Just Another Meatless Monday, whhhooooaaaaa I wish it were Sunday, cause that's my fun day, my I don't have to run day
We had a fantastic weekend, we just about worked and played ourselves to death. We had a small Maypole on May Day and a Beltane fire for fun. It was our first time this year cooking out over a wood fire in the fire pit. I love to cook over wood but the smell of smoke usually gives me a migraine the next day. We spent a lot of the weekend simply cleaning up and getting ready for summer, we really need to get organized and stay that way. Someday.
My recipe for today is something I haven't done before mostly because I always think portabellos are too expensive. Now that we are eating much less meat I see them as more reasonably priced than before and a good 'meaty' alternative to burgers. Don't get me wrong I love a good burger but I just don't trust ground beef from stores any more. And damn good stuff is expensive!
Portabello Melts--oven 400˚
*can be easily be made vegan*
1 TBSP of olive oil
dash of salt
4 slices of good cheddar or vegan cheese
4 English Muffins
pretty basic assembly here, wash and pat dry the poratbellos reserve the stems for another use
place the caps on a baking sheet, toss with oil, top with a dash of salt
roast for 10 minutes
flip and roast another 5
meanwhile assemble the rest of your ingredients
split and toast the English muffins right in the oven with the mushrooms, set out on 4 plates or a platter
when the mushrooms are done turn oven to broil
place the cheddar on the tops of the mushroom caps
broil until melted
slice the avocado divide between the four bottom halves of the English muffins
top the avocado with mushroom caps and then the other half of the English muffins
serve with mustard
I tried these new English Muffins, they were really good! I haven't made English muffins before, anybody have a good recipe? I'd love to try them.
These were a great lunch sandwich today except our middle boy the new toothless wonder could not actually get a bite because the remaining front tooth is barely holding on. We just cut them up in bites sized pieces for him. We were joking about them being the 'new' nuggets and then got off on a recipe tangent wondering if you could make a crispy mushroom nugget, can you? Interesting thought right there though.
So who remembered we were going to try and post summery recipes, uh yeah not me. So much for themes. If you bring a summery recipe today kudos for having a good memory, if you didn't well then join the club!
