Now for a really good burger! I don’t eat meat, but I do enjoy portobello burgers! They are thick, juicy, and delicious. We brushed our mushrooms with balsamic vinegar and grilled them to perfection. We used whole wheat buns and topped our burgers with roasted red peppers, onions, spinach, mozzarella cheese, spicy mustard, and tomato slices.


I could eat these burgers every day. Get wild and crazy and add whatever toppings you like. Sometimes I like to add pesto or use different cheeses. With the portobello as the base, you can’t go wrong!

  1. I absolutely love portabello mushrooms burgers. So good. Haven’t had one in a while and yours would be perfect right now!

  2. mmm. i am not a mushroom person, but i love the roasted red peppers on there. this sounds so flavorful!

  3. It looks like a regular burger with those grill marks. I’ve never tried one but I want to! It looks really good!

  4. Even though I am a meat eater I am not big into beef burgers so I would really enjoy this!!!!!

  5. I am not a fan of the mushroom but OMG my husband is, I think he would be all over this burger like white on rice…

  6. Congrats to the winner! Great burger but being a meat eater I just couldn’t envisage a burger without meat, hehehe!


  7. I just adore portabello mushrooms and your mushroom burger looks amazing!!

  8. Portobello mushroom burgers remind me of high school. I was a waitress during the summer and I’d always ask the chefs to make me one on my lunch break. Yum!

  9. Whoops a daisy, I ended up posting the same thing twice because I realised I was on the wrong blog addy, sorry!

  10. I'm making mine (as googling for recipes) with a little marinade of balsalmic vinegar, olive oil, a little water, pepper, cayenne pepper. I'm going to grill yellow squash too. Putting them on a fancy bun with goat cheese spread and roasted marinated tomatoes. Maybe some lettuce. Wish I had thought of making foccacia bread last night. That would be even better.

  11. I really like your website Maria and have enjoyed making many of the excellent recipes you’ve included on it. One thing I don’t like are all the comments from people who haven’t even made the dishes. It’s sort of annoying when I search for reviews and see that many of comments say something like “Mmmmm I’ll make these soon!”.
