Portabella Mushroom Burgers

Lou Kostura


I saw a recipe similar to this, made quite a few changes and made it my own. Love these on a hot summer day, but good year round. I also roast my own peppers as they have much more flavor than the bottled ones, however if you are in a hurry or don't want to take the extra steps to roast by all means use the easy way and buy the bottled peppers.

How to Make Portabella Mushroom Burgers


  • 1Roast red and pasilla peppers until skins are blackened, then place in paper bag for 30 minutes to steam. Optional- Bottled Roasted Red Bell Peppers
  • 2clean stems and fins from mushrooms. I use a teaspoon and carefully remove the fins. Freeze the stems to use in stock later.
  • 3brush mushrooms liberally with olive oil both sides
  • 4after steaming peppers, clean skins, seeds and stems from peppers ( DO NOT RINSE IN WATER THIS WASHES ALL THE OILS AND FLAVOR DOWN THE DRAIN)
  • 5Place mushrooms on grill cap side up until they start to warm through. Flip over and fill inside with a blend of both roasted peppers
  • 6when mushrooms are warm to touch add 2 slices of swiss cheese to each ( I use Alpine Lace which is a low fat cheese )
  • 7Toast onion rolls while cheese melts,
  • 8Add fresh cilantro to bun, place, burger, ENJOY
