Sunday BBQ: Portabella Mushroom Burgers


Although I love a wonderfully delicious hamburger, I'll happily admit that I also have a place in my heart for its vegetarian cousin, the portabella mushroom burger. Portabellas are nice and meaty and really hold up against a soft bun, they also soak up a sauce like nobody's business. Don't tell ground beef, but sometimes I actually like grilled portabellas better! This particular recipe uses my favorite summer staples (basil and garlic) and is a snap to make.
