Top Review by Bergy

I have just finished a wonderful Brunch thanks to this Portobello Stack recipe. Very easy recipe if you follow the clear instructions, I made them up first thing in the AM and popped them in the oven 23 minutes before serving. Lovely blend of spices, soy & cheese with the tomatoe & mushroom. The oven time is just right the asparagus bits are hot but still crunchy. I cut back on the asparagus (4 spears for 2 portobello) because it was for a brunch sidedish if it were for a dinner sidedish I would use the whole amount. Beautiful presentation with the golden cheese finish. I served these with individual omelettes, M & M lean sauage BBQ'd, 12 grain toast. What a feast - this will be a definate repeat! Thankyou for a truly great recipe
