Portobello Pizza Burgers and our Menu Plan

By September 20, 2010Cooking, Main Dishes, Menu Planning

The Family Dish is a website that is full of great recipes and lots of ideas for bringing your family together at dinner time! I’m very honored to be an Ambassador for this Unilever program.

I’ve shared with you my Peach Cupcakes, Fried Potatoes, and Cheesy Bacon Crescents here on Hoosier Homemade. I also have several other recipes on The Family Dish website, including a video on how to make Peanut Butter Cups.

As part of the program, Unilever sent me to New York City for a very special, fun filled weekend! It was very exciting to cook in the Unilever Test Kitchens, and I will be sharing several recipes from the ones we prepared.

One of those, were these Portobello Pizza Burgers…

I love mushrooms, love them fried, sauteed, on pizza, pretty much any way to cook them. And these Burgers were no exception.

My group did not prepare these, but I did take the pictures, and of course, I did taste them, along with all the other great food we shared.
