March 04, 2021

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 Portobello mushrooms
  • ½ cup teriyaki marinade or sauce
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 4 slices smoked gouda cheese
  • 4 leaves butter or curly lettuce
  • Pickled red onions (optional)


  1. Cut or break the stems off the Portobello mushrooms and scrape out the gills.
  2. In a bowl or large re-sealable container, toss the mushrooms with 6 Tbsp of the teriyaki sauce until thoroughly coated.
  3. Cover and marinate in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  4. Oil and prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat.
  5. Grill the mushrooms for about 4 minutes each side, until tender. Make sure to keep the grill covered as much as possible to ensure even cooking.
  6. Place a slice of smoked gouda on each mushroom. Cover and cook until cheese is melted.
  7. Toast the buns on the grill until golden brown.
  8. Remove and spread the remaining teriyaki sauce on the bottom buns.
  9. Layer a mushroom cap on each bun and top with a piece of butter lettuce and picked red onion. Serve immediately.
