Preparing breaded mushrooms is easy, but here are a few ideas to make it easier for you…
- First take care of the salad and the side dishes. Wash and dry the salad.
- Wash and dry the salad ingredients and cut them as desired.
- Prepare a tomato concassée if you serve this dish as a starter.
- It is best to clean the mushrooms with a knife and not wash them.

The following three points are important:
