  1. For the past couple of weeks I have been busy with three large catering projects.  For all three projects, I smoked a ton of ribs, beef, pulled pork, salmon and chicken.  You know I had to taste everything to make sure it was worthy for others to eat lol.  This week I had some down time and lots of Portobello mushrooms leftover from my last job.  So today, I decided to make myself a MEATLESS Mushroom Cheeseburger and it was off the chain good!  Here's my recipe and "meatless mushroom cheeseburger Q-view"

    I started with 1 red onion and 1 package of medium size Portobello mushrooms.


    I wiped my mushrooms off with a damp kitchen towel.  Cut onion and mushrooms into big chunks


    I pulsed chopped veggies until they looked like this


    added 1/2 stick butter, chopped veggies, 1 teaspoon granulated garlic, 4 cloves smashed fresh garlic, pinch of kosher salt, ground black pepper, pinch red pepper flakes (optional)


    I'm cooking outside so I'm cooking over medium high heat


    I added a big splash (about 1/4 cup) of Sweet Marsala wine.  I have made this recipe using red wine also. Either one taste really good.


    Cook until all the moisture is gone and the veggie mixture looks like a paste.


    I melted cheddar cheese of both sides of the buns, smeared with spicy brown mustard, topped one bun with green leaf lettuce, the mushroom mixture,and tomato slices.  Had a kosher dill pickle, pepperoncini and extra tomato slices on the side!



    Finished "Meatless Mushroom Cheeseburger"  off the chain good!
