Grilled Portabella Sandwich

If I had more thumbs, I would say this was a "three thumbs up" sandwich.  And as I plated mine, hubby was already engrossed in his mushroom sandwich.  I heard alot of yums and wows coming from his direction.  I quickly snapped a picture and hurried to take that first bite.  You know it's good when EACH bite is followed by a "yum"!

For a nice change from a burger, try this.  It takes less time on the grill and is quite simple to prepare.

Grilled Portabella Mushroom Sandwich

2 servings

For the marinade:

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 garlic clove, minced

pinch of salt and pepper


2 large Portabella mushrooms

additional 1 Tbsp oil for brushing


Clean and cut off the tough stem part of the mushrooms.  Place them in a shallow dish, gill side up.  Brush the marinade onto the mushroom, and refrigerate for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.  Heat up the (oiled) grill and place the mushrooms on,  gill side down.  Cook for 4-5 minutes, brush the cap side with olive oil, turn and cook for about 4 more minutes.  Place a slice of provolone cheese on top, let it melt and assemble your sandwich.  I used a simple avocado and a vine ripened tomato.  Next time I'll switch up the bread and try a French or Dutch crunch roll.

This recipe could easily be doubled or tripled.
