5. Fried Mushrooms

This air-fried mushroom recipe from My Healthy Dish makes a great starter for you and a few friends. It takes a little more work than the other TikTok recipes, but it’s totally worth it in the end.

Directions:

  • Crack an egg into a bowl and add a few drops of Sriracha sauce.
  • In another bowl, add flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika.
  • Dip the mushrooms between the flour and egg wash to coat them twice. After the second dip in the egg wash, roll the mushrooms in panko breadcrumbs.
  • Spray the inside of your air fryer with cooking spray.
  • Place the mushrooms inside the air fryer and cook for 10 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • While your mushrooms cook, add chives to sour cream to make a yummy dipping sauce. When your ‘shrooms are done, get snacking!
