Fried Mushrooms Marinara Recipe

Offer this eye-appealing appetizer at your next party and get ready to hand out the recipe. I deep-fry breaded mushrooms before adding them to a bed of spaghetti sauce. —Barbara McCalley, Allison Park, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Cook: 15 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 pound medium fresh mushrooms, stems removed
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • 1 jar (26 ounces) marinara sauce or meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. In a shallow dish, beat eggs and water. Place bread crumbs in another shallow dish. Add mushrooms to the flour mixture; seal bag and shake to coat. Dip in egg mixture, then coat with bread crumbs. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  • 2. In a deep saucepan, electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry mushrooms, six to eight at a time, for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown, turning occasionally. Drain on paper towels.
  • 3. Pour spaghetti sauce into an ungreased 13x9-in. baking dish. Top with the mushrooms. Sprinkle with cheeses. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 4-6 minutes or until cheese is melted. Yield: about 2 dozen.

"I normally do not fry a lot of foods, but I am so glad that I made this recipe. Family loved it. I did add garlic powder and Italian seasonings to the flour. I used Aldi's Italian bread crumbs. Will be making this again."
