Summer is the best time for grilling! Whether your family enjoys burgers or picnics, summer time allows for creative family meals. Let’s take our culinary game up a notch and add Portabella mushrooms to the menu.
Portabella mushrooms are known for their wide, tan caps. With their deep, meat-like texture and flavor, these mushrooms are perfect for the grill. Not familiar with grilling portabella mushrooms? We have you covered – check out this video for step-by-step instructions.
Ask your kids to help you with the preparation of portabella mushrooms, because they are great sous chefs! Kids can help you clean the mushrooms prior to seasoning, because this is the first step to a tasty meal. By including children in meal preparation, they will more likely try what they made. For a fan-favorite burger recipe, try our Easy Portabella Burger.
Because portabella mushrooms are available year round, this variety of mushroom is great for roasting when the days get colder. To learn how to roast mushrooms, check out this video. Below are some delectable portabella mushroom recipes:
