Portobello Burger with Muffuletta Topping Recipe

Portobello Burger with Muffuletta Topping Recipe

A tasty tomato-olive mixture, melty cheese and smoky grilled mushroom add so much flavor to this recipe one taster called it “one of the best grilled mushroom burgers I’ve had.” For a change, switch another cheese or spinach for the provolone and lettuce. —Tamra Duncan, Lincoln, Arkansas
