“Portabella mushrooms are the largest of the edible mushrooms and are ideal for vegetarian burgers that are meaty without having any meat involved. to clean mushrooms - in general - don't wash them, because they will soak up the water. Instead, get some paper towels and pat them down as well as you can to get as much dirt off. also make sure there no stems on these portabellas, so they can fit evenly into the burgers.”
