Air Fryer Parmesan Mushrooms

Air Fryer Parmesan Mushrooms
  • 1 pound of mushrooms (such as button mushrooms or cremini mushrooms)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (panko or regular)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooking spray (for the air fryer basket)


  1. Clean the mushrooms: Start by cleaning the mushrooms. You can do this by wiping them with a damp paper towel or gently rinsing them and patting them dry. Remove the stems if desired.
  2. Prepare the coating: In a shallow bowl, combine the grated Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine.
  3. Coat the mushrooms: Toss the clean mushrooms in the olive oil to coat them evenly. Then, roll each mushroom in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to make sure the coating sticks.
  4. Preheat the air fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  5. Arrange the mushrooms: Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Place the coated mushrooms in a single layer in the basket, making sure they are not overcrowded. You may need to cook them in batches if your air fryer is small.
  6. Air fry the mushrooms: Cook the mushrooms at 375°F (190°C) for 10-12 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Be sure to shake the basket or flip the mushrooms halfway through the cooking time to ensure even browning.
  7. Serve: Once the mushrooms are done, remove them from the air fryer and let them cool for a few minutes. You can serve them with a dipping sauce of your choice, such as marinara sauce or ranch dressing.
