These Hot Portabella Rolls were inspired by this and the idea of creating a vegan healthier version of the humble hot dog roll.


Portabella Mushrooms are large and meaty, making them a great vegan substitute for dishes featuring meat (like burgers). Sliced up into large strips, grilled and stuffed into a hot dog roll they mimic a hot dog. Add a corn and pepper filling drizzle some mustard and you have a messy and delicious veggie roll.
