I concocted this recipe as a anniversary treat for my husband years ago. I've seen many recipes like this, but I really like the smoked cheese ,it just adds another layer of flavor. —Bee

What You'll Need

  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 4 medium to large portobella mushroom caps

  • 3-4 firm heirloom tomatoes seeded and chopped roughly
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped rosemaru or basil
  • 1/2 pound smoked mozzeralla thinly sliced

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a plastic bag. Coat mushroom caps evenly in marinade. Let rest for 1/2 hour.
  2. Place mushroom caps on the grill cap-side-up and season with salt and pepper. Cook mushrooms covered or under tin foil tent and turn occasionally. Mushrooms will cook 4 to 6 minutes on each side.
  3. Combine tomatoes, rosemary or basil and smoked mozzarella. Drizzle with oil and toss.
  4. Fill mushroom caps with tomato mixture and top with sliced mozzarella.
  5. Close grill lid or place tin foil tent over mushroom caps to melt cheese, it will take 1 to 3 minutes. Serve as-is or, place stuffed caps on sliced crusty bread to catch the juices.
