Portobello Appetizer

This recipe is simple, delicious, and easy to make. This is the (very short) list of ingredients:

  • Portobello mushrooms
  • Olive Oil
  • Red Pepper flakes
  • Gorgonzola cheese, preferably crumbly (but blue cheese works too)

The ingredients.

First, clean the portobello caps, and cut down any stem that might make them difficult to fry on both sides. Then make sure they’re dry.

Next, coat the bottom of your pan (preferably cast iron) with olive oil.

Fry the caps – gill sides down – on low heat for a while. You want to cook them thoroughly, but without burning or searing them.


Gill sides down.

When you’re ready, flip the caps. Now they can cook gill side up for a while. And the gill side is now hot enough to help melt the cheese you’re going to crumble over them. Add as much cheese as you care to. Then add some red pepper flakes too – again, to taste.


Crumble the cheese

Cook for a while, until you think they’re ready, or the cheese is melted. Cut into quadrants and enjoy!
