Both my husband and I love fried mushrooms, but we were delighted to have a baked version to try. I liked them because the Panko breading makes a lighter covering; you get all the delightful mushroom flavor. I doubled this recipe somewhat. I used 16 oz of mushrooms so my husband and I would not have to fight over them. I used 2 eggs with a bit of water. I wasn’t sure that would be a good swap, but it worked. I did not think the Parmesan cheese needed to be doubled. I did 4 Tbs, but my husband could not taste the Parmesan, so I guess I should have used more. I did 2 tsp garlic powder. It was easy to put together. Also, I had recently watched a video with a chef who did not recommend washing mushrooms. He wiped the dirt off and cut off the ends of the stem. I used an appetizer fork–the little 3-pronged one–to make it easier to dip the mushrooms into the egg and crumbs.

It was a lot of standing for me. I don’t know what they were counting with the preparation time. My oven heated and waited for me to finish up. I bet you my prep time was closer to 20 minutes.

I hope when you try them you enjoy them as much as we did. They will be a regular snack food or side dish.
