My husband loves mushrooms, so I am always looking for recipes with mushrooms that I will enjoy, also. I'm not a huge fan of mushrooms, but I do love portabella mushrooms. I just wish they were a little bit cheaper at the grocery store. For two portabella mushroom caps, it is $3.99 at my local grocery stores. Occasionally, I can find them on sale for $1.50 each, but usually $2 a mushroom is standard. It is worth it every once in a while, though.
Although a fairly simple recipe, this one called out to me because it reminded me of the portabella mushroom sandwich I used to order at the Rainforest Cafe (they don't make it anymore, though) or the Cheesecake Factory when I was a vegetarian. Those I'm sure were WAY more calories than the HG version.
I made two sandwiches for dinner - one for my husband and one for me. To cook the mushrooms and onions, I used my George Foreman grill to save time. It cooks both sides at once, so dinner is done in half the time. I even toasted the sandwich thin on the George Foreman - I just left it open so it would toast the buttered side only.
|See all the mayo oozing out from the bun? Mmmm!|
