BALSAMIC PORTABELLA BURGERS

Simple and Delicious grilled Portabella mushroom burgers that will turn any meat lover into a mushroom lover! 

Happy Memorial Day! I cant believe summer is upon us. This year is just flying by. For me summer means it’s time to gather your friends and family, eat outdoors and BBQ. To kick things off I love to start with the good ole burger but instead of meat I am using marinated portabella mushrooms. They are meaty, juicy and full fill all your burger needs.

The key to this dish is to marinate the mushrooms in a simple balsamic mixture for 30 minutes prior to grilling. Make sure your grill is nice and hot then grill the mushrooms cap side down for 5-7 minutes. make sure you get those tasty grill marks.

Toppings!! every great burger needs delicious toppings. Two of my favorites are caramelized onions with fennel and fire roasted tomato ketchup. The caramelized onion mixture gives a sweet earthiness to the mushrooms and the ketchup brings the acidic note to balance everything out. These burgers are delicious bun-less or wrapped in a toasty ciabatta roll.
