This made a nice tasty lunch! I scaled this down for 1 person.I served this with grilled onions, mustard, and mayo on whole grain bread. I cooked the mushrooms in the frying pan so I could cook the onions with them. Loved the marinade. Thanks Paula!

This was very good! I cooked these in a grill pan on the stove, since it's the middle of winter right now, but they turned out very well and got to cook in the juices. This is a lunchtime keeper! Thanks.

Great! Late Memorial Day morning we suddenly decided to head to my uncle's for a cook out. I needed something I could bring for myself that would be quick and easy and meatless. And that would look good to all the "normal" people who like to tease me lol Threw the marinade together in a container, ran to the store for the mushrooms (just made it) and everything worked out splendidly. I love provolone, but with the balsamic it was perfect. I'll make these again. They're a breeze to throw together last minute, and everyone was rather impressed with how "burgery" they were. (only better!) Thanks Paula!
