    Howdy all! I made a stuffed portabella with smoked homemade mozzeralla to go with the yummy beef tenderloin. I started by cleaning the gills from the shroom with a spoon, giving a good amount of EVOO and some finely chopped garlic. Then I put it on the grill "face down" and no the garlic didn't fall off! Took it off, topped with sliced tomatoes and some mozzarella I cold smoked recently. I put it back on the grill for about 15 minutes to cook the other side of the shroom. I then put it under the broiler for about 1 minute to brown up that cheese. Easy to do and soooo yummy!

    Thanks for the thumbs up super mod man!

    FFT - I love anything and everything about food, and I became creative with it at a very young age out of necessity (we were dirt poor). I'm not afraid to experiment with something, and it's fun as heck!

    Great idea. Do you have to clean the gills?

    TD - No you don't have to, but I don't like it. It's like getting hair in my mouth. Ewwwwww. But if I'm chopping it for a stirfry I don't remove them they cook down and I don't feel the need to cough up a hairball.

    Very nice there Cheryl I like your portabellas and the stuffing looks great. Now I guess your gonna tell me you grew the tomatoes too. I bet you did. Now I to like to stuff some portabellas with a whole range of stuff like Italian Sausage is a good one with some white cheddar cheese or maybe some chopped shrimp and mozzarella cheese. But I do like you tomatoes and mozza.

    Another thumbs up Cheryl. Might even taste good with some roasted red pepper on top.
