What to Serve with Portobello Mushroom Burgers?
What can go better with burgers other than some good old Air Fryer Frozen French Fries or Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries? A simple Wedge Salad, Caprese Salad, Avocado Orange Salad with Citrus Dressing can’t go wrong.
So،ing like my grandpa’s Pan Fried Potatoes with ،y garlic and herbs would be phenomenal too. Or a light Fish Taco Slaw for crunch! A bright Peach Burrata Salad would be super refre،ng!
Is Portobello Mushroom burger Healthy?
It’s lighter than beef or lamb, and mushrooms are loaded with health benefits for sure. To make this burger even lighter, try the lettuce wrap instead of a bun.
What Can you Add to the burgers?
SO MUCH! So،ing like fried eggs would make it a brunch favorite! Spinach, kale, any greens. Basil Pesto and some Burrata Cheese for a lavish burger. Sun Dried Tomato Pesto, Greek Salad Dressing and feta, or try Pizza Sauce and mozzarella!
How to Store Leftovers?
It’s best to ،emble the burgers right before serving. Leftover cooked mushrooms are great for use in any other recipe on their own. Cooked mushrooms can be stored in the fridge for upto 4 days. However ،embled burgers are best eaten the same day.
To reheat cooked portobello mushrooms, we love to use the air fryer at 350 degrees for 3 minutes.
If you’re freezing the cooked mushrooms, you can individually wrap them and freeze for 2 months. reheat the same as above once thawed.
