With Jake's Portobello Mushroom Blue Cheese Hamburgers is not about hamburgers on the grill how long but the great results you will achieve with this absolutely fantastic recipe.

I made these hamburgers for some special friends on the Central Coast.  The process was involved combining all the ingredients and there was the added pressure of friends from out of town.  The end results were very good and I followed each and every step.  Be sure to keep a handle on the measuring instruments during the process.  I tended to eyeball some of the steps because the location in which I was making the burgers just didn't have all the measuring devices I would normally use as I forgot mine.  I think we got a little heavy on the Worcestershire sauce and the black pepper.  But they tended to enjoy a slightly tart and spicy hamburger, well at least that's what they told me.  As for me I think we needed to cut back a bit on those items so my recipe above reflects the adjustments.  

The other thing I would do is flatten the burgers more than I did for the friends.  The mushrooms can bulk up the burger especially if they are not finely chopped so keep this in consideration as you get your ingredients together.  

Last but not least there are some great buns out now especially the pretzel and brioche buns.  Each of these is specialized but has a particularly short life cycle.  Keep things like heat and sunlight in consideration when bringing out the buns.  If you can keep them in a cooler or covered container that's even better.  If you are toasting the buns with butter first then you'll be less concerned.
