Lobster Stuffed, Portabella Burger

I choose to make a different kind of burger, because by the end of June I am sick of hamburgers and hotdogs already! This burger is different and exciting! I would enjoy eating and serving this burger to any of my guests, making the meal special even if it is a burger. The lobster Stuffed, portabella burger is casual yet special. Although it is not as easy as a regular burger, it is not a hard recipe and definitely worth the little time this recipe takes.

Ingredients 

6 large portabella mushrooms
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
¼ cup Pinot noir wine
Lobster stuffing
1lb. cooked lobster chopped
¼ cup pimento diced
2 shallots diced
3 cloves garlic minced
1/3 cup copped Italian parsley
1/4 cup sherry wine
1/4 cup melted butter
11/2 cups of butter crackers crushed
1/2 tsp. Salt
3 Tlb. oil to grease grill
6 slices Gouda cheese
6 Kaiser rolls
½ cup Mayonnaise
1 head Butter head lettuce

Clean mushrooms with paper towel or mushroom brush until all sign of dirt is gone. Clean inside of mushroom, removing inside rib; using a spoon to scoop out. Mix together ¼ cup of vinegar and wine. Place mixture in large plastic bag, place mushrooms in bag of vinegar and wine mixture, shake to coat mushrooms and set aside. To make lobster stuffing, boil 1 lb. lobster in large pot of boiling water for about ten minutes or until lobster has turned bright red.

Place mushrooms on heated grill face down (cap up) with grill top on for 5 to 7 min, or until mushrooms are browned and starting to tender, remove from grill. Take divide mixture and top each mushroom with mixture, pressing into underside of mushroom to insure equal coverage. Return mushrooms to grill (cap side down) and grill for another 5 minutes, or again until brown and tender. Add sliced Gouda cheese. Close grill top until cheese has melted. Remove from grill and set aside. Toast Kaiser roll on grill until lightly browned (careful this happens fast). Spread a layer of mayonnaise on top and bottom of roll.
