Good Friday Fasting

Traditionally, Good Friday is a day to eat less and avoid meat. This isn't difficult for me . . . how about a Portobello Mushroom burger?

Not one from Carl's Jr.,

but one from your own kitchen, made with Portobello Mushrooms from the 99 Cent Only Store.

Yesterday they had super big ones (1 to a pack), and smaller ones (2 and 3 to a pack).

I washed and de-stemmed the mushrooms, and stuffed the mushroom bowls with a cream cheese, cheddar cheese, salsa, onions, and bread crumb mixture. I topped them with more bread crumbs, a sprinkling of black pepper and paprika, cheddar cheese and tomato slices (for garnish) and popped them into a 350 degree oven.

About 15 minutes later, the finished result was excellent and didn't even need a bun.
