Air Fryer Breaded Mushrooms

This is an update of our air fryer frozen breaded mushrooms that we originally published back in February 2019. Here is what I had to say back then:

If you are following our weekends of frozen food in the air fryer, then you will have had some fantastic treats so far.

We had air fryer frozen sweet potato fries last Saturday, air fryer frozen sweet potato wedges last Sunday and today it is the turn of air fryer frozen breaded mushrooms.

We we’re recently recipe testing some mushrooms for an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker recipe (it was our Instant Pot pork chops with mushroom gravy) and Dominic being the mushroom fan in our house, pointed out that we had never done breaded mushrooms in the air fryer and it was a must.

Dominic used to work as a chef in the pubs in England and breaded mushrooms was a regular thing on the menu.

It was one of those side dishes that you often had as a starter or as a side dish with some steak. Nearly always it came with some tomato ketchup.

I am sure he probably had a few breaded mushrooms when he was supposed to be working, after all the free food was always the biggest perk of the job.

Can You Cook Frozen Breaded Mushrooms In An Air Fryer?

Absolutely and air fryer frozen mushrooms are delicious. They are ideal for throwing a bag of frozen breaded (or battered) mushrooms in the air fryer, while you cook something else in your instant pot.

Or you can load frozen mushrooms with other favourite appetizers for that perfect Saturday night in!

Why Air Fryer Frozen Breaded Mushrooms

I often see suggestions for cooking breaded mushrooms in the oven. But there is a big problem there and that is that they are often soggy and dry.

The oven steals any moisture and they never have that lovely pub crispy texture.

Plan B is always to deep fry your frozen breaded mushrooms. Of course, they taste amazing like this, but seriously how bad is that for you? But the air fryer is like being hypnotised.

You think they have been deep fried as they taste that good, but really, they have been air fried which is the same in calories as being oven baked.

Or as I like to put it its like eating fries for the same calories as a jacket potato!

Air Fryer Frozen Breaded Mushroom Brands

Air Fryer Frozen Breaded Mushrooms

We used the brand Iceland for our frozen breaded mushrooms. It is part of their American style range and gives you a 280g bag of breaded mushrooms.

My first thought was how small the bag of frozen mushrooms was for the money. But when you consider that breaded mushrooms are quite big, then you realise you are getting quite a lot to put in the air fryer.

We found that from brand to brand they are very similar. So, if you have a different brand of frozen breaded mushrooms then don’t worry, simply follow the instructions below as they are universal for all brands.

Air Frying Mushrooms

There are a few different ways that you can air fry frozen mushrooms and it depends on personal preference.

Frozen mushrooms in air fryer is rather a broad term and you can do it many ways. You can be reheating from frozen stuffed mushrooms, cooking frozen blanched mushrooms, or cooking mushrooms that are breaded or battered.

The healthier keto version that my readers LOVE is when you air fry from frozen basic mushrooms. You then add garlic butter, and you have a wonderful side vegetable for dinner. The smell of the garlic butter will fill your kitchen.

  • Air Fryer Frozen Battered Mushrooms – Similar to when you cook frozen breaded mushrooms, but instead they are battered not breaded. They are even better than breaded and have a crunch on them like battered fish.

Crumbs. Breaded mushrooms always have a lot of excess crumbs that have come off during the freezing process.
Prep. Make sure you get rid of the excess otherwise it will clog up the air fryer and they will also burn while your breaded mushrooms cook.
Sauce. We used a mixture of tomato ketchup and mayonnaise to serve with our breaded mushrooms.

    • Hello Gabe,

      Thank you for your comment. After the page loads straight away just underneath the title you will see the word JUMP TO RECIPE if you click this guess what? It takes you straight to the recipe thus you not having to scroll down for 10 minutes.

      Happy holidays 🙂

  3. I agree with gabe, I had to read through 10 min of a way too drawn out stupid little story before I got to the recipe, which was about as vague as Bill Clinton’s explanation of his affair with Monica Lewinsky!! The author just drones on and on!!!!

    • Hi Stu,

      Thanks for the feedback. Again we have a JUMP TO RECIPE Button at the top of the article so just push the button which is on every recipe and it will take you past all the important info and land you on the recipe 🙂

    • Hi Patricia,

      Sometimes this can happen, there could be many reasons. Your air fryer might not be hot enough, the mushroom size of yours could be bigger than the ones we were using, the mushrooms you used might be carrying a lot of water. There is so many variables as to why mushrooms can turn out soggy 🙂

  4. What’s the temp setting for feringheit and time? I tried 360 for 7 minutes and got yucky soggy watery mushrooms. Wished I would have used the oven.

    • Hi Steo,

      The time and temp says it is 360f for 10 minutes depending on the size of the mushrooms. The time and temp we used worked great for our mushrooms and depends on the air fryer used if it goes up to 400f you can cook on 360f for 5 minutes then turn up to 400f for another 5 minutes and see if the mushrooms are crispy 🙂
