The perfect alternative to a hamburger and french fries! 

The portobella mushroom is tasty, hearty, and full of the flavor of your choice.  Mushrooms are said to be a good source of potassium and are much lower in calories than any burger.  One of everyone’s favorite sides to a burger is french fries, so, simple as that, serve it with baked sweet potato fries.

2 portobella mushrooms, washed and stems removed

1/4 c. balsamic vinegarette salad dressing

1 T. worstershire sauce

1 T. olive oil

100% whole wheat hamburger buns

Place washed portobella mushrooms in a shallow container.  Drizzle each mushrooms with balsamic vinegarette, and worstershire.  Flip to be sure both sids are covered.  Let sit with stem side up so that marinade can soak in.  Cover container and let marinate for at least 1 hour.  Heat olive oil over medium high heat.  Add mushrooms and cook about 7-10 minutes per side.  Remove from skillet and serve just like you would your favorite burger!
