Portabello Burger with Basil Mayo

It's been pretty gross out recently. Monday was a particularly gross cloudy, drizzly, cold day. And just in case it's been gross where you are, too, here's a warm weather sandwich to cheer you up.

Weight Watcher's Grilled Portobello Sandwich with Basil Mayo is a great vegetarian subsitute to grilling burgers. True, there's nothing quite like a big, juicy burger straight off the grill, but if you are looking for something leaner or meatless a portobello is delicious.

Most packaged vegetarian burgers scare me, especially the ones trying to taste like a hamburger (they don't!). Portobellos are my favorite vegetarian option. And this recipe has a nice basil mayo that really kicks up the flavor and adds a wow factor.

This time, I paired it with steamed corn on the cob. I can't wait for summer to officially get here.

Hey Jen! This was perfect timing for this recipe...we're thinking about grilling out tonight with friends, and I was looking for something my vegetarian friend would eat. I think I'll want one myself too! :)
