  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 pound fresh white button mushrooms
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup water


  • First, pour the oil into a large saucepan or deep fryer to a depth of 3 to 4 inches. Heat the oil to 350 degrees.
  • Gently clean the mushrooms with a damp paper towel. If the stems are very large (greater than 3/4 inch), you can trim them. If the mushrooms are small, there is no need to trim off the stem.
  • Combine the flour, salt, and pepper in a bowl, and stir.
  • In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk and water.
  • Dredge the mushrooms in the seasoned flour, shaking off the excess, and then dip them in the buttermilk. Dredge them in the flour again, knocking off the excess flour.
  • Place the mushrooms gently into the hot oil, and cook them until they are golden brown. It will take about 2 to 3 minutes for the mushrooms. Then drain them on a wire rack.
  • Serve with your favorite sauce.


  • Buttermilk always makes a nice thick batter. This same batter could be used to make chicken fried steaks, chicken tenders, or onion rings.
  • You could substitute flour for breadcrumbs for an extra crunch.
