Blue Cheese Burger with Portobello Mushroom

HT wife had a craving...she needed it ASAP.  HT hubbie was in a panic...he's thinking where to get HT wife's request...he can get it from a fast-food-chain-which-must-not-be-named in HT couple's dictionary but nah...until "ting...!"

What beats a good burger that is made with love? :D Cheezy...

He got a quarter pounder in the grocery, melted gorgonzola pieces on top...

Just the way i like it.

The yummy portobello mushroom shouldn't be left out.  This can serve as the burger patty if you're the vegetarian...but HT couple take their being carnivores seriously. 

soaked in a mixture of garlic, balsamic vinegar, basil, oregano, soy sauce and olive oil..

leave it for an hour or so to let the mushy's absorb the marinade and sear it in a pan.

sautee'd veggies on the side (zucchini and bell peppers).  HT hubbie melted gran padano when the veggies were almost soft.

Voila!  Tasteful burger, nicely glazed mushrooms with healthy veggies...

and a satisfied HT wife.  Lucky her...isn't she? :D

  3. Loraine u're so loved by your HT hubby! Lucky lucky! :D :D :D Awwwwww!

  4. @Charlene and Memey -> indeed! :) He brought SG here so I don't get too lonely.

    @Amasou Umasou -> I was also overwhelmed with the size :D

    @Daniel -> hahaha...yeah, if there's a will, there's a way...we made sure that we can do anything at home as what restaurants do (except that gunpowder steak :D)
