Portobello Heaven - TNT

I prepared these on my indoor grille (with glass tempered lid - to melt the cheese). It's easy to put together for a cocktail party bite or appetizer.

Portobello mushrooms
Sliced fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese (or shredded mozzarella)
*Sliced beefsteak tomato (sun-dried tomatoes or roasted sweet red peppers is another way to go)
Fresh basil
Extra virgin olive oil
Bruschetta (toasted baguette, rubbed w garlic & drizzled w evoo) Alternately, you could use mini rolls & make mini sandwich cocktail bites.)

Remove stems & clean mushrooms. Brush olive oil on both sides. Grill mushrooms cap side down, turn over and grill till a bit soft. Flip the mushrooms over cap side down, place a *tomato slice on, then the mozzarella. When cheese is melted, remove shrooms from grille & sprinkle with basil.

Cut the mushrooms into smaller pieces & place on bruschetta, Cut the brushetta into slices - or place the shrooms on mini rolls/buns.

Charlie, good to "see" you. They are yummy. Reminded me of a Caprese salad. Hope you give it a try.

Thanks guys. I luv mushrooms. Here's a little visual of mini mushroom burgers - just to whet your appetite Like the idea of adding some red onion slices & balsamic vinaigrette.

Ooh I love portabellos. I happen to have some in the fridge and was going to grill them with chicken breasts for a sandwich. I think I'm going to add these ingredients and make a "really" good sandwich. Thank you for this!
