Mushroom Burgers

These can be topped with whatever condiments that you usually put on a burger.   They are great on a bun, but since I am gluten free I usually eat them on their own.

Ingredients:

4 Portobello mushroom caps

1/4 C. balsamic vinegar

2 tbsps olive oil

1 tsp dried basil

1 tsp dried oregano

1 tbsp minced garlic

4 slices provolone cheese

 

Directions:

Add the vinegar, oil, basil, oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper to a bowl. Cover the mushrooms in and marinade for 20 minutes.  Cook the mushroom caps on the grill for 7 min on each side while basting them with the marinade every 2 min. Place the cheese slices on the mushroom while it is hot to melt.
