75g (½ cup) plain flour
2 tsp mixed dried herbs
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1½ cups fresh breadcrumbs
Salt and pepper, to season

1In batches, heat 1 tbsp of oil over medium-low heat. Cook the mushrooms for 5 minutes each or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and allow to cool.
2Place 4 mushrooms with the underside facing up, top each with a mushroom, then top with the remaining mushrooms with the tops facing up.
3Place the flour, eggs and breadcrumbs into 3 separate bowls. Stir the mixed herbs through the flour and season well with salt and pepper. Dust the mushroom patties well in the flour, then dip in the eggs to coat, then repeat process and coat well in the breadcrumbs.
