Fungus Burgers?

It's time to make chicken burgers with portobello mushroom buns, or as I like to call them, FUNgus Burgers. So much fun.

Don't prejudge the mushroom buns. Fungus burgers are the epitome of awesome. So let's get mushroomed up. And be sure to check out version 2 at the bottom of this post!

Chicken Management:

Preheat your non-stick skillet (medium heat). Coat with Pam non-stick cooking spray.

  • Grill the skinless chicken breast (flip to ensure both sides are cooked).  Cut the center to ensure it is fully cooked. Sprinkle the chicken with seasons. My favourite seasons are salt-free Mrs. Dash and black pepper. Measure 4 ounces.

Mushroom Management:

Portobello mushrooms have a tiny shaft with a very large head. That's what she said. Snap the stems off 4 medium sized portobello mushroom caps. Using a spoon, scrape the gills off the underside of each mushroom. Slap 'em on a skillet coated with non-stick cooking spray (PAM). Flip to ensure both sides are cooked. Sprinkle the mushrooms with seasons.

  1. Hey! This looks promising, I’ll give it a try. I would go grill on the portobello mushrooms and the chicken for more taste.

    I do a recipe with portobello mushrooms for breakfast… grilled portobello mushrooms with grilled canadian bacon on top and scrambled eggs (50%whites), and I add diced tomato with cilantro on top… ummm ummm ummmm!

    BTW I just liked your FB page, you are hilarious on your WO videos.
