Description

Yes, I’m the wife of a cattle rancher and I love these Portobello mushroom “burgers” more than life itself. Don’t tell Marlboro Man!

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Mayonnaise
  • 16 whole Basil Leaves
  • 8 whole Large Portobello Mushrooms
  • 1 cup Red Wine (optional)
  • Olive Oil For Brushing
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 4 slices Provolone Cheese
  • 4 slices Prosciutto
  • 4 whole Kaiser Rolls, Split
  • Extra Basil Leaves

Preparation

Rinse mushrooms thoroughly. Soak in red wine for 20 to 30 minutes (this is totally optional!)

Combine mayonnaise and basil in a food processor or blender. Pulse until basil is totally mixed in with the mayonnaise. Set aside.

Grill mushrooms in a grill pan or on a charcoal grill, brushing lightly with olive oil and sprinkling with salt and pepper. Melt provolone cheese over the four largest mushrooms. Remove mushrooms from grill and stack the other four mushrooms on top of the cheese-topped mushrooms.

Drizzle griddle with olive oil. Toast kaiser rolls over medium-low heat until very crispy and toasted.

Spread basil mayonnaise generously on both the top and bottom halves of the kaiser roll. Place the double-decker mushroom on the bottom half, then place the prosciutto slice on top. Finally, top with basil leaves and the other half of the roll. Press lightly so some of the juices from the mushrooms will run into the bottom half of the roll.

Serve immediately. Yum!

Would cream cheese work in place of mayo? I have a serious aversion to mayo (I can’t, I wont) but I love me some big grilled mushrooms!

Yum. Yum. Yum.

Seriously good – and to quote my stalwart meat-eater (a Greek man, almost as serious about meat as a cowboy I would bet!?! ) “That was delicious, I cant believe I haven’t just eaten something meaty”.

Ok – so there was some prosciutto – but normally meat is BEEF and no-less, but this was a resounding success!

Thank you indeed – a real triumph for this household :)

This is dinner tonight. With two minor adjustments.

1) Adding on caramelized onions

2) Serving it on the homemade rosemary focaccia bread I made yesterday.

Yes.

These went over well with the picky eaters in my family. And the second time, we used a very thin burger rather than two mushrooms, to change it up. Very versatile recipe!
