Two Peas and Their Pod

Portobello Mushroom Burgers & A Giveaway

Last weekend we had a tailgating party. Josh was in charge of the grill and made Bacon Wrapped Bratwursts and Portobello Mushroom Burgers. We wanted to make sure we had something to eat for the meat lovers and veggie lovers. Josh enjoyed a Bacon Wrapped Brat while I enjoyed a juicy Portobello Burger. If you haven’t tried a portobello burger, I don’t know what you are waiting for. Portobello Burgers are thick, chewy, and filling. They make a great meatless meal, but even if you aren’t a vegetarian, you can still enjoy these tasty burgers.

Josh lightly brushed the portobello mushrooms with olive oil and seasoned them with salt and pepper. He grilled each side of the mushrooms for a few minutes. When the mushrooms were almost done, he placed a piece of provolone cheese on top of each burger and continued cooking until the cheese was melted.

I placed my cheesy portobello burger in a ciabatta bun and topped it with lettuce, tomato, red onion, and mustard. Of course the pregnant lady had to have a pickle on these side..ha! We also served up Bush’s Vegetarian Baked Beans to go with the portobello burgers. I love that they have a vegetarian option. They went perfectly with my portobello burger.

Portobello burgers are satisfying, delicious, and perfect for game day. Give them a try at your next tailgating party!

    My favorite Game Day food is/are (it’s a tie) buffalo chicken dip and/or Velveeta/Rotel/hot sausage dip. Both with tortilla chips. I think I need to make some this weekend now that I’m thinking about it!

  4. Bestfoodies — September 21, 2011 @ 10:59 am

    Love mushroom burgers, my favorite was at a local restaurant that closed and haven’t found one as good since so making my own seems to be a great idea! Anything to do with mushrooms is appealing to me as it is my favorite ingredient to add to just about anything!

  5. Jennifer — September 21, 2011 @ 11:07 am

    My fav game day food is a hamburger bun topped with tomato sauce, chopped green bell pepper, and shredded cheese. You stick it in the oven and cook it until the cheese is melted. Delicious, fast, and easy.

  6. Kristine Bunting — September 21, 2011 @ 11:16 am

    We love 7 layer dip! Thanks for an awesome post!

  7. Amy — September 21, 2011 @ 11:21 am

    My favorite game day meal is BBQ pulled pork sandwiches and crock pot baked beans! My friends love it when I make that meal and invite them over…game or no game!

  14. Denise — September 21, 2011 @ 11:28 am

    We love to bar-b-q on game day. For the U/Y game, we served up applewood smoked chicken, rolls, Bush’s beans – kicked up with a little applewood smoked bacon, pepper, parsley and dark brown sugar. My husband loves the beans straight out of the can but since we were entertaining I modified them a bit.

    Just found your blog and am so excited to get cooking!

  15. Lisanne — September 21, 2011 @ 11:30 am

    I absolutely love a good Hebrew National hotdog grilled over the open flames! It is the only time I eat them, so I thoroughly enjoy every bite. :)

    Dips are definitely high on the game day list – I love jalapeño popper dip although it is a bit heavy. I have collected a few recipes that I’m dying to try, I also love hummus. Nacho’s are also great snack-food.
