Nutrition Profile:


  • Cooking spray

  • 4 large portobello mushrooms or portobello caps

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 large egg whites

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • ¾ cup panko breadcrumbs

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • ¾ teaspoon crushed dried rosemary

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • ¼ cup buttermilk

  • 1 teaspoon dried chives

  • 1 teaspoon dried dill


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Place a wire rack on a large rimmed baking sheet; coat with cooking spray. If using whole portobellos, twist off and discard stems; use a spoon to scrape off the brown gills from the undersides of the caps. Slice the caps 1/2 inch thick.

  2. Spread flour in a shallow dish. Lightly whisk egg whites and water in another shallow dish. Combine panko, Parmesan, rosemary, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, salt and pepper in a third shallow dish.

  3. Dredge the mushroom slices in the flour, shaking off excess. Next, dredge in the egg white mixture. Finally, dredge in the panko mixture. Transfer to the prepared rack. Coat on all sides with cooking spray. Bake until browned and crispy, 15 to 18 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise, buttermilk, chives, dill and the remaining 1 teaspoon garlic powder in a bowl. Serve the sauce with the mushrooms.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
