Air Fryer Frozen Breaded Mushrooms. Do you love breaded mushrooms and would love to know how to cook air fryer breaded mushrooms from frozen? Then stick around and let me share with you what it is like to cook crispy breaded mushrooms from frozen in the air fryer.
Air Fryer Frozen Breaded Mushrooms
If you’re following our weekends of frozen food in the air fryer, then you will have had some fantastic treats so far. We had air fryer frozen sweet potato fries last Saturday, air fryer frozen sweet potato wedges last Sunday and today it is the turn of air fryer frozen breaded mushrooms.
We we’re recently recipe testing some mushrooms for an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker recipe (it was our Instant Pot pork chops with mushroom gravy) and Dominic being the mushroom fan in our house, pointed out that we had never done breaded mushrooms in the air fryer and it was a must.
Dominic used to work as a chef in the pubs in England and breaded mushrooms was a regular thing on the menu. It was one of those side dishes that you often had as a starter or as a side dish with some steak. Nearly always it came with some tomato ketchup.
I am sure he probably had a few breaded mushrooms when he was supposed to be working, after all the free food was always the biggest perk of the job.
Why Air Fryer Frozen Breaded Mushrooms
I often see suggestions for cooking breaded mushrooms in the oven. But there is a big problem there and that is that they are often soggy and dry. The oven steals any moisture and they never have that lovely pub crispy texture.
Plan B is always to deep fry your frozen breaded mushrooms. Of course, they taste amazing like this, but seriously how bad is that for you? But the air fryer is like being hypnotised. You think they have been deep fried as they taste that good, but really, they have been air fried which is the same in calories as being oven baked. Or as I like to put it its like eating fries for the same calories as a jacket potato!
Air Fryer Frozen Breaded Mushroom Brands
We used the brand Iceland for our frozen breaded mushrooms. It is part of their American style range and gives you a 280g bag of breaded mushrooms.
My first thought was how small the bag of frozen mushrooms was for the money. But when you consider that breaded mushrooms are quite big, then you realise you are getting quite a lot to put in the air fryer.
We found that from brand to brand they are very similar. So, if you have a different brand of frozen breaded mushrooms then don’t worry, simply follow the instructions below as they are universal for all brands.

- Open the breaded mushrooms bag into a mixing bowl or any large bowl.
- Grab the breaded mushrooms one by one making sure the excess breadcrumbs stay in the bowl and place them into the air fryer.
- Discard of the excess crumbs.
- Cook the breaded mushrooms in the air fryer, for 10 minutes at 180c/360f.
- Serve with your favourite sauce and a sprinkling of basil.
Breaded mushrooms always have a lot of excess crumbs that have come off during the freezing process. Make sure you get rid of the excess otherwise it will clog up the air fryer and they will also burn while your breaded mushrooms cook. We used a mixture of tomato ketchup and mayonnaise to serve with our breaded mushrooms.
