Grilled Portobello Mushroom Sandwich

Want a substitute for a burger? Try a Grilled Portobello Mushroom Sandwich! Our oldest daughter was a vegetarian for awhile and she introduced us to this delicious sandwich. This is a recipe we found in a cookbook called Snack Attack! by Ruth Glick.

Here's the recipe:

    Preparation Time: 2 minutes
    Serves: 1
    Serving Size: 1 muffin half

    1 portobello mushroom
    Desired vegetables (optional)
    1/2 toasted English muffin or other bread, roll, or bun
    Pinch salt
    Pinch black pepper

    1. Preheat the broiler. Place the mushroom and any vegetables you wish to grill on a small baking sheet. Broil 2 inches from the heat for about 3 minutes on each side or until the mushroom has shrunk slightly, exuded its juice, and begun to brown.

    2. Serve on a toasted English muffin half, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and garnish as desired.
