Portabello Mushroom Caprese Burger Recipe

This Portabello Mushroom Caprese Burger is a great burger option for meat eaters if you are doing a vegetarian cookout and an all-time favorite vegetarian option.

Marinating the portabello with balsamic vinegar before grilling adds lots of flavor.  The of Caprese toppings of fresh mozzarella, tomato, and basil make this a satisfying vegetarian burger option.

One of my all-time favorites.

This is by far my favorite vegetarian burger option.  For the nonvegetarians in the crowd try adding a couple of slices of crispy bacon to add amazing flavor.
Use your favorite pesto or make this easy homemade pesto.
