From Bon Apetit: Why stick with chicken or eggplant? Portobello Parmesan is just as tasty - and it doesn't need any breading. Choose mushrooms that are fresh (you'll know because they'll still be curled up around the edges). Older ones are flat and won't hold the filling as well.

Recipe Ingredients for Grilled Portobello Parmesan

6 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, pressed (1 lg. clove)
6 mushrooms, portobello, stemmed, gills scraped out (lg. portobellos)
1 cup ricotta cheese, whole-milk
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
6 tbsp parmesan cheese, finely grated
3 tbsp fresh basil, chopped, divided
2 tomatoes, heirloom (cut into 1/3"-thick slices)
8 ounces Fontina cheese, thinly sliced

Recipe Directions for Grilled Portobello Parmesan

  1. Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Whisk extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and pressed garlic clove in small bowl.

  2. Season dressing to taste with salt and pepper.

  3. Arrange portobello mushrooms on rimmed baking sheet, gill side up.

  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  5. Spoon generous tablespoon dressing into each mushroom; swirl to coat.

  6. Stir ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil in small bowl to blend.

  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  8. Arrange tomato slices on plate; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  9. Place mushrooms on grill, gill side down. Grill until edges begin to soften, 3-5 minutes, depending on thickness of mushrooms.

  10. Transfer mushrooms to same baking sheet, gill side up.

  11. Nestle 1 tomato slice into each mushroom.

  12. Divide ricotta cheese mixture atop sliced tomatoes, spreading to cover, about 3 Tbsp per mushroom.

  13. Top with Fontina cheese slices, dividing equally.

  14. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp Parmesan cheese over each.

  15. Carefully return mushrooms to grill. Cover BBQ and cook until mushrooms are soft and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

  16. Sprinkle remaining chopped fresh basil over.

  17. Place mushrooms on plates. Drizzle remaining dressing around mushrooms and serve.
