How to Cook Mushrooms in Air Fryer

  • Choose whatever fresh mushrooms you like. Most people tend to use button mushrooms, cremini mushrooms, portabella mushrooms, or oyster mushrooms. Cut them into bite sized pieces, usually halves or quarters. For larger mushrooms like portabellas, you might need to cut them up more.
  • Lightly oil the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper.
  • Add mushrooms to air fryer basket.
  • Air fry then shake and toss half way through cooking time.
  • Finish air frying after shaking and enjoy the garlic mushrooms!

Can You Use Canned Mushrooms?

No. We don’t recommend air frying canned mushrooms for this recipe instead of fresh mushrooms. The canned mushrooms have too much liquid are already softened, so they will come out mushy when cooked in this recipe.

What are the Best Air Fryers?

Here’s our extensive write up on Air Fryer World’s Best Air Fryer Guide. There’s so many on the market now. You just need to research and find the ones that fits your needs, capacity and style. We group the basket style air fryers into 2 main size groups: 3-4 qt. range & the 5-6 qt. range. There’s oven style and basket style. With so many to choose from, we highlight the ones that are most popular for small to medium sized families. Here’s our favorites:

Good Mid-Sized Air Fryers

“That’s a stylish Air Fryer” was said as we unboxed the Cosori. Beyond being stylish, it has cooked great. The basket is not as tall and wider than most in its size group, which is perfect. You’ll have a lot better results in an air fryer with single layered, spread out foods, then with ones piled high and thick.
The non-stick basket style(non-wire base)& smoothness of the basket tray is also great for clean up.

Has a great ceramic coated basket, one of the longest lasting we’ve used. Super powerful fan that will often cook recipes even faster than other air fryers. We initially returned our first one because we thought we wouldn’t like the basket style. After reconsidering, we bought another and are super glad we did. We love it’s basket and just a platform insert. One less bulky thing to wash. This is a great air fryer.

Simple functional panel. Solid basket design that is less likely to come unscrewed or break like other designs frequently do after a few months of repeated use. Great price for the size. They have several color options for the design-minded user.

Good Larger Air Fryers

This is quickly becoming one of our favorite larger basket style air fryers. Great basket size, good controls, cooks nice. Clean up is great. It has become one of our kitchen favorites.

Most of us are familiar with the Instant Pot Brand of pressure cookers. They now makeair fryersand it has become a regular in our kitchen. TheVortex plus 9-in-1is beyond the conventional air fryer. The “plus” boasts features beyond the hot circulating air: Broil, Bake, Dehydrate, Rotisserie, Roast and Re-heat.

    Can you use canned mushrooms? I was not sure if they would work the same?

    • Best Recipe Box Reply

      Hi Mercedes, we’re not sure if canned will work the same. We’re assuming it would take much longer as the canned mushrooms have more moisture to cook out. But if you try it and it turns out good, please let us know!

    I really love them… jumped right on them as soon as I saw the recipe but one question, and I did not search this out, are they fattening?

    Wonderful recipe. This followed the air fryer “christening” by way of sweet potato fries. I used cremini & morels (freshly foraged!) & they were exquisite! Yum!

    Absolutely loved these. One question though, are the nutrition values per serving or for the total recipe. Thanks.
