Satisfy your burger craving with a meatless mushroom stacker topped with Gorgonzola cheese.
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 (4-inch) portobello caps
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon bottled minced garlic
1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
3 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
4 (2-ounce) sandwich rolls
2 cups trimmed arugula
1/2 cup sliced bottled roasted red bell peppers
How to Make It
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle mushrooms with salt and pepper. Add mushrooms to pan; sauté 4 minutes or until tender, turning once. Add garlic to pan; sauté 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
Combine cheese and mayonnaise, stirring well. Spread about 2 tablespoons mayonnaise mixture over bottom half of each roll; top each serving with 1/2 cup arugula and 2 tablespoons peppers. Place 1 mushroom on each serving, and top with top halves of rolls.
Portobello mushrooms are well-paired with pungent Gorgonzola cheese. Use crumbled blue cheese to save even more time.
I mixed up some olive oil and balsamic vinegar and poured it over the gills of the mushrooms, and sprinkled some seasoned rub mix over them. Let them sit while I sauteed some onion rings, which I put on the roasted red peppers. Sauteed the chopped garlic a bit, mixed it into half light M/Whip-half FF Greek yogurt, along with about 2 T. crumbled Gorgonzola. Served on freshly baked ciabatta buns (they come partially baked in a package at my store). Used baby spinach instead of arrugula since I had some that needed to be used. So good.
Awesome recipe! would definitely make it again. Next time I would 1/2 the amount of cheese mixture. Too much of it mixed with the mayo can make you a little nauseous. I served mine with garlic roasted potatoes instead of French fries and it was AMAZING!
These were really good and I even forgot to add the garlic at the end. We had whole wheat buns and omitted the red pepper in favor of sliced roma tomato. Next time I'll grill the mushrooms and then dress them with some garlic-infused olive oil before putting the burgers together. Really interesting and satisfying meatless meal.
I was kind of skeptical, but I must say, not only is fast in preparation but absolutely worth making. My husband loves meat and I thought he might complain, but to my surprised he loved it too. We paired it with a beer (lagunitas)
