Recipe Notes: What to do with portobello mushrooms? My recommendation is to stuff and grill them. I personally like this tasty (and easy) recipe: Grilled Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms. Mozzarella cheese, rosemary, garlic, olive oil - can anything go wrong that?
If you're in the mood for something more labor- and time-intensive I suggest a phenomenal mushroom en croute recipe from The Cliff House at Pikes Peak. (The Cliff House is a beautiful hotel with an outstanding restaurant and is located in Colorado Springs. I've stayed there and everything about the visit was just wonderful!)
In this recipe, the portobello mushroom is first cooked in a balsamic vinegar/water/shallot mix in a low-temperature oven for an hour or so, then stuffed with feta cheese, spinach and a mushroom duxelle (a cooked paste made of mushrooms, onion, garlic and butter). After that you wrap the mushroom in puff pastry (cut into a beautiful pattern with a lattice wheel, if you have it) and bake it.
There are two parts to the recipe, first you make the duxelle and then you use that to make the mushroom en croute. I've made this recipe a few times and it knocked everyone's socks off every time!
