Portobello Burgers

Back before G started his trip to foodalicious extraordinaire, He was a very finicky eater. One day we stopped for lunch in beautiful downtown Freeland. I ordered a Portobello burger. G likes mushrooms, so he followed my lead.

Mine was delicious. G took one bite and leaned over to me and whispered they forgot the hamburger patty. What should I do.? You would have been proud. I didn’t laugh. I just explained what a Portobello burger is.

Since then G has turned into a major foodie. He loves trying new things and enjoying new tastes. They had beautiful Portobellos at our grocery the other day and I thought it was time to revisit our burgers.

one good sized mushroom per person

Baste with olive oil

broil or fry until soft

I like serving them with lettuce, tomato, and purple onion

*****from the Recipe Box:

These are soft and almost creamy.

Just don’t tell anyone there’s no meat.

There are 2 ways to cook them: like a patty or sliced with onions. G likes them as a patty, I like them sliced and easy to eat.

Peanut Butter Sandwich…..Really

A decade or so ago, we went to Las Vegas with our dear friends. I wasn’t a huge Elvis fan at the time, I was going to see Jimmy Buffet, but they wanted to go to the American CafĂ© first and try the peanut butter and banana sandwich. The only thing I liked less than Elvis was bananas. The waiter asked if I wanted bacon for my sandwich. I thought he was kidding, but no. At that point, I’m ready to hurle. I think I’m only one of 3 people in the U.S. who does not like bacon. So, it was time to make some choices. Be a good friend and enjoy the friend time or leave the table and find something better to do. Since I was the only bacon /banana snob, I bit the bullet and gave it a try.

Hmmm. How to describe it? It tasted like bananas and bacon. Everyone thought it was fun in a mildly kitschy way. Will I eat them again? Probably not, but I am glad we had the opportunity to bond over Elvis.

…..From the Recipe Box:

it has been said by many that I make the best toasted cheese sandwiches. I can’t disagree with them. The how-to is on the 08/10/2018 date. That is the way I made these. Give them a try especially if you are an Elvis fan.
