At the heart of this culinary masterpiece are two key ingredients: mushrooms and Gorgonzola cheese. While any type of mushroom can be used, selecting varieties with a sturdy texture like button mushrooms or portobellos ensures that they hold up well to the frying process. Gorgonzola cheese, renowned for its tangy flavor and creamy consistency, adds a luxurious touch to the dish. The marriage of these two ingredients creates a harmonious blend of textures and tastes that elevate the humble mushroom to new heights.


Creating Fried Gorgonzola Mushrooms is a relatively simple yet rewarding process. 

  • Begin by cleaning the mushrooms and removing stems from mushrooms. 
  • The mushroom stems will leave a cavity in the caps that’s perfect for stuffing!
  •  Place mushroom caps on a separate plate. 
  • Stuff the Gorgonzola into the mushroom cavities, carefully piling it as high as you can. Do your best to get as much into each mushroom as you can.
  • Beat the eggs and prepare the breadcrumbs. 
  • Dip each mushroom slice into the egg mixture, following with breadcrumbs, ensuring it’s evenly coated. Repeat with each mushroom to make sure the gorgonzola doesn’t drip out.
  • Heat vegetable oil and cook 2 minutes on each side.
  • Once fried to perfection, place the mushrooms to a plate and serve with potatoes and a bowl of salad.
