I adjusted the recipe by using goat cheese instead of blue cheese. It was outstanding! I also baked the mushrooms upside down for about 4-5 minutes before turning over and adding the olive oil garlic and tomatoes. I would definitely make this again! Read More

Not a huge fan the flavors were all off. I made this to go with a blue cheese sauce for steaks. I would not make this again. Read More

I fixed this for a roomie dinner and it turned out really well. I added balsamic vinegar to the oil/garlic mixture and used mozzarella cheese instead of blue. Read More

Fantastic appetizer, huge crowd pleaser, not time consuming at all. To save time, I used Trader Joe's bruschetta in a jar--LOVE that stuff--in place of the diced tomatoes--awesome flavor as it includes tomatoes, onion and some garlic. I also used goat cheese instead of blue, as another reviewer mentioned. The next day, as I had bought more mushroom caps than I needed for my dinner party, I baked using the same format and did the following: sauteed spinach on the botton, Costco veggie burger on top of that, then the mushroom cap as prepared above on top of the burger--perfection!! Trader Joe's also has a veggie burger (their Masala burger) that would work really well w/ the mushroom incorporated w/ it. Read More

This recipe is always a crowd pleaser. I change it up and sometimes use goat cheese since not everyone likes blue cheese. Either way is heavenly! Read More

Took the advice of another reviewer and baked gills down for 5 minutes. Spooned garlic and oil mixture over bottoms then flipped gills up and basted inside and edges. I also added a teaspoon of pesto on top of the diced tomato and used herbed goat cheese instead of blue cheese. Wonderful flavor and texture by itself or sliced over a salad. Read More

Was looking for a recipe to try as I got a portabello mushroom for the 1st time. Followed other reviews and after brushing the bottom side with oil and garlic baked it for 5 mins. Flipped it over brushed gill side with garlic oil and topped with chopped grape tomatoes. Baked for 8 mins then added blue cheese and Italian panko bread crumbs. Put back in until cheese melted and panko crispy. Wonderful will buy more and serve to guests! Thank you! Read More
