Grilled Caprese Portabella by Cheeky Kitchen

Stuffed mushrooms are a deliciously enjoyable food, but you have to cook those babies in the oven. In all honesty, who wants to do that in the middle of these hot summer months? Not I. So, I rejiggered the stuffed mushroom, and combined it with a classic summer flavor combo…Caprese Salad! These 3-ingredient Grilled Caprese Portabellas are fast, fresh, and fabulous to eat! This meal is easy. It’s simple. And, frankly…it’s splendid beyond all imagination. Any meal that is healthy and full of mushroom flavor is a total dream in my book.

Fire up the grill, or cook indoors. I’ve included instructions for both. This meal is rich and hearty, but kissed with that summer Caprese flavor we all love so much! Make it on mini portabellas for appetizers, and full-sized portabellas for an entrée.

Grab a fork and dig right in. Delicious!
