This is a healthy switch from the traditional burger. These are really soooo good. There are three steps before the grilling but not hard steps.

Everyone loved this, even the so-called mushroom haters were happy. Great source of potassium (more than bananas which you need more in the summertime, or for those still growing (growing pains are a sign of not enough potassium)! I would like to try reducing the oil in the marinade next time. Also wood chips in the grill are important, the outside of the mushroom really takes on that flavor.
This was excellent! The only thing I did different was I marinated the lettuce with the onions for about 10 minutes and cooked them on a Foreman Grill. Definitely will make again - Better than some I've had in restaurants.
