Instructions Checklist

  • Grill patties on the preheated grill until browned and desired doneness is reached, 5 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

  • Grill portobello mushrooms, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and yellow bell pepper on the grill until tender, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Use 2 mushrooms and as the 'bun' for the burgers.

Cook's Note:

For the buns, you an also use bell peppers or wrap the meat in lettuce.

If you are going to use mushrooms as buns then the bell peppers are not needed and vice versa. I actually did it both ways and preferred the bell pepper buns. There is quite a bit of mushroom going on in the inside of the burger and so the shroom buns seems overkill. My mushroom caps were huge too so that might have played a part. Regardless this was a great recipe and I enjoyed it. I didn't end up using the egg and I used green onions for the onions. Great recipe and one I would make again! Read More
