Primal Portabella Burger

Whenever there are Portabella’s that are in the Costco, I always pick up a pack. They are usually super cheap and you can use them as a meat all in itself or fill them with tasty foods. I did a double whammy and made a Primal Portabella Burger! Whhhaaaaattttt??? I know right!  This is a super filling and healthy burger option than your trusty buns and not as messy as having a lettuce wrap. Sure maybe you can’t pick it up like a regular burger, but I guarantee that it is much more delicious!

I am going to give a recipe for just 4 burgers as usually there are 2 Portabella’s in a pack.

  1. 1/2 pound grass fed burger
  2. 1/2 pound ground pork
  3. 4 each Portabellas
  4. 1/2 cup diced white button mushrooms
  5. 1/2 cup diced red peppers
  6. 1/2 cup diced red onions
  7. 1/2 tablespoon oregano
  8. 1/2 tablespoon garlic salt
  9. 1/2 tablespoon Kosher salt
  10. 1/2 tablespoon paprika
  11. 1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  12. 1/2 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  13. cheese
  14. tomatoes
  15. lettuce or spinach
  16. avocado

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Clean out the scales (I think they are called gills actually) from the Portabella’s and remove the stems. If you wash the mushrooms and they are wet you are going to want to place the empty Portabella’s in the oven for about 10 minutes so t remove some of the excess water. Last thing you want is a soggy ‘shroom!

Next, chop up your ingredients, i.e. onions, mushrooms, red peppers. Blend together the grass fed burger and sausage. Add in the seasonings and chopped veggies. Mix well. If you do not want the burgers to have a spicy kick then you can lesson or remove the red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper. I just like things SPICY!

Portion out the burger/sausage mixture into 4 good size patties. Side tip: You can always make these healthy sliders if you have smaller Portabella’s. Place the patties inside of the Portabella’s. Place in a baking dish for about 20-30 minutes, depending on how well you would like the burgers. If you would like to top with cheese, top it a few minutes before so that the cheese will melt.

Let sit for about 5 minutes. Top with your favorite garnishes. Lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, avocado….whatever is your pleasure.

Don’t these look so fantastic! OMG they are delicious. If they are super large burgers then they would be about 2 portions per Primal Portabella Burger.
