Recipe for Grilled Portabello Mushrooms:

  • 2 portabello mushrooms
  • 2 slices of a large tomato
  • 2 slices of swiss cheese
  • olive oil, salt, pepper

Prepare your grill, getting the heat to at least 400 degrees. While you’re waiting, brush your mushrooms with a little olive oil and salt and pepper. Once the heat is ready, place your mushrooms top side down, the stem pointing up. Let that grill for a bit, like 10 or so minutes. Mushrooms take some time to cook down.

Then flip the mushroom to stem side down and add a tomato slice to the top. Close the lid and let this grill for another 10 or so minutes. You can then form the mushroom and test it’s tenderness.

We eat these as is, but you could add them to a bun making it complete as a portabello burger. Portabellos have a very meaty flavor and are thick, so they can be used to replace a traditional meat ingredient. My kids love these, eating them up and wanting more. Have fun trying these on the grill!


  1. Hi Marie, the recipe Grilled Portabello Mushrooms is a nice recipe. Its very simple to do and you have done a great job in posting it. Nice way of explaining the steps to do it. Its a time consuming process too.

  2. What a simple recipe! I love how it uses ingredients that most of us have in our fridge. A nice sprinkle of Italian seasoning over the tomato would add a nice kick. Thanks for sharing!
