Easy Portobello Tailgate Burger

With the NFL playoffs beginning this weekend, burgers are on many people’s menus, including mine.  While at the grocery last week, the portobello mushroom caps caught my attention, so I decided to give portobello burgers a try.  It was easy, quick, good and light!  (They’re so good that I’ve made them three times in the last week.)

Simply pre-heat your oven to 410 °F.  Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly cover with non-stick spray.  Wipe the mushroom cap with a damp paper towel (or rinse and allow to completely air dry).  Trim the stem so that the cap lays flat on the baking sheet.  I basted mine with Soyaki from Trader Joe’s (1 TBS for 1P+) to add some flavor, but you could also use olive oil (1 TSP for 1P+), salt and pepper.


Bake for approximately 12 minutes.  Dress like a hamburger.  I chose a sandwich thin instead of a bun (3P+), then added Dijon mustard, lettuce, tomatoes and green onions (all 0P+).


Add a side of fruit, and that’s a complete meal for only 4 Weight Watchers PointsPlus!


With such a light meal, that should leave a little room for other tailgate snacks, including my favorite: popcorn.

Go Team!
