    This is an excellent and healthy meal. I served it with sweet potato fries. I stayed true to the recipe, only adding sliced red pepper and some red onion rings to the vegetable medley. For preparation,when the vegetables are close to being finished, it is easier to put the mushroom bottom side down on the bun, top with the veggies, and then top with the blue cheese. I then put the sandwiches under a high broiler until the cheese browned a bit. I then topped the sandwiches with the top of the bun. Delicious and healthy idea!  -  14 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These burgers came out really delicious. I marinated them in the dressing for about 3 hours and after grilling all the veggies were very juicy. The portabella was nice and tender while the rest of the veggies added a nice crunch. I put the mushroom cap face-up on the bottom, then added the blue cheese crumbles to that (they stay in the burger a little easier that way) and then piled the rest on top. I also used about 3/4 of a bottle of lite balsamic vinaigrette, which cuts down on the calories and you can't taste the difference. Delicious, healthy, and very easy!  -  24 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This one is a regular meal at our house now. I often make my own balsamic dressing, mix & match veggies including onion and bell pepper, and use different cheeses at times. Yummy!  -  29 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
