One of our very first recipes we posted on our blog was for portobello turkey burgers. The use of a big juicy portobello mushroom cap is a tasty replacement for the typical grain-filled bun. Serve this alongside sweet potato fries for a classic summertime meal.

  1. Preheat grill to high heat.
  2. Rinse and slice vegetables (slice tomato to 1/8 inch thick and onion to about ¼ inch).
  3. Place turkey in a medium-sized mixing bowl and combine with seasoning ingredients.
  4. Mix until the spices are evenly distributed.
  5. Form turkey into four equal-sized patties.
  6. Grill turkey burgers on high for approximately 5 minutes per side, flipping once.
  7. Grill the onion and portobello caps on high for 3–4 minutes.
  8. Serve the burger atop the portobello cap with lettuce, onion, and tomato.
  9. Serve withCajun sweet potato fries.


Portobello mushrooms release a lot of liquid when cooked, to avoid a soggy "bun", remove the gills underneath the cap prior to grilling.
