So a bunch of oyster mushrooms bloomed. Today I harvested some for lunch. I never have time to cook decent lunch so here is my quickly receipt for oysters. I make them up in the toaster oven.
Toaster oven oyster mushrooms
3 or 4 cups of oyster mushrooms (see picture)
2 tbs of butter
2 egg whites
Seasoned bread crumbs (I think my wife puts garlic powder black pepper and dried parsley in them)
Old bay 1 to 2 tbs
And some flower to toss the mushrooms in.
Melt the butter and add 2 egg whites.
Add the old bay to the bread crumbs.
Toss mushrooms in flower, then the egg wash, then the bread crumbs. Bake gills up at 450 for 10 min., flip then 10 min. more or till golden brown.
They taste awesome, I do not dip them in anything. I think most dips make oyster mushrooms taste like fish, and if I wanted fish, I would go fishing. I make oysters in just butter all the time. They have a unique taste. I have been told that the foraged oysters taste different from the store bought. I have never bought them, but I can see that being true. The foraged ones seem to all taste different from each other, some stronger tasting and some very mild.
