Portobello mushroom burger with stilton, caramelised onions and wild rocket
Serves: 2
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 red onions, finely sliced
  • pinch of Maldon salt
  • 2 large portobello mushrooms
  • 100g stilton cheese
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 2 brioche buns, toasted
  • Dijon mustard, for spreading (optional)
  • 25g wild rocket
  1. Preheat the grill to high.
  2. For the caramelised red onions: In a pan heat up 2 tbsp olive oil and add the sliced red onions along with a good pinch of Maldon salt. Turn the heat down low and allow the onions to slowly cook down for 10 mins until soft.
  3. While the onions are cooking, place the two portobello mushrooms onto a foil lined baking tray. Remove the stem and then stuff the mushroom with the crumbled stilton cheese. Season with some cracked black pepper and then place them under the grill for 5 mins - until the mushroom is tender and the cheese is melted and bubbling.
  4. Going back to the onions, after they have softened for 10 mins add the balsamic vinegar and caster sugar and cook gently for another 5 mins until sticky and caramelised. Remove from the heat.
  5. Now you can assemble your burgers. Start with the toasted brioche bun base, spread a thin layer of Dijon mustard on, if desired. Next top with the stilton filled portobello mushroom, season with some Maldon salt and then pile on some of the caramelized onions. Finally top with the wild rocket and the brioche bun top.
