WHAT TO SERVE WITH AIR FRYER MUSHROOMS
The great thing about mushrooms is that they are delicious as a side dish for almost any recipe! I love to serve Balsamic Air Fryer Mushrooms with a salad for a vegetarian meal, or serve them along side of a nice steak or pork chop.
TIPS FOR MAKING MUSHROOMS IN THE AIR FRYER
Try to use mushrooms that are all the same size. This will help them to cook evenly. Large mushrooms can be cut in half of quarters if needed.
If your mushrooms are very small, you may need to cut down the cooking time. Check them after 8 minutes to be sure, then cook for 2 more minutes at a time until they are done.
Marinate the mushrooms for at least 30 minutes for the best flavor. You could marinate these for up to 4 hours if you want.
We prefer to remove the stems of the mushrooms before cooking. Sometimes the stems are too chewy for our liking, but you can leave them on if you like them.
