on the table | Grilled Portabella Sandwich

For the last…well, a long time, I’ve wanted to create some way of organizing the random meals that I make, love, and then can’t seem to remember when I need them. And several of you have inquired about the meals I make here at the Douglass house. So, I thought by posting these “recipes,” I can organize myself and share them with you. And I’ll only post the ones that we like.

I had a delicious grilled portabella sandwich  in a restaraunt last month. It inspired me. I’m not sure it tasted the same, but I still enjoyed these. They are very substantive; serve half for the kids.


Serves 4 adults    Prep time: 10 min.   Cook Time: 15 min

grilled portabella

  • 4 Portabella Mushrooms, wash & remove stems
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 4 whole grain buns
  • 4 slices of Swiss cheese
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, chopped, use to taste
  • butter
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper


Salt and pepper both sides of the mushroom and place on the grill. Grill both sides. Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until they’re soft. Open the buns and lay them out on a baking tray. (I used the Ezekiel bread buns which are pretty grainy tasting, so I buttered them before putting them in the oven.) Broil the buns until they’re toasted. Put a slice of cheese on the buns long enough to melt it. Add whatever condiments you like (Bethany: mayo, Mark: A1 sauce).
