Fire Up Some Portobello Mushrooms This Labor Day

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

I never need an excuse to fire up the grill (we do it year round here!), but I'm already getting my Labor Day plans kicked into gear. Of course, burgers and hot dogs will be high on the list, but over the summer we gravitated to eating mushroom burgers quite often, so we are definitely putting them on our Labor Day menu this year. The first few times I made them, Jason thought they needed a little more oomph. More than just the olive oil and salt and pepper I was using. I decided to make these Portobello Mushrooms from Golden Blossom Honey earlier this week to see if the added sauce and spices would punch things up a bit, more to his liking.



Ingredients
1/4 cup olive oil
4 garlic cloves, chopped
4 large Portobello mushrooms, washed, stems removed
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon rosemary, crumbled

Sauce:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup scallions, chopped
1 Tablespoon ketchup
1 Tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 teaspoon soy sauce
salt and pepper, to taste

I love adding thyme to my steakhouse mushrooms, but I never even thought to add it to my mushroom burgers. Total duh moment there! It definitely gave it more flare! Jason loved it all, except the rosemary (he's never been a fan). Also, he thought the addition of a slice or two of Swiss cheese would have made these burgers killer. We will definitely put our own little spin on it next time, but overall, I think this is a great recipe to work with.



You can find this recipe, as well as many more delicious recipes right on the Golden Blossom Honey recipe page! Be sure to follow Golden Blossom Honey on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on new products and promotions.

  1. We do love them shrooms... we call them champignons here :)
    I'm with Jason, no to rosemary and other weed, yes to cheese :) I love to add cellery leaves in everything but I don't like them Mediterranean herbs such as rosemary, basil, thyme etc.

    1. I usually like all herbs, but cilantro is one that I detest. I do love the basil, thyme, parsley, and oregano, especially in my Italian dishes.

  9. I would be the only one in my house would want to eat the portobello mushroom I don't even think telling them there's something sweet like honey on it would get any of them to try it. Oh it looks great to me though.

  14. I can say in all of my 29 years, I have never tried a portobello mushroom. Okay I kind of exaggerated, I think I had it in soup once. Still not buying that? Okay maybe once in a sauce. Alright, maybe a few more years than 29 but who's counting. Cheers.
