Today's Special: Open-Faced Portobello Sandwiches

Today's Special: Open-Faced Portobello Sandwiches

Hefty portobello mushrooms are an excellent substitute for meat. The earthy, hearty mushroom adds protein and flavor to any meal, and is great for grilling, sauteing, or roasting. In tonight's case, the mushrooms act as the base of an open faced sandwich topped with a delicious vegetarian friendly mixture of cheese and herbs. The feta and fresh oregano give the mushrooms a Greek twist, and the grape tomato bites, added after baking, give it a salad like quality that is light and tasty. The creamy ricotta and tangy feta pair nicely with a bottle of Pinot Noir so why not invite your boy over for an impromptu dinner date? These sandwiches would make an intimate informal meal when concluded with fresh oranges and vanilla cookies. Happy Friday! Check out the recipe and

OMG, that sounds so good! I LOVE portobello mushrooms. I think I'll try adding a little balsamic vinegar in the mix since it goes so well with mushrooms!"Party like a rock star, pound like a porn star, play like an all star!"
