Portobello Mushrooms with Blue Cheese and Ham

I went to Lake Tahoe last weekend with a couple of friends for my 33rd Birthday. Fresh mountain air and the beach are just about the most relaxing things I can think of. Often with a large group of people there are different ideas of what activities we should do, especially with all the choices given at Tahoe, but after a fun day outdoors, everyone is united in the same feeling- hunger. Renting a house rather than staying at a hotel makes this an extra fun activity as well. BBQ party on the patio and sitting around a fire pit are just a perfect ending to a great day.

We didn’t have a large group this time, so our BBQ was not as elaborate as it can get. Still, I wanted to share one recipe with you that we made there and was really good.

  • Ingredients:
  • Portobello mushrooms
  • Crumbled blue cheese
  • Ham, chopped
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil

Preheat the oven to 350F. Wash the mushrooms, set them upside down on aluminum foil and salt them. Fill the caps with cheese and cover with ham. Sprinkle olive oil on top. Bake for about 15 minutes. Then sprinkle parmesan before serving.


  1. Looks really nice. Sitting here at almost 2am and wishing I could have one of those :(

  2. I made this dish with mozzarella instead of blue cheese and diced cherry tomatoes and basil instead of ham and grilled them. Very delicious
