I have been having these for a snack lately. I like having something to replace chips, popcorn, candy... the hand to mouth kind of snack.


Take canned (or jarred) slice mushrooms and drain.
Lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet, sprayed with Pam. I like to line mine with foil for easy clean up.
Season as desired. (I am using Spikes right now but have done Mrs. Dash and my mom likes garlic powder. Or you can make plain.)
Broil for about 12 minutes.
Turn the mushrooms over.
Broil for about 7 more minutes.
Enjoy!You will need to play with the cooking times. This is working for me now; I like my mushrooms a bit crispy but still chewy. You may prefer crisper or less so. I fill my whole cookie sheet because they shrink up quite a bit while cooking and I figure it is vegetables so more is better:)

Sorry that I don't know the answer. I suspect large batches won't work well because you really need to make them in a single layer with this technique. Bo I fill my whole cookie sheet and eat it in one serving. BUT - my mom makes them by slowly baking at like 200 degrees for hours, you might be able to do more than one pan at a time with that approach. I have never saved them... I eat them right away. I hope you like them!

this is a great recipe! thanks for posting.... and i think if the mushrooms are refrigerated, they will not retain their crispiness!
