Popcorn Mushrooms and Caprese Panini

4 Aug

One of the only things I’ve missed since becoming vegetarian is popcorn chicken. I think it’s the fried breaded coating that I miss rather than the chicken itself, so we decided to experiment with popcorn mushrooms. They turned out pretty well considering we completely winged it. :D

Of course, you can’t just have fried mushrooms for dinner. The basil in Bobby’s backyard has become rather prolific, so we decided to make caprese paninis. Fresh mozzarella is sooo gooooood…

Popcorn Mushrooms

White mushrooms, halved
Salt and pepper to taste (I like white pepper)

Prepare your station by placing the flour, eggs (beaten), and breadcrumbs in three separate bowls.

Coat the individual pieces in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs, in that order.

Heat oil in a skillet and pan fry mushrooms until golden brown. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Length of procrastination: 20 minutes
