Portobello Mushroom Buns are my favorite low carb/Whole30 option when it comes to sandwiches and burgers. Their meaty texture ensure they won't fall to pieces and since I find their mild, earthy flavors tastes good with almost anything.

These buns have been a life saver over the past month. Embarking on a Whole30 for the first time quickly left me craving my favorite burgers and sandwiches. Let's be real, I was craving bread, but I figured if I could at least have a sandwich then maybe I could quell the beast. Looking at Whole30 "bread" options, people go in a few directions. Sweet potato, collard greens, lettuce, and mushrooms seem to be the most popular. People also use cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, roasted red peppers, and zucchini. That's a lot of options but mushrooms immediately jumped out at me since I love them. The idea of a grilled or roasted mushroom cradling my sandwich filling sounded dreamy.

And it was! I have since used them for burgers, BLTS, egg sando's, and basically any kind of sandwich you can think of that is Whole30 approved. Yum.
