Recipe Review: BBQ Portobello Sliders

by snackface on August 17, 2011 · 28 comments

Weekends are the time to experiment in the kitchen. There simply isn’t time for a wasted, crapola recipe in the middle of the week— who has time for risks like that? Thanks to some recipe testing in the kitch this weekend, I’ve discovered that some recipes really can be perfect any time of the week.

I went to DM’s place knowing that I had to make Jessica’s BBQ Portobello Sliders. Teeny but hearty, I had a feeling both DM and I would love these. And we did.

The recipe was so swift that it came together in 20 minutes— a feat for me. I like to take my sweet ol’ time. It all went as smoothly as the pictures imply.

Old school. I prefer to write recipes down!

Dinner rolls for sliders, Bullseye because I'm a good Midwest gal, avocado slices, caramelized onions-- a first for me!

Cheese is all you need.

Wait for it.

Stacks on deck.

Patron on ice. Not really. My Patron days live happily in the latter half of 2009/beginning of 2010.

I don’t have any constructive criticism for the recipe. It’s killa. We didn’t even have the right spices, but I made a somewhat-similar mixture. They were still amazing!

What’s weird is that I have an unpredictable love-hate relationship with mushrooms, meaning that sometimes I love them and sometimes I hate them— and I never know what I’ll be feeling until I bite into the shrooms. When I ate these, I wanted everything but the mushroom. The first bites were magnificent, and then my gag reflex kicked in. HOWEVER, my mang assembled these sliders with egg in lieu of mushrooms in the a.m. and they were purefection. (Pure + perfection = purefection. I’m sorry. I can’t. Don’t hate me. *Name that show! AKA the only show I ever quote!*) I mean, really. BBQ layered with egg, cheese, onions and avocado. Ridiculous.

The ultimate test: Will I make these again? YES! But with eggs instead of mushrooms! Jessica, thanks for the tasty veg recipe! Now I just need to make her chocolate chip cookie dough stuffed cinnamon rolls

Ciao for now,


QUESTION: Which blogger recipe have you tried lately and LOVED? We’d all love to know! (Yes, I’ve started to speak for the majority. WTF, right?)
