Last Saturday I had lunch in Burlington (WI) with some friends and took advantage of the opportunity to visit River Valley Ranch and do a little shopping.

Portobello-Swiss brats were on the lunch menu so I gave one a try.

Sold! I bought a package to take home.

They grilled up really nice (good mushroom flavor) and while I'd prefer that they be made with unprocessed Swiss cheese, the processed version melts better within the sausage. Unfortunately Burlington's almost an hour away so it might be awhile before I buy any more!

YES! 8) I've never even heard of those, but you just made a sale if I ever see them in my neighborhood. :D

Interesting. I've never heard of those before either. I'd love to try and make a batch myself, but my next two weekends are booked solid. Could you tell if the mushrooms were just chopped up and tossed in raw or do you think they were cooked prior?

My guess is that the shrooms were cooked first, if only just to cut down on the risk of contamination.

I'd try these at least once too. :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Like CG said, they were probably cooked. Otherwise they probably would give off a lot of water.

Go for it! If anybody here could make a homemade version it's you.
