Serves 2

Ingredients:

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic, pressed
salt and pepper to taste
2 portabella caps, cleaned and trimmed
1/2 pound ground beef
Favorite seasoning salt
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 small red onion, sliced into rings
2 slices cheddar cheese
Sliced tomato, lettuce leaves, other condiments

Directions:

1. In a one quart Ziploc bag, combine the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add the mushrooms and marinate for 15 to 30 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, divide the beef into two portions and form each into a patty. Season to taste with seasoning salt. Set aside and preheat the grill.
3. In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil until simmering. Add the onion and cook, stirring for 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
4. Grill the burger patties and mushrooms over hot grill until the meat is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 160º and mushrooms are tender, about 10 minutes. During the last minute or two of cooking, lay the cheese slices atop the burgers to allow them time to melt. If you’re going meatless, you can melt the cheese over the mushrooms.
5. On each plate, layer one mushroom, burger, cheese, and sautéed onions. Serve with tomato, lettuce, and other condiments.
