Dinner: Turkey Burger with Provolone Cheese, Onions, Lettuce and Tomato on Portobello Mushroom Buns

I think I had my proudest food moment when I cooked this burger. It all started with an idea....I wanted a burger but didn't want the carby buns! a friend suggested I try Portobello Mushrooms, and ding! I was like yessss!!! I'm a mushroom fanatic anyway, I just really love mushrooms. I went to the market and purchased about 6 Portobello Mushrooms. I was so excited to go home and make this burger. I went to the grocery store and bought some ground turkey meat and provolone cheese. I had already bought fresh tomatoes and lettuce from the market. First I washed the mushrooms and placed them in a small frying pan (you're supposed to grill them, but I don't have a grill) and I just seared them on both sides for a few minutes with balsamic vinaigrette. For the ground turkey, I basically seasoned the meat like I would a normal burger, and then fried the burger with red onions. Once done, I placed it on one Portobello Bun and placed a slice of provolone cheese on top with a few slices of tomatoes and lettuce and then covered with the other Portobello bun. All I have to say is AMAZING!! WOW!! UNBELIEVABLY DELICIOUS! I must pat myself on the back, this burger was so tasty and out of this world!
