Reviews for Portobello Burgers with Pear-Walnut Mayonnaise
"This were absolutely delicious! I'm a vegetarian and these were THE BEST vegetarian burgers I've ever made."
"We made these tonight and they were fantastic! We grilled them and lightly toasted the buns. We used blue cheese crumbles on the onion under a piece of provolone, the flavors melded together and we will for sure make this again!"
