How to cook mushrooms in the air fryer

Air frying mushrooms is really easy!

  • Air fryer mushrooms temperature: 400F
  • Air fryer mushrooms cooking time: 10 minutes

All you need to do is chop the mushrooms, toss them with olive oil, salt and pepper and other preferred seasonings and air fry for 10 minutes at 400F, shaking the air fryer basket halfway through.  If you buy pre-sliced mushrooms, it will save you a chopping step :)

Can you air fry whole mushrooms instead of sliced? Sure! Just increase the cooking time for whole mushrooms by 5 minutes, then check to see if they are ready (if they need more time, add another 5 minutes).

  1. I LOVE mushrooms in making these tonight in one air fryer and making your air fryer meatballs in my other air fryer! In a hoagie roll with cheese. 1 question how lean is the ground beef in the meatballs?

  2. 5 stars
    I added about 2 tbsp of supermarket-grade balsamic vinegar and let them marinate an hour before air-frying them. With the extra liquid, they probably needed 11 or 12 minutes instead of 10, which I will try next time. When they came out, I drizzled them with about 1 tbsp of high-quality aged balsamic, and they were DELICIOUS.
