Grilled Portabello Mushroom Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Saturday, August 4, 2012
I can't brag enough about the taste and flavors that go into this sandwich. The marinade is a must. The end results are as good as this looks.  If you have never tried a portobello mushroom on the grill, your missing out..... honestly, calling all mushroom lovers,  go out and get some today!
You will be shocked on the steak flavored texture and taste of how delicious these are!

4 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 cloves minced garlic
3 tablespoon olive oil
Optional: 3 or 4 sliced rings of bell peppers
3 or 4 whole large portobello mushrooms cleaned
Provolone Cheese
French Rolls
Romaine Lettuce

Carefully scrape the insides of the mushroom gills out clean with the back of a spoon. Washing under warm water. In a bowl to fit the marinade and mushrooms, add all ingredients with the addition of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste ( I add a pinch of cayenne too). MARINATE FOR at least 1 HOUR or overnight : DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.

Heat grill on high heat FOR 10 MINUTES.
Grill mushrooms on both sides for around 5 minutes on each side along with the pepper rings (you can marinate these if you prefer).

Serve in a hamburger bun with provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, peppers (if using) add some Italian dressing on top.
