Grilled Portobello Mushroom Panini (August 24, 2006)

Panini night moved to Thursday for one week…

1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper (we used a whole pepper)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 portobello mushroom caps (we used sliced portobello)

1. Preheat grill for medium heat (we used a skillet)
2. In a large bowl mix the red bell pepper, garlic, oil, onion powder, salt, and ground black pepper.

We now deviate from the recipie a bit…we placed Kaiser rolls (wheat) on the panini maker and topped them with the portobello mixture. We also added some greens, a tomato slice, and mozzarella cheese. We sprayed balsamic vinegarette on the tops of the buns, as well. We grilled them for a while (5-7 minutes) and served them with a salad and broccoli.

David: It was very tasty. It could have used more cheese and fewer peppers. Maybe more spiced. The mushrooms should be more featured. B+
Carla: Tasty, but I think it needed a bit more sauce (we used balsamic vinegarette). I liked it. Different than chicken or some other thing on the panini. B
