I cannot get enough of air fryer recipes and these portobello mushrooms were next on my list!

They absolutely did not disappoint and were some of the most delicious mushrooms I have ever eaten.

Making mushrooms in the air fryer is a game changer. All of the extra liquid evaporates much quicker and you are left with tender juicy and crispy edged mushrooms that taste amazing!

We have made and loved many air fryer recipes like air fryer quesadillas, air fryer broccoli, air fryer potatoes, air fryer frozen cauliflower, and air fryer mushrooms.

All you need is a few simple ingredients to make these mushrooms and they are probably already in your pantry!

How to make portobello mushrooms in the air fryer

Spray your air fryer basket with olive oil spray.

Step 2: Use a basting brush to spread the sauce over the outer caps of the mushrooms, then place it gill side up in the air fryer,

Use the remaining sauce over the top of the gill side.

Step 3: Air fry the portobello mushrooms at 400 degrees for 5 minutes.

Flip them over and air fry an additional 4-7 minutes, until browned and juicy.

how to serve

Serve these any way you like! You can eat them whole or cut into strips.

These portobellos would make a great topping on your dinner protein, or serve it alone as a meatless main dish!

These remind me of steakhouse mushrooms and the Worcestershire sauce gives them so much flavor.

You could also serve these as a portobello burger for a steakhouse style vegetarian main dish!

These would make great mushroom “steaks.”
