 Have you ever had marinated portobello mushrooms? I remember one evening, my daughter and I (she was then 16) and I were at a friend's lovely estate in Georgia. He prepared marinated portobello mushrooms as an appetizer before dinner. We sat out on a deck where candles lit the way and a babbling brook ran behind us. An amazing evening with a good friend.

Tell me what you think!

  1. I think the recipe for Portobello Mushrooms sounds delicious. I've only had the sauteed Portobello Mushrooms and they are good too. I'm always in the market to try a new recipe. Yum! Yum!


  2. Scrumptious. I've had them with goat cheese and pine nuts sprinkled in at the end and broiled for just a minute. Divine. And Eva, thank you again so much for the potluck cookbook. It was waiting for me when I arrived in the US and I really enjoyed perusing it - can't wait to try some of the recipes.

  3. I just love mushrooms! I just never take time to prepare them. With this recipe, I will have no trouble.
    Now if I just had the Southern estate, babbling brook and candle light!

  4. This sounds wonderful! Probably one of those things I wouldn't cook, especially since Roger doesn't like mushrooms, but would love for someone to fix me! :)

  5. Reading your mushroom recipe. Its only 8 am here in south Texas and my mouth is watering. Yes! Also Portobello mushrooms marinated and grilled make great sandwiches. You can eat them like a hamburger and put Swiss cheese on top or whatever you top your burger with.

  6. That sounds good. I love mushrooms. My hubby doesn't, but I could eat them any old way. :o)

  7. Ann, I LOVED grilled mushrooms prepared and eaten like hamburger!!!

  8. I've never had marinated portobellos, but it sounds delish! Especially while sipping sweet tea on the porch - in a rocking chair, of course.

    And BTW I absolutely loved Things Left Unspoken. You really have the Southern voice down pat.
