A Mushroom Fry (called a Fried Shroom in Paper Mario, a Shroom Fry in the GameCube version of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, and a Fried Shroom Plate in Super Paper Mario) is an item found in the first three games of the Paper Mario series. It is one of the most basic dishes that can be made in the games.

Tayce T. and Zess T. can create a Mushroom Fry by cooking a Mushroom or a Super Mushroom. The item heals six HP and two FP, and can be sold for five coins. Cooking a Mushroom in this way will improve the item, but cooking a Super Shroom is a little more questionable. The resultant item will heal less HP than a Super Shroom, though it will heal FP; something the Super Shroom did not do.

Once Mario has given Zess T. the Cookbook for her "Seeking legendary book!" trouble, a Dried Mushroom can also be used to cook a Mushroom Fry. Since Dried Mushrooms only cost two coins from west Rogueport, Mario will make a profit of three coins per Shroom Fry if he sells them. However, attempting to cook a Dried Mushroom before giving Zess T. the Cookbook will result in a Mistake instead of a Mushroom Fry.

In Super Paper Mario, Saffron can cook a Fried Shroom Plate for Mario if he gave her either a Shroom Shake or a Volt Shroom. Using it restores 15 HP and cures poison. It can be sold for 35 coins.
