Ehhh. It was nothing special, but it was okay. Would need a lot of changes to be good. Will not make again, but only because there is another similar, but way better that we like. Mushrooms needed cooked a lot more, cheese was to much, and needed more flavor.

This was so good! So easy, inexpensive and delicious. I've already made it twice in the same week. The mushrooms are juicy and the gorgonzola is what makes this, oh and the roasted red peppers, which are so easy to do yourself. Awesome!

This is a wonderful combo, with the gorgonzola cheese. The flavors mix wonderfully.

Delicious and so easy to make!! Will definitely make again soon :)

I might be dense, but I wasn't sure where the garlic went after cooking it in the pan. I thought it was a waste not to further use the sauteed garlic, so I added it to the cheese mixture. Though I do keep an eye on sodium levels, I added a little soy sauce to the pan instead of the salt on the mushrooms. Delightful!! I also did away with the rolls, stacked all the condiments on the mushroom, and flipped it onto a piece of toasted double fiber bread (for more fiber and better protein). I'll definitely be adding this to my regular rotation!

This was a really good recipe. It's very hard to a simple, easy recipe that is truly exceptional so I think you have to keep your expectations in line with that. If you like portobello mushrooms & cheese, you should like this. How can you go wrong with gorgonzola? This is a keeper for weeknights, for sure. The recipe does fail to say what to do with the sauteed garlic, so we mixed our in with the mayo sauce.

Recipe was good but not super exciting. My dinner buddy and I both agreed that it was good; the Gorgonzola and portobello are complementary; but when we questioned if it was a keeper our response was "it has potential." It felt lacking of something but I'm not sure what...

Delicious way to get your veggies in. My mushrooms were on the bigger side, so I had to cook them two at a time. I read in some of the other reviews that people didn't know what to do with the garlic. I watched the video on this recipe, and the cook just left the garlic in with the mushroom caps and scooped it up when putting the burgers together. That's what I did, but I think next time, I'll just sautee the garlic after the mushrooms and mix it in with the cheese dressing like a lot of other people did - seems easier. Altogether, very simple, fast recipe. The flavors mixed together very well.

I'm not sure it's worthy of a special occasion, but it's definitely a good, solid, and easy recipe. The flavors go well together and it's simple enough to make for one or two.

Good recipe, and very easy. It had a good amount of flavor, and definitely easy enough to keep in a regular weeknight rotation. I sauteed the portabellas with the garlic. Served on a whole wheat bun, and roasted my own peppers since I had some in the fridge. Served with baked sweet potato fries - my husband really liked it, and didn't even seem to miss the fact that there was no meat in the meal. If you like portabellas, roasted peppers and blue cheese, I recommend making this!

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)

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.

An easy, basic portobello burger recipe! This is one I've made more than once and you don't miss the meat...much. :)

Good recipe and I exchanged greek Yogurt for the mayo for a lot of reasons and also sauteed the mushrooms with the garlic for added flavor

We absolutely ADORE Portobellas.. but this recipe kicked it up! I will definitely be making this again. We made homemade jo-joes, and even the kids attempted it!
