Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Posted on


We all love our Slimming World burgers but for an extra speed food alternative try replacing your bread rolls with Portobello mushrooms for a tasty, healthy and extra speedy filling meal.

Serves 4 (Syn Free)


  • 500g Lean Beef Mince (5% fat or less)
  • 1 Small Onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (crushed)
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Handful of fresh flat-leaf Parsley (finely chopped)
  • 8 Large Portobello Mushrooms (peeled and stalks removed)
  • 4 Bacon Medallions (visible fat removed)
  • 120g Cheddar Cheese (30g of Healthy extra A allowance per burger)
  • 1 Large Tomato (sliced)
  • Baby Spinach Leaves


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Place the mince, onions, garlic, parsley and a generous dash of Worcestershire sauce into a bowl and blend until just mixed.
  3. Divide the meat mixture into 4 equal portions and shape into burgers (use a burger press for best results)
  4. Spray the burgers with Fry Light and grill on high heat for 7-8 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking.
  5. Once the burgers are nearly cooked add the bacon medallions to the grill and cook for a few minutes on both sides.
  6. Meanwhile, spray both sides of the Portobello mushrooms and place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for around ten minutes until softened and cooked through.
  7. Once cooked, place a mushroom on the plate inside face up, add some spinach leaves and a 30g slice of cheese (you can melt this under the grill if required) then add a burger, a bacon rasher, a slice of tomato and top with another mushroom face down.
  8. Repeat for the other burgers and serve with a fresh salad and some SW chips of your choice.
