Grilled Portabella Mushroom Sandwiches

**Courtesy of Ms. Betty Crocker

Lemon-Herb Basting Sauce
~ 1/2 cup olive or vegetable oil
~ 1 tablespoon chopped fresh (or 1 teaspoon dried) thyme
~ 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
~ 2 tablespoons lemon juice
~ 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

~ 4 fresh large portabella mushroom caps
~ 1 medium red onion, cut into 1/4 inch slices
~ whole wheat hamburger buns
~ lettuce leaves
~ tomato slices

1.  Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat.  In a tightly covered container, shake all basting sauce ingredients.
2.  Brush mushrooms and onion slices with basting sauce.  Cover and grill mushrooms over medium heat 5 minutes.  Add onions.  Cover and grill about 5 minutes, turning and brushing mushrooms and onions with sauce occasionally, until vegetables are tender.
3.  Brush sides of buns with remaining sauce.  Fill each bun with lettuce, mushroom, tomato and onion.
*Personal touch -  We added a slice of pepperjack cheese to each mushroom while on the grill.
