  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and garlic salt. Mix in egg and water until smooth.
  2. Heat the oil in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Test to see if oil is hot by frying a drop of batter. If it sizzles and floats to the top, the oil is ready.
  3. Dip mushrooms into the batter and then place in the hot oil. Fry a few at a time so they are not crowded, until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

We loved, Loved, LOVED these. This is a favorite of ours when we go out to restaurants and I really am glad that I "finally" found a recipe that is what we order out. Definate keeper. Thanks for the post.

First time I made these we didn't like the batter- too mushy. So the next time we dipped the mushrooms in beat egg and the rolled them in italian breadcrumbs (already has garlic and spices added in). They turned out wonderful- crunchy and tasty. Dipped in Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing.

Followed directions as written. Flavor was good but the batter never got crispy. It was more like a pancake-wrapped mushroom. I like a crunchy outer. I also missed the beer flavor so next time I'll look for a beer batter for my shrooms. Dh liked them as well but wished they were more crunchy.

I have made these twice now. The only people in the house who don't like them are the ones who don't like mushrooms! I added a little extra garlic salt. The only draw back was that I had to fry them for a long time to make them crisp enough. But towards the end of the batch they went faster, I guess because the oil got hotter and hotter. I loved these.

I had no problems with this recipe, I was worried they would come out mushy, but mine came out just fine. I, of course cooked them with my deep fryer at 350, for about 4 minutes. Will def use this recipe again..

Good, but does need more spice. Also used a deep fryer and fried until brown and crisp. Here is a dip I made: 1/4 cup mayo, 1 tblsp each lemon juice, horseradish, milk to desired consistency. Similar to dips we have tasted served with this dish. Will make this again with some cayenne and more garlic.

Followed recipes directions, and the end result was good. They were good for home cooked fried mushrooms. I had to add a bit of salt and garlic powder on top for more flavor though. Not bad. I'm going to continue to fool around with ideas on this one ;]

Very good recipe. I agree w/ alot of the other reviews, the mushrooms needed to be a tad bit crispier, so I added italian bread crumbs in with the flour. Made them taste AWESOME! Will definitely be making them again. Too easy and too tasty not to! :)
