Fried Sheepshead Mushrooms Recipe

When a friend said she had a bunch of sheepshead muchrooms and wanted to know if I wanted some to fry up, you can bet I pounced on that one! Whether you call them Ramshead, Sheepshead, Maitake, or Hen of the Woods, it sure makes one yummy snack!

I admit, I am not the world’s biggest fan of mushrooms. It’s a texture thing. If they are small and mostly hidden, fine, but big hunks aren’t usually my style–until now.

This recipe for Fried Sheepshead Mushrooms is so good! The breading fries up crisp and golden. If I’m honest here, it was more like cauliflower in texture and I sure do love cauliflower!
