I love burgers but I’ve heard that eating red meat and fried foods 3x per day is not good for you. Have you heard about this? Where do these so called “experts” get their information from anyway? :)

But seriously, burgers are probably the only red meat that I actually enjoy eating. Growing up, I hated even the sight of red meat. One time I even went so far as to hide a well chewed piece of steak in a house plant. Although I’ve grown to enjoy burgers and an occasional cheesesteak, veggie burgers and meat alternatives are usually what I go for. Portabellas are a nice substitute for meat because they have a nice “meaty” texture. Give it a whirl.

Great condiments: mustard, ketchup, mayo, relish, red onion, pickles, caramelized onions, or any other condiments that you desire.

Portabella Mushroom Burger


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Rinse the mushroom caps and pat dry with a paper towel.
  3. Place the mushroom caps on a cookie sheet that has been lined with foil.
  4. Sprinkle the tops of the mushrooms with sea salt, pepper, garlic powder.
  5. Place the pan into the oven and cook the mushroom caps for 10-15 minutes or until mushrooms have a “rubbery” texture.
  6. On a separate cookie sheet lined with foil, place each hamburger bun. On the bottom half of the hamburger bun, place the slice of cheese and put into the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese has melted.
  7. Remove mushroom caps from oven and pat dry with a clean paper towel.
  8. Place mushroom caps on hamburger buns and top with condiments. Serve with baked fries, veggies, fruit salad, or another side. Enjoy!

  1. Portabella burgers are super tasty for sure. We have local places in our town that sell and make grass-fed beef burgers. Turkey burgers too!
