Making Fried Mushrooms in the Air Fryer
You start with sliced mushrooms. I cut my mushrooms in quarters, but you can slice them however you want. I like them a little juicy, so I didn’t want to dry them out too much.
You’ll dip each mushroom in egg wash, then almond flour then egg was and almond flour again. Pro-tip. Don’t use your fingers like I did here. After making these the first time, I used a fork to take the mushrooms from bowl to bowl.
Spritz your air fryer with oil. Add in the mushrooms and spritz the mushrooms too. Check out my spritzer below. It’s awesome and very easy to use. Makes clean up easier too, so that’s a win-win!

Which Air Fryer Should I Buy?
I have two air fryers, and I use both (really, I do!). I love the basket fryer style for single or double serve dishes. But my favorite – my baby – is my air fryer / toaster oven. This lives on my counter and is my go-to air fryer for most meals. It’s also my toaster since my daughter moved out and took the two slice with her. The two models I have are shown below. Check them out!
Before you buy, I encourage you to check out the reviews on air fryers, maybe look at some posts on Pinterest. I did a lot of research to determine what price point I should consider and which model air fryers I should avoid.
Can food be low carb and fried?
It might take a few tries to get used to frying in an air fryer. My first few batches didn’t have the crusty coating I wanted. The coat also tends to be a little dryer (and if you know how to keep it from being dry, please let me know!). I love adding ranch dip, and that works perfectly with a lot of fried veggies.
