    2 large portobello mushroom caps, stemmed
    3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 oz crumbled blue cheese or Gorgonzola cheese*
    2 tablespoons light mayonnaise*
    1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
    2 whole wheat light hamburger buns, split
    1 large Romaine lettuce leaf, cut in half
    2 tomato slices


Scrape gills from mushroom caps, if desired.

Combine 3 tablespoons vinegar, oil, and next 3 ingredients in a shallow dish or large zip-top plastic freezer bag; add mushrooms, turning to coat. Cover or seal, and chill 1 hour, turning occasionally. Remove mushrooms from marinade, discarding marinade.

Grill mushrooms, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350░ to 400░) 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until tender. Remove mushrooms from grill, and immediately sprinkle undersides evenly with blue cheese.

Stir together mayonnaise and 1 teaspoon vinegar. Spread mixture evenly on cut sides of buns; place lettuce, mushrooms, and tomato slices on bottom halves of buns, and cover with tops. Serve immediately.
