Total Time:

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 8 portobello mushroom caps (4-inch), gills removed

  • 1 cup marinara sauce

  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • Crushed red pepper & fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat air fryer to 375°F.

  2. Whisk eggs in a small bowl. Combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan, garlic powder and salt in a large bowl.

  3. Dip tops of portobellos in the egg mixture, then in the panko mixture and press to adhere.

  4. Coat the air-fryer basket with cooking spray. Working in batches as necessary, arrange the portobellos, panko-sides up, in a single layer in the basket. Cook until the panko is browned, 4 to 5 minutes.

  5. Remove the portobellos from the air fryer and flip gill-sides up. Spoon on marinara and top with mozzarella. Return to the basket and cook until the cheese is melted, 4 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with crushed red pepper and basil, if desired.

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.)
