Gluten Free Deep Fried Mushrooms

Happy Tuesday Wednesday, y’all! Did you check out the Matzo and Herbed Stuffed Tomatoes from guest post from Sam Monday? It’s a good one! Today, as part of our Passover recipe round-up, I’m guest posting my Gluten Free Deep Fried Mushrooms for Passover over on Sarah’s blog Crispy Bits & Burnt Ends. Check it out! Sarah blogs about her adventures (successes and failures) in cooking, plus fun details on planning her wedding. Though Sarah is not a MOT (member of the tribe) her fiance is, which inspired these Ko-Jew Kimchee Latkes from Hanukkah time. Love it!!

Since Texas is the land of chicken fried steak and breakfast tacos, I am always looking for ways to adapt some local classics into Passover friendly noshes. I made some deep friend matzo balls a few weeks back and they were AWESOME, so I decided to fry some more with these mushrooms. Delicious! You could serve them with a creamy or tomato dipping sauce.

    These look super yummy but can they be made Wheat Belly friendly? This is my first Pesach on the new diet my doctor has me on. I have to be GF, corn free, potato free and soy free. VERY hard during this season! Thank you so much!
