Bit of a throw back, but they are delicious and the addition of the oregano in the breadcrumbs is really rather nice. The mushrooms will be boiling hot when they first come out, so either wait a minute or warn your guests
Ingredients Makes 24 Mushrooms
24 small button mushroom or 12 mushrooms cut in half
Plain flour for dusting
Beaten egg mixed with a little milk
100g dried breadcrumbs
1 tbsp dried oregano
Salt and pepper
700ml vegetable or cooking oil
3 tbsp good quality mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
Wipe the mushrooms clean with kitchen paper
Mix the breadcrumbs with oregano and some salt and pepper
Have the flour, egg and breadcrumbs in 3 separate medium sized bowls lined up along the work top
Dust the mushrooms in the flour, a few at a time and dust off any excess flour
Next, dip them into the egg wash making sure they are completely coated but handling carefully
Coat completely in breadcrumbs, then repeat the flour, egg and breadcrumb process one more time so each mushroom has been coated twice
Heat the oil gently on a medium heat in a heavy based pan, or heat a deep fat fryer until a small piece of bread sizzles and turns golden brown
Fry the mushrooms in batches until they float at the top of the oil and are golden brown, take them out with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper
Mix the mayonnaise, garlic and parsley together and put in a small bowl in the middle of a serving plate, place the mushrooms around the small bowl and serve still hot with some cocktail sticks and cocktail napkins
