Portobello Mushroom Sandwich

Here is a quick and easy delicious supper. Portobello Mushrooms are the gigantic gray ones with dark brown underneath. They are juicy and meaty when cooked — all you need to make then taste good is olive oil, salt and pepper. Try them!


  • 4 medium-sized portobello mushrooms recipedetail_generic-200x140
  • 8 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chopped fresh herbs such as thyme, parsley or chives
  • 4 large good quality hamburger buns or one loaf soft white bread


With a brush or damp cloth remove any dirt from the mushrooms. Remove the stem and save for another use. Place the mushrooms in a wide bowl and coat on all sides with the olive oil. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper and the chopped fresh herbs, if available.

Preheat a broiler, or start a charcoal fire. When hot, place the mushrooms on the grill over the fire. Grill for about one minute on each side. The mushrooms should be juicy but not shrunken.

Cut the buns in half lengthwise or cut the bread to look like hamburger buns. Place the grilled mushrooms on the buns and serve warm.

Serves 4.
