Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Scrape gills from mushroom caps.
  2. Combine 3 tablespoons vinegar, oil, and next 3 ingredients in a shallow dish or large zip-top plastic freezer bag; add mushrooms, turning to coat. Cover or seal, and chill 1 hour, turning occasionally. Remove mushrooms from marinade, discarding marinade.
  3. Grill mushrooms, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until tender. Remove mushrooms from grill, and immediately sprinkle undersides evenly with blue cheese.
  4. Stir together mayonnaise and 1 teaspoon vinegar. Spread mixture evenly on cut sides of buns; place lettuce, mushrooms, and tomato slices on bottom halves of buns, and cover with tops. Serve immediately.

The marinade and grilling make the portabellas so delicious. Even though I love blue cheese, I think it and the toppings almost distract from that wonderfulness. Still a very good burger though!

Now that's a burger! Ran out of lettuce, so I used half basil leaves and half lettuce. Made sure the garlic was good and toasty/burnt like I like it.. and marinated (in a ziplock)the caps overnight instead of an hour (since I had to go to the store the next day for the cheese). Grilled the caps & buns on an iron Lodge grill.
