Yes. You would follow the same steps except instead of air frying, bake your mushrooms at 425 for about 20 minutes on a lined sheet pan.
WHAT AIR FRYER DO I USE?
I debated for a long time what air fryer to purchase. I settled on the Ninja Foodie XL and I am so happy with it. It is big enough to cook most things in one go around.
