Grilled Portobellos Mushrooms

Don't bother marinating these overnight as you would meat, it won't do much good because the mushrooms won't soak up too much. That's why you add a little marinade to the finished product.

While I was outside cooking these for the first time, a neighbor came over 'cause it smelled so good. I was making the Chicken satays and these grilled portobellos. Mark took a taste of the chicken, and then I suddenly realized that I had cooked something vegetarian, and Abby got a chance to test one of my new recipes as well. that was when we decided that they needed to have a little extra marinade on them after they've been cooked.

Serve with Maple / Mustard Dipping Sauce, or, Pineapple Mustard.
