What is the difference between Portobello and regular mushrooms?
They are literally the same type of mushroom! They are all Agaricus bisporus, in fact, just different ages: button mushrooms, which are white, are the toddlers; cremini mushrooms, which are brown, are the teenagers; and portobellos, which are brown and much larger versions of their younger selves, are the adults. Who knew!

What to do with them? Portobello Mushrooms are great for grilling. Their flavor is rich, earthy, and meaty. Portobello mushrooms are even the perfect burger shape and fit perfectly with our Brioche Buns included in our Classic or Vegetarian Meal Deals.
