The Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burger with Cheese is a tasty beef alternative everyone will love, even the meat lovers. The mushrooms are marinated, grilled and then topped with melted Swiss cheese, banana peppers, grilled red onion and arugula. Balsamic vinegar and soy sauce give the mushroom its meaty flavor. Even without meat, this “burger” is savory and satisfying.

Step 1 Of 8
Lay mushroom caps and banana peppers in an even layer across the bottom of a <a href="">deep dish pan</a> .
In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, oregano and pepper. Then pour marinade over the mushroom caps and banana peppers. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Preheat your grill to 400°F.
Place banana peppers on the grill first, followed by the mushroom caps. Grill the peppers for 10 minutes per side and the mushrooms for 6 to 8 minutes per side. Top the mushrooms with a slice of Swiss cheese for the last 30 seconds.
Grill the burger buns for 15 seconds.
Cut off the heads of the grilled banana peppers. Then slice them lengthwise to open like a book. Remove the seeds and set aside.
Assemble your burgers on grilled brioche buns with mayonnaise, arugula, a mushroom cap, a grilled banana pepper, onions and tomatoes.
