese can add flavour and creaminess to dishes and can be a tasty addition to dishes like button mushrooms. It is important to read nutrition labels and choose lower fat and lower calorie options when possible.
Overall, button mushrooms with creamed cheese can be a tasty and nutritious snack or part of a meal, as long as they are consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet that includes a variety of nutrients.

Mushroom Nutrition And Popular Cooking Varieties
Mushrooms are a good source of nutrients and can be a healthy addition to your diet. They are low in calories and fat and are a good source of fibre, protein, and several essential vitamins and minerals, including selenium, potassium, and niacin.
There are many different types of mushrooms, each with its own unique nutritional profile. Some common types of mushrooms include white or button mushrooms, crimini mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, and oyster mushrooms.
How To Store Mushrooms
To store mushrooms, it is best to keep them in a paper bag or a container with a loose-fitting lid in the refrigerator. Avoid washing mushrooms until you are ready to use them, as they can become slimy if they are stored wet. It is also a good idea to use mushrooms within a few days of purchase, as they can become slimy and spoil quickly.
When preparing mushrooms, it is important to clean them thoroughly to remove any dirt or debris. Gently brush or wipe the mushrooms with a damp cloth or paper towel to remove any dirt, or rinse them quickly under cold water and pat them dry. Avoid soaking mushrooms in water, as this can cause them to become soggy and lose some of their flavours.
Overall, mushrooms can be a nutritious and delicious addition to your diet when consumed in moderation as part of a varied and balanced diet.
Here are a few more points about mushroom nutrition and storage:
- Mushrooms are a good source of antioxidants, which are substances that help to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause damage to cells and may be associated with the development of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease.
- Some types of mushrooms, such as shiitake and maitake, contain compounds called beta-glucans, which have been shown to have immune-boosting properties. Beta-glucans may help to support the immune system and may have potential health benefits for people with certain conditions, such as high cholesterol or diabetes.
- Mushrooms are also a good source of vitamin D, which is important for bone health. Many people do not get enough vitamin D from their diet alone, so getting some from mushrooms can be beneficial.
- When storing mushrooms, it is important to keep them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Avoid storing mushrooms in a plastic bag or a sealed container, as this can cause them to become soggy and spoil more quickly.
- To extend the shelf life of mushrooms, it is a good idea to store them in the refrigerator. However, be sure to keep them in a paper bag or a container with a loose-fitting lid to allow for proper air circulation.
- When preparing mushrooms, be sure to handle them carefully to avoid bruising or breaking them. Mushrooms are delicate and can become damaged easily if handled roughly.
