A delicious summertime sandwich with crunchy, well-seasoned mushrooms and a tangy, creamy sauce. This reinvented Louisiana classic swaps out the oysters for White Button mushrooms that emulate the texture of the original recipe. The mushrooms are baked instead of fried and the sandwich is loaded with creamy remoulade sauce spread on toasty, buttery hoagie rolls and served with crunchy lettuce.

To Make the Mushrooms:

  2. Put mushrooms in a medium bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together flour and almond milk until smooth. Pour over the mushrooms and toss until evenly coated.
  4. In a medium bowl, add bread crumbs, nutritional yeast, and spices. Mix with a spoon briefly.
  5. Transfer the coated mushrooms to a large freezer bag. Pour bread crumbs into a freezer bag, close, and shake around until mushrooms are coated thoroughly with bread crumbs.
  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Spread mushrooms out on a baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake 30-35 minutes, until mushrooms are crispy and golden brown.
