These were soooooooooo goooooooood. Loved them  :)>>> and even my omni-friends loved the veganaise topping. Wonderful recipe for our Labor Day bbq.


I love these. Portobello burgers are nothing new, but that doesn't make them any less tasty! This recipe brings out the best in the mushroom, so it's not bland and the basil mustard sauce is super good. We make these for ourselves on the grill, and at cookouts and people love them. Also easy to make inside with the broiler if you're missing the grill and cookout food during the winter. <3
