1. Marinate the BBQ mushrooms in your favourite marinade

Marinate the mushrooms in your favourite marinade, then drain and BBQ until tender over a medium-hot fire for about 4 to 5 minutes per side. This has got to be the fastest and most effortless dish on this list to serve your BBQ party guests!

2. BBQ eggs in portobello caps

Jazz your portobellos up by carefully breaking an egg into the bowl of the cap after it starts releasing some of its liquid while on the BBQ. Season with salt and pepper and cover the grill. Thereafter, continue to cook the mushroom until the egg is done to your liking and garnish with chopped fresh parsley or sliced scallions. This can then be served with some grilled bread and you’ll have yourself some cafe-styled BBQ dish!

3. Add chopped portobellos to juicy burgers

Chop your portobellos into fine pieces and add them to you ground chicken, turkey, or lean ground beef, then make sliders or burgers according to your favourite recipe. The mushrooms will keep the burgers moist and juicy as they BBQ.

4. Mix sliced grilled portobellos with salad greens

Toss with your favourite dressings. Simple!

5. Make pizzas for your mushroom-fans

Grill whole portobellos over a medium-hot fire until they release most of their liquid. Remove your BBQ portobellos from the grill and spread your desired pizza sauce on the underside of the mushroom cap. Then, top with your favourite pizza toppings and finish it with grated cheese of your choice. Finally, return the mushrooms to the grill and cook until the cheese is bubbling, about 5 minutes. There you have it, yum yum BBQ pizzas!
