portabella cheeseburger

We set out to make a meatless "cheeseburger" that even a meat lover would love. Packed with creamy Heinz Real Mayonnaise, robust Gorgonzola cheese, sweet roasted bell peppers and savory portabella mushrooms, this delicious and affordable meatless cheeseburger is perfect for any night of the week. Feel free to make it a double cheeseburger by using two grilled portabella caps. 

Portabella Cheeseburgers


  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 4 (4-inch) portabella caps
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup (1 oz.) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. Heinz Real Mayonnaise
  • 4 whole-grain hamburger buns (or gluten free hamburger buns for gluten free)
  • 2 cups trimmed spinach or arugula
  • ½ cup sliced bottled roasted red bell peppers  



  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high.  
  2. Clean portabella caps. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
  3. Brush the grill grate with oil. Place mushrooms on the grill. Grill for 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until tender. 
  4. In a small mixing bowl, combine Gorgonzola and mayonnaise. Stir well. Spread about ¼ the mixture onto each hamburger bun. Top each hamburger bun with 1 mushroom, ½ cup spinach and 2 Tbsp. red peppers.
