Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Now I know what you're thinking.  If you're going to have a burger...then have a burger.  Right?  I mostly agree, but the portobello burger has its place too.  And the secret to this one is most definitely in the marinade.

It's nothing but simple, but the final product is, well nothing but tasty.  I don't remember where I found the recipe, so I'll include it at the end of this post.

We've made these before with delicious results, but I made a tiny mistake this time around.  The recipe calls for marinating the mushrooms for 2 hours, and I marinated them for more like 7 hours.  Oops!  The final product turned out a tad too salty because it sat for too long, so I recommend following the marinating time exactly.

We had a beautiful sunny day for grilling up our "burgers." I can't help but laugh at how damn pale we are these days.  The hubby jokes that he's so pale that he looks like a corpse that's been in the water for a few days.  I'm right there with him. - Gone are the days of the flip-flop feet tan!

A little bit of basting during the sear on the grill & the portobellos get nice and happy.

We served them on potato rolls with a little bit of melted mozzarella, leftover potato salad, and a side salad.  Delicioso!  It's an easy and flavorful meal that's just made for summer-time.  

And you know what makes it taste even better?  Following the marinating time of 2 hours.  Ha.  Scroll down for the recipe.

Ta-ta for now.
