Grilled Mushroom Sandwich With Citrus Mayo

Recipe by  

"I created this recipe to taste like a mushroom sandwich we served at the Good Earth Restaurant in Santa Clara, California (which is no longer in business). It tastes great with marinated portobello mushrooms, roasted red bell peppers, smoked gouda cheese, and spring mix!"

  1. Whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and garlic until well blended. Pour over mushroom caps in a resealable bag to coat, then seal and allow to marinate for 30 minutes. Stir together mayonnaise and orange juice, and set aside.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.
  3. Remove mushroom caps from the marinade and shake off excess. Place each mushroom cap upside down on a square piece of foil. Place roasted peppers on top, and seal. Cook on preheated grill until tender, about 15 minutes, turning occasionally. When the mushrooms are nearly done, cut open the sourdough rolls and grill until golden brown on the cut sides.
  4. To assemble the sandwiches, spread the cut sides of the rolls with orange mayonnaise, and layer with mushroom, roasted pepper, Gouda cheese, and the mixed greens.

This was awesome. You can't go wrong with a portobella sandwich. I've made them before but not with the citris dressing or roasted peppers. If you like it try marinating the mushroom in a teriyaki sauce...yum!

There are some good ideas in this recipe, including the citrus mayo, however it didnt impress. Next time i wont use balsamic vinegar in the marinade, and i'll try goat cheese to give it more of a kick.

Yummy! I used a smoked gouda and seasoned rice vinegar in place of the balsamic vinegar. I also roasted the red peppers myself. So much better than the jarred. Besides, it makes the house smell so good!

This was yummy! The only changes I made were I used provolone cheese instead of Gouda, only because I had the provolone on hand, and I used an English muffin instead of the sourdough roll (again, its what I had). The citrus mayo really made the sandwich. Will definitely make again!

Very tastey! Oddly, the roasted red pepper, smoked gouda and citrus mayo also make a delicious sandwich with a fried egg.

Turned out great! First time I ever followed a recipe and they were very easy to make. Will make them again for myself.

We LOVED this! The combination of flavors was wonderful. I did grill a few onions and throw them on, but everything else was as written. Wonderful!!

This was my lunch today! I was really a happy camper! I don't care so much for smoked gouda, so I used a blend of Swiss and gruyere, and the mixed greens turned out to be just arugula. This made a wonderful sandwich for me on Chef John's Homemade Hamburger Buns. I will for sure make this again! Thanks, sierra!
