Smoky, sweet, garlicky deliciousness. You have to use all the adjectives when describing my Balsamic Glazed Portobello Mushroom Burgers. So easy to make, guaranteed to never fall apart on the grill, and just in time for the 4th of July.

They are like little sponges taking on any flavor you give them which makes mushrooms perfect for marinating.

In fact, I’m positive that after I post this recipe I’ll get a couple of requests to make these for the upcoming holiday.
