I’m one of those people who believe that any food breaded and fried is just absolutely delicious. And these Baked & Breaded Mushrooms are no exception. But my version uses Panko, is baked, not fried, and is just as good, if not WAY better than the greasy fried version. The delicate flavor of the mushroom is not lost, and the crisp, Parmesan seasoned Panko breading is oh so perfect. I served these with a side of low calorie Ranch dressing, and it was AMAZING. Each serving is just 3 Points +, which is a lot better than traditional fried breaded mushrooms. You can make these as a Weight Watchers appetizer for a party or potluck, or just serve them up as a late night snack for when the fried greasy food craving kicks in. These will also make a great addition to my collection of Weight Watchers Super Bowl Recipes! Though, I have a feeling that during football season this year, these Baked and Breaded Mushrooms are going to become a regular game day snack long before the Super Bowl. Enjoy!
