These air fryer mushrooms are so delicious!

These air fryer mushrooms are the best mushrooms I have ever eaten in my life! They are juicy with crispy edges, cook in just 15 minutes or less, and taste absolutely incredible.

The air fryer is one of those appliances that has genuinely surprised and delighted me how much I use and love it.

I am always thinking up new ways to make recipes in it. These air fried mushrooms are bursting with flavor and so delectable you will want to eat the whole batch yourself!

Air Fryer Frozen Vegetables and Air Fryer Frozen Cauliflower are two of my top made recipes in our day to day life.

Air Fryer Quesadillas are the best easy dinner when I am running short on time.

ingredients needed to make air fryer mushrooms

How to make air fryer mushrooms

Step 1: Start by washing and drying the baby bella mushrooms. It’s important to dry them well to get as much moisture off as possible.

Step 2: cut each mushroom in half. For larger mushrooms, you can cut them into fourths. We just want them all to be around the same size.

Step 3: Next, it’s time to toss with all of the seasonings that will make them taste delicious! Give them a stir until they are all coated in yumminess.

  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • salt
  • olive oil
  • Worcestershire sauce (I used vegetarian)

Step 4: Place the mushrooms in a single layer in the air fryer basket. For this recipe, I used a 6 quart air fryer, so if you are using a smaller one you will need to work in batches.

How long to cook mushrooms in the air fryer

Step 5: Turn the air fryer to 400 degrees and cook the mushrooms for 10 minutes. Give them a good shake and stir around the mushrooms so that all sides can get nice and done.

Cook for up to another 5 minutes, until browned on all sides. Be sure to note that every air fryer cooks differently, so keep an eye on these towards the end to avoid burning!

Serve with dinner as a side dish, or simply eat them right out of the air fryer. My husband and I ate the entire batch ourselves and oh my goodness I have never tasted such delicious mushrooms.

These easy air fryer mushrooms will be your new go to vegetable side dish. So flavorful and the most delicious juicy texture!


  • 16 oz baby bella mushrooms, washed and dried
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
  • ¾ teaspoon salt


  1. Wash and thoroughly dry the baby bella mushrooms
  2. Cut each mushroom in half, or into quarters for very large ones
  3. Place cut mushrooms in a bowl and toss with olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce and salt
  4. Place mushrooms in the air fryer basket in a single layer
  5. Air fry at 400 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes, checking to shake at least twice. I cooked mine for 10 minutes, shaked and stirred, then cooked an additional 5 minutes until crisped on the edges

This recipe was made using a 6 quart air fryer. If you are using a smaller air fryer, you will need to make the recipe in batches so that the mushrooms can cook in a single layer.

Every air fryer cooks differently, so keep a close eye on the mushrooms at the end of cook time to avoid burning.

These turned out delicious! I added panko and I used Pickapeppa 'hot' sauce instead of Worcestershire (it's mild, not spicy at all). SO glad I found this recipe.

I was pleasantly surprised by how well this recipe turned out, because the last time I tried cooking mushrooms in my air fryer, I ended up with half an inch of water in the bottom of the basket and soggy mushrooms on top of the grate, and I had to finish cooking those in a frying pan. I'm not sure what I did wrong previously, but following this recipe, I got nice, thin, chewy, tasty mushroom slices with a lovely crisp around the edges. I substituted minced onion and garlic for the powders, and General Tso sauce for the Worcestershire Sauce and salt.

These were fantastic and so easy! I usually over or undercook them on the stove, but your air fryer instructions were spot on. Thank you!

Needed a quick recipe to use up some white button mushrooms a few days ago, and found yours. Absolutely great! I did modify it slightly so that I could cook it with a chicken breast (380f instead of 400f, and a few more minutes). But, it turned out pretty well. I'll definitely make it again.

So delicious! I bought a huge container of marked down mushrooms at my grocer and needed to cook them all at once, so this was perfect. I literally just threw them in a bowl and ate them straight, but my husband was stealing some to throw in a sandwich he was eating at the time. These would make for a perfect vegan philly cheese steak sandwich, or in a ton of recipes as a meat replacement. Way easier than trying to perfectly caramelize mushrooms in the pan, just season and throw them in the air fryer. Thank you!
