Prepare the grill grates wit the Colavita Extra Virgin Olive oil and pre heat half to high and half to medium.
Using the Reynolds Parchment Paper and a plate to flatten gentle form 6 patties slightly larger than the Kingâ€™s Hawaiian rolls. Get the marinated mushrooms and drain on paper towels. Place the patties on high heat and the mushrooms (reserve the marinade) between the medium and high heat and grill for 5-7 minutes. Crush the Ramen noodles and add to an ovenproof skillet with the sesame seeds and sliced almonds and place on medium. Toast and flip and for 3-4 minutes until everything is toasted and remove. Set aside until needed. Pour 1/ 4 cup of the marinade in a medium bowl and add the vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil. Toasted noodles, sesame seeds, and almonds. Toss with the Bok Chow, NatureSweet diced tomatoes, onions, carrots, dice California Avocados. Turn the patties and mushrooms and grill another 3-5 minutes. Add a slice of California white Cheddar cheese to each patty, sesame seeds, and almonds. In a medium bowl blend together the 1/8 cup of the remaining marinade and the butter. And spread on the insides of the Kingâ€™s Hawaiian rolls and place on the grill to toast a light golden brown for 2-3 minutes. In another medium size bowl blend the mayo, and the orange juice. Blend the Teriyaki sauce, mustard, and blend into the orange mayo. Remove all from the grill and spread the Spicy Orange Teriyaki mayo on the toasted roll insides.
