I have often seen this fancy take on a burger replacement in fine dining bar and grills and thought okay, we need to keep the wannabe vegans like me or my daddio happy. So what the heck am I talking about?
DADDIO PLEASING PORTABELLA BURGERS.
Remember I said a burger patty is 255 calories. A grilled portabella burger is 30 calories. Yes, that is a game changer. Get a grip folks if you don’t like mushrooms and are like eeeeww, you would be surprised at how this superfood funghi can truly taste like meat. Topped with some grilled goat cheese stuffed piquillo peppers and a side of our hot crashed sriracha taters and I promise you no complaints!

Any bun you want - Sometimes I use a flat ciabatta bread cut into sections and sliced then drizzled little olive oil on the halves and toasted on the grill. Today, just a nice bun from the local bakery.
In a large bowl, whisk together all marinade ingredients. Place mushroom caps into the bowl and toss. Let sit, occasionally turning, for 30 minutes. Preheat grill to about 400 degrees. Oil grates, then put mushrooms on for 5 to 7 minutes on each side. Create your winner dinner with suggested toppings above.
