Everything tastes better over a campfire, right? So far, I have not been proven wrong! On our last camping trip, I decided to see how one of my favorite recipes would taste using our beloved pie irons (see Camp Cooking Equipment You’ll Love ). We usually make hamburgers at least one night on our camping trips. For this time, I decided to make portobello mushroom burgers instead of our normal beef burgers. It was actually easier to make and cook than our normal burgers and cleanup was a snap!
|Prep Time||35 minutes|
|Cook Time||10 minutes|
- 4 portobello mushroom caps
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 c balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried basil
- salt & pepper to taste
- 4 wheat buns
- 4 slices provolone cheese
- 4 tbsp butter
- 1/2 bag charcoal briquettes
- Start charcoal and let burn until the coals are white.
- Mix together olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Add garlic, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper.
- Put mushroom caps in a large ziplock bag and pour vinegar mixture over the caps. Let set at room temperature for 15-30 minutes, turning halfway. The longer the mushroom marinates, the stronger the mushroom will taste.
- Place one mushroom cap into a pie iron. (Caps can also be grilled) Cook on each side for 3 minutes each. Put iron directly on coals. Adjust time if pies irons are already hot from previous use.
- Butter both sides of wheat bun slices.
- Add mushroom cap and a slice of cheese to the buns and put back in the pie iron.
- Heat the pie iron an additional 2 minutes on each side until lightly toasted and the cheese is melted. Remove from pie iron and enjoy!
