Saw this on the cover of Chatelaine yesterday and had all the ingredients to make it at home. For made six nice sized burgers and once the grilled portobello mushroom was underneath it cut up and stayed together quite nicely. I made a few changes to keep it compliant. :) This looks like it could be a good one for the cooler on road trips. Next time I will change it up and use a few more spices.
