How to Serve Mushroom Burgers:

Grilled portobello mushroom burgers can be plated as a sandwich complete with bun and side.  In burger form, it makes the perfect vegetarian option at a cook out.  Or, put the marinated portobello on top of a regular ground beef burger for mega flavor!  Another great way to serve your grilled portobello mushroom is as a steak with no bun for a tasty low-carb and meatless version.

    • Great sides: Fries are a classic choice with any burger and this portobello burger is no exception! Garlic Sweet Potato fries are my favorite!
    • Toppings: Cheese, arugula, tomato, red onion, and mayonnaise are great toppings to start with!
    • Sauce: Spread pesto or garlic aioli all over your toasted bun or your make your favorite dipping sauce.
    • Cheese: Different types of cheese will give this burger a different personality. A sharp cheddar would be fantastic but really any melting cheese gives this burger the perfect ooey gooey element it needs.
    • Double stack: Double stack the mushrooms with an extra layer of cheese for a more hearty burger that will satisfy even the biggest appetite.

Storing Portobello Burgers:

This family favorite is easy to store for amazing leftovers!  Once the mushrooms have cooled completely store in an air tight container or resealable plastic bag within 2 hours.  They will be good for 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator.  If you don’t plan to eat the leftovers right way, the best way to save these is in the freezer.  By storing them in the freezer, they are able to be used for up to a year!

  • To thaw: The best method of thawing is in the refrigerator overnight.  However, if you are in a rush you can thaw them in cold water or in the microwave.  If you thaw in the refrigerator you have 3 to 4 days to use them.  When doing a quick thaw use immediately and to not re-freeze.
