Portobella Mushroom Burgers

I like try to eat healthy on occasion.  So I came across a recipe for Portobella Mushroom Burgers and decided to give it a try.  Bought 3 of them - thankfully I only spent wasted about $3.50 on these.

Looks like a great idea!
Marinade:
Soy Sauce (I used lower sodium)
Balsamic Vinegar (love that stuff)
Montreal Steak Seasoning (to trick the mushroom into thinking it's steak)

Mix the above ingredients and soak the mushrooms in that for about 1 hour.

Then, fire up the grill.  The mushrooms take about 15 minutes to cook on direct medium heat.  If you've cooked mushrooms before, or sauteed them in a pan, you know they release water after cooking for a few minutes.

this looks like a good thing.  don't be deceived!
And that's one of my complaints about this 'burger'.  They seemed watery and made the hamburger bun mushy.

My husband said, "Um, you're a good cook, but let's not make these again, ok?" Grin.

Next time I try and make a healthy burger, I'll just make a black bean burger.  LOVE THOSE!  I've linked to the Morningstar Spicy Black Bean Burger.  I don't really like spicy foods, and these have just a little kick (more like a nudge) to them.  They are easy to store in the freezer and pull out for a quick meal.  And I feel like I'm being good to the environment and myself.  The downside (big downside) is they have artificial ingredients.  Not cool!  So I'll have to try making them myself.  In my next life.

Somehow I missed this post. Not sure I would try this burger, however I love to add sauted mushrooms on top of my burger. I think I could be totally happy to serve it without the burger.
