Portobello Mushroom Burger with Spicy Wedges

Ok, so, technically this isn't a burger, but it feels like a burger and is a great alternative to a veggie burger which I often find can be a bit dry. It oozes all the lovely juices of the mushroom and also the melted cheese, just delicious. The spicy wedges were also a lovely compliment to the burger.

Portobello Mushroom Burger with Spicy Wedges
(Serves 1)

150g potatoes, cut in half and then into three
cooking spray
1 tsp Old Bay or cajun seasoning
1 large portbello mushroom, stalk removed
1 heaped tsp pesto
1/2 small ball mozzarella cheese, sliced
1 bread roll, sliced in half
1/2 roasted red pepper

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and put the potatoes on the tray. Spray again with cooking spray and mix the potatoes around so they are covered in the spray, sprinkle over salt, pepper and the seasoning and bake in the oven for 30-40 mins until golden and crispy.

Meanwhile heat a little oil in a frying pan and cook the mushrooms for 3-4 mins each side until golden.

Place the mushroom, gills side up on a baking tray. Spread the pesto over the mushroom and then place the cheese on top. Bake in the oven for 10 mins until the cheese is melted.

Place the mushroom on the bottom half of the bread roll, top with the pepper, lettuce and the top half of the roll. Serve with the wedges and your favourite condiment.
