Let me introduce you to the dish I have been grilling up at least once a week for the entirety of the summer.

Actually, I started out grilling these stuffed mushrooms with sautéed spinach and bread crumb coated goat cheese on top.

Then I got lazy. Lazier and lazier I guess.

This dish is barely a recipe. That is probably why I make it so often.

Take your big old portobello mushroom and drizzle a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper on top. Grill that baby over a high heat for about 5 minutes, flip, and grill for 3 more minutes.

Bring your shrooms inside. Fill each portobello with a little of your favorite tomato sauce or marinara.

Top with little crumbles of goat cheese.

Put the mushrooms back on the grill, cover, and just wait for that cheese to get melty and creamy.

I like to ship off a few leaves of fresh basil to be fancy.

All you need is a little sprinkle of salt and red pepper flakes or regular old pepper to finish it off.

We have eaten these on their own, over some noodles, or on the side of a grilled burger or piece of chicken.

Grilled goat cheese stuffed mushrooms sound fancy but, you will see, they will be so easy, you’ll be making them once a week in no time!
