  • 8 Portobello Mushrooms⁠
  • 240ml Oil⁠ of choice
  • 8 Brioche Buns⁠
  • 2 Eggs⁠
  • 100g Panko Breadcrumbs⁠
  • 2 balls of Mozzarella⁠
  • A handful of fresh leaves⁠
  • 1 Beef Tomato⁠
  • Spoonful of our new Tomato and Chilli Jam…


  1. Using a spoon, scoop out black undersides (gills) of portobello mushrooms.
  2. Divide mozzarella in half. Using your hands, press half the mozzarella into a ball. ⁠
  3. Flatten each ball into a puck and place pucks on top of the gill side of 2 portobellos. ⁠
  4. ⁠Top with remaining portobellos (gill side down)
  5. Heat oil in a small pot over medium heat.
  6. Set up a breading station by placing beaten eggs and breadcrumbs into separate small bowls.
  7. Dip portobello burger into egg, then into breadcrumbs. ⁠
  8. Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of breadcrumbs to the pot. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat. ⁠
  9. Add one burger to oil and fry 4-5 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to absorb excessive oil.⁠
  10. Build your burgers using remaining ingredients, a dollop of our Tomato and Chilli Jam, serve, and enjoy!⁠
