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!

    7-Layer beab dip is my favorite game day munchie!

  3. Georgia Pellegrini — September 22, 2011 @ 3:48 pm

    Mmm, this looks so up my alley. I love a portabello burger even more than a veggie burger.

    Bears Fuel

    Beef Hot Dogs (Red Hots preferred) with Bush’s Maple Cured Bacon beans on top.

    Now that’s tops.

    I love veggie burgers with cheese and homemade oven roasted potatoes!

  6. Sarah — September 22, 2011 @ 4:17 pm

    I’d have to say your pretzel bites have just topped our list! I made a mixed batch of regular and the pizza-stuffed pretzels for a get-together…and they were the biggest hit! So tasty – they almost didn’t make it to the party :)

    omg looks fabulous!

  8. joanne — September 22, 2011 @ 5:26 pm

    favorite game day snackeroo- spinach artichoke dip and tortilla chips–YUM!

  9. Emily — September 22, 2011 @ 5:50 pm

    I love to eat chili on game day with onions, cheese, and fritos! It’s so hearty and warm, which is what you need as the days get colder!!! The fan pack would be great – especially the bag with the speakers, very cool!

  10. Karin Burton — September 22, 2011 @ 5:59 pm

    My fav game day food is definitely wings! Although I’m really on a soft pretzel kick lately.

  11. Amanda — September 22, 2011 @ 6:20 pm

    Corn dip

  12. Kimi — September 22, 2011 @ 7:49 pm

    We always do appetizers and desserts. It’s been a tradition. It’s fun. I love the texas cavier

  13. Gee Collins — September 22, 2011 @ 7:56 pm

    My favorite is chili – hot and spicy with 7 beans and sausage.

    I just tasted Bush’s Beans recently. They put definitely gave my homemade ones a run for their money. Mmm…now I want the maple ones…

  16. Sandy — September 22, 2011 @ 9:10 pm

    My favorite is pizza, preferably on homemade pizza dough grilled to give it a nice char and smokey flavor. Then veggie toppings like artichoke hearts, zucchini, and lots of red onions. Add cheese, cover the grill to melt and I am ready to dig in.

  17. Debbie — September 22, 2011 @ 9:30 pm

    Chicken wings. I love their versatility – hot and spicy buffalo or gooey, sweet and sticky; boneless or drumettes.

  18. emily g — September 22, 2011 @ 10:17 pm

    Little smokies in BBQ….all the way!

  19. Jeanne — September 22, 2011 @ 10:43 pm

    love a portabello marinated in Good Seasons Italian dressing, made the lower fat way, and made with Balsamic vinegar!!! YUMMO!
    anyway, I love “Hot Chicken Wing” dip (here is a link for ONE recipe, there are many…..
    this is also super tasty to use as a topping for a pizza!

  20. Pennie — September 22, 2011 @ 11:59 pm

    Chips and dip (all types of chips and all types of dips;-)

  21. Marie — September 23, 2011 @ 1:11 am

    My favorite game day food is definitely buffalo wings with bleu cheese dressing!! NO celery for me though :)

  22. Julia Lynn — September 23, 2011 @ 3:06 am

    My favorite game day food has got to be these sausage dish that my friend Craig makes, it’s a bunch of different types of sausage cooked and cut up, then smothered with his homemade BBQ sauce. It’s SO good!!

  23. Amanda — September 23, 2011 @ 7:57 am


  24. Nicci — September 23, 2011 @ 8:52 am

    I make homemade jalapeno poppers with a chipotle parsley dipping sauce! So amazing! They are an easy finger food to pop in your mouth while obessing over football!

  25. JeannieC — September 23, 2011 @ 9:08 am

    If it is an early game nothing beats fresh bagels. If it is a later game must stick with the finger foods; wings, nachos, or homemade snack mix.

  26. Tricia — September 23, 2011 @ 12:12 pm

    I love velveeta/rotel dip with chips!
