The 49ers are headed to New Orleans next week, so in their honor I developed this snack-sized, vegetarian version of one of the Big Easy's staple foods. Po' Boys are usually served on a long French hoagie roll stuffed with fried seafood, usually oysters or shrimp, and topped with a mayonnaise sauce called remoulade. Instead of oysters I used oyster mushrooms, gave them a typical coating treatment of cornmeal and spices, and then sautéed them in a small amount of peanut oil. My smoky remoulade uses a mix of low fat mayo and Greek yogurt to trim the fat so you don't feel so piggy when you are watching the pigskin next week. Go Niners!

  • 2 tsp garlic powderSandwich:2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal

  • 1 tsp smoked or mild paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 3/4 lb oyster mushrooms
  • 4 Tbsp peanut or canola oil, divided
  • 16 slider buns, toastedSliced pickles, for garnish

Preparation

  1. To make the remoulade dressing, whisk together all the ingredients and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with 1/4 cup water. In a separate larger bowl, mix together flour, cornmeal, SnP, garlic powder, paprika and cayenne. Pick over the mushrooms and break up clusters so you have bite-sized pieces.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 2 Tbsp oil over medium heat. Coat half the mushrooms in the egg mixture and then in the cornmeal mixture. Put into the hot skillet in an even layer and cook 4-5 minutes on each side until browned. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and cool. Repeat with remaining mushrooms.
