Portabella Stacks

"This is so delicious. Ingredients are approximate because everyone likes something different. Thin to me is too thin for others. So please just use your judgment according to your own taste. You are going to love this!"

Ready In:




  • Scrape out the dark gills on the underside of each mushroom.
  • Rinse lightly under water and wipe with paper towel.
  • Thinly slice the eggplant and sprinkle with garlic salt.
  • Put the mushrooms in an oiled baking dish.
  • Drizzle with a few sprinkles of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
  • Top with a couple eggplant slices.
  • Add a basil leaf.
  • Add mozzarella slice.
  • Add a slice of red onion.
  • Add a basil leaf.
  • Add a slice of tomato.
  • Add a basil leaf.
  • Repeat layers and top with Asiago cheese.
  • At this point I cut a wooden skewer in half and poke it down the center of each mushroom stack to hold them in place.
  • Drizzle a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar (not a lot or it will sweat too much).
  • Bake in 400° for 20 minutes.

  1. These are amazingly easy and delicious! As written or ad-libbed! I use eggplant because the shape is more cohesive to the rest of the stack. Side of pasta with garlic, Italian parsley, and evoo, manga; bon appetit!
  2. These are great! Fun to put together, and all of the veggies really come together with the basil and cheeses. I used zucchini sprinkled with some garlic powder. Thanks for sharing!
  3. I had all of these ingredients on hand so I decided to try it. I loved it, but my husband wasn't too interested in it at all. I ended up eating his too! That's the only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
  4. Absolutely Awesome!!!! I will DEFINITELY be making this again.. Thanks for posting it on Zaar.


Hmm... let's see.. Cooking is my passion... I'm retired now and able to cook and bake every day. I think the most helpful cookbook that I own would have to be The New Doubleday Cookbook. I just love kitchen gadgets and have many of them. Besides cooking I love to sing and belong to the Sweet Adeline's International. I get very annoyed at people who are LATE! I think it's just as easy to be late as it is to be on time. Well.. thanks to all of you at Zaar for all of your terrific recipes and ideas that bring my friends and family much joy and happiness. They get to try all of my new recipes.
