The Glorious Burger Only Portobello Style.......Simply Delicious!

Posted on August 21, 2014 by Karen Schumann | 0 comments


I love my trips to the market.  I get a chuckle when I reach the checkout.  It is so much fun to watch the reaction to what is in my basket on the face of the checkout person.  I usually have a strange collection of things.  This week I had one potato that was just dug up and looked to good to pass up, one red onion, and one beautiful portobello mushroom. I knew that I had tomatoes and zucchini in my garden, so the most natural thing to do was to plan on making a mushroom burger topped with my garden fixings for dinner.  I love portobello mushrooms for numerous reasons.  For me, they can take the place of a hamburger or steak.  They have a intense flavor and a meaty texture so I really feel as though I am eating meat.  It is a wonderful substitution!  They are a great source of fiber and don't have many calories, which is a win, win situation for me.  Cooking is a breeze.  I just throw them on the grill with a little olive oil, salt, and freshly ground pepper and I'm done.  I layered mine with tomato, lightly grilled zucchini slices, and red onion.  It was out of this world!  A slice of smoked gouda or smoked mozzarella would have been a great addition too!  So the next time that you find yourself staring at a portobello mushroom in the market, buy it, experiment, and enjoy!  Life is filled with little surprises, let a portobello be one of those surprises. Happy Cooking!
