Tempura Fried Mushrooms

Do you love fried food as much as I do? I don’t know what it is about fried food that I find so irresistible. I mean it’s greasy and unhealthy, so why can’t I leave it alone? No matter how hard I try, I just can’t say no to french fries, fried onion rings, or any other vegetable that can be fried. And don’t even get me started on desserts that are fried. Talk about dangerous! All that I know is that frying makes everything taste better!

Cliff received a mini deep fryer for Christmas last year from my mom. So far we have used it to make buffalo chicken wings, mozzarella sticks, and most recently we made tempura fried mushrooms. We try not to use the fryer too often, but let’s be honest, fried food is so good! Sometimes you just have to make an exception. These mushrooms are definitely worth the calories. They are especially great game day snacks. I recommend pairing the fried mushrooms with ranch sauce.
