Portabella Burgers with goat cheese and basil

I have made a lot of portabella burgers in my life but this method works the best I think. There are millions of ways you can flavor them but this is what we did tonight and it was delicious so I will blog this one.

Portabella Burgers with goat cheese and basil

Makes 2


2 large portabella mushrooms, stems removed
2 large cloves garlic, minced
2 t. soy sauce (approx)
2 t. olive oil (approx)
black pepper
spicy sauce to taste (I used like 3 splashes of habanero sauce)

4 Tablespoons goat cheese
2 large hamburger buns
1 tomato, sliced
salt and pepper
some lettuce or spring mix
sliced onion
6 large basil leaves, minced (maybe 2 teaspoons minced)
1 tablespoon minced parsley


1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Lay portabellas gill side up in oven-safe baking pan.
3. Mix together the garlic, soy sauce, olive oil, black pepper, and spicy sauce in a small bowl. Pour over the gills of the mushrooms evenly.
4. Bake portabellas in the oven for 30 minutes
5. When portabellas are done, turn off oven, break goat cheese into chunks and spread evenly over portabellas, and put back in warm oven to melt while you prepare the buns.
6. Toast the buns, prepare one half with: mayo, tomato slices, salt and pepper, lettuce, and onion.
7. Take the portabella mushrooms (with softened cheese) out of the oven and put on the topped bun. Sprinkle basil and parsley over the cheese. Top with other bun.
8. Enjoy!
