These hot little gems are part of the latest episode of RECIPE?! that went live on the YouTube channel today. It’s the segment where I just make something out of nothing and don’t really pay attention to what the actual recipe is. It’s cooking at its best, and everyone on the internet seems to identify with my off-the-cuff method of madness. Honestly, the best things I make often have NO recipe at all. Then I have to make it again so I can actually write it down for you guys. The life of a food blogger ain’t easy… in this particular case. I hate writing down what I’m doing when the creative juices are flowing in the kitchen!
Anyhoo, this recipe combines two existing recipes on the blog. I’ve double breaded oyster mushrooms with the cauliflower buffalo wing batter and the breading is basically the same breading from the naked chicken chalupa recipe.
Essentially, you could add whatever spices you wanted to the flour breading and it will probably turn out delicious! Just remember to be quite generous. But here I’ve listed what I did and tried to come up with a more seamless, less messy method of double battering for you. If you watch the above video, you’ll see what a hot mess it all was… I was acting fast!
Remember I’m guessing here, but a 1/2 lbs to 1 lbs of oyster mushrooms should be good. I used tiny pieces because they were intended to be for the oyster mushroom po boy sandwich, but for this particular use I would buy bulk mushrooms and look for the largest pieces you can. Clusters would also work well. The bigger the better. Then it’ll be juicier and look even more like authentic fried chicken!
