portobello mushroom-blue cheese burgers

i used religiously watch watch food tv almost every day when i lived in america for over 5 years. one of the first recipes that i was tempted to try after watching it being made on tv was emeril's potobello mushroom blue-cheese burgers with lemon aioli and bitter greens. i must have made this burger over fifteen times by now and i am amazed at just how much it gets appreciated by h and friends alike every time. if you're looking to impress, give these burgers a try. they are absolutely delicious. the tenderness and juiciness of the grilled portobello which has been marinated in balsamic vinegar, rosemary, garlic and olive oil is to die for. i would suggest a glass of chilled rose champagne as the ideal pairing for this burger.

here's the link to emeril's recipe for portobello mushroom-blue cheese burgers from food tv's website.

Hey Lulu,
This DOES look delish. I've been contemplating making these for over a year now but just never have. Now you've motivated me to try it out! Which greens did you happen to use? Are bitter greens the equivalent of arugula here in the States? Do you happen to put any other condiments on the grilled bun, or is the marinated portobello enough?

Sorry - I just clicked on the link and saw that the lemon aioli was the condiment used...:)

Lulu the pics looks delicious. I often try a derivative of this burger with grilled eggplant instead of the portobello.
