Deep Fried Stuffed Mushrooms
These might be one of the best appetizers ever. If you like mushrooms that is, which I DO. A LOT! I tested these out the other night and they were so good, Mike and I ended up eating the whole batch for dinner, with a salad of course to keep things healthy. 🙂
I used plain old button mushrooms and made up a quick garlic and herb spiced cream cheese to stuff inside. Then I tossed the mushrooms in a dusting of flour, dipped in beaten egg and coated in Organic Panko Breadcrumbs. Panko are Japanese breadcrumbs that give an amazing crispy crunch to anything you coat them with. You could use regular breadcrumbs but I had panko on hand so, there you go!
These are a perfect appetizer to add to a Christmas or New Years Eve feast. Or, do what Mike and I did and just have them for dinner! You can make up a little dipping sauce if you like or just squeeze lemon juice all over. Fantastic and crunchy either way!
