A couple of weeks ago Mrs. Chicken found this recipe on the Vegetarian Times website so I used it as a rough guideline to come up with my own sliders.

I started by finding some smaller portobellos in the store and tossing them with a little olive oil and basic rub.

I also grated some smoked Gruyere cheese.

The caps were grilled gills-down to start and after a few minutes I flipped them over, spooned in some of Steven's Chipotle Molasses barbecue sauce, and topped them with the shredded cheese.

I put them on toasted slider buns and didn't bother to add any toppings.

The sliders were really good and everyone liked them, and the best part is that the recipe's really versatile and can be made with almost an infinite combination of ingredients. Oil, rub, sauce, and cheese...can it get much easier?

Those look great! Like you said the possibilities are endless. Definitely going to have to try them soon - maybe this Sunday for our family Sunday dinner. I'm doing a ham and grill roasted potatoes and either fresh green beans or asparagus - maybe both. If I do them Sunday, I won't serve as an slider- no bun - just grilled and filled.

Very nice! I do something similar with EVOO, S+P, and chopped fresh oregano and thyme. Mushrooms are always great grilled.

+1 - they sure are. I like Brad's particular mix of seasonings, though I prefer a slightly less sweet sauce.

Steven's Chipotle Molasses sauce is also fabulous on any kind of pork but my absolute favorite for this sauce is on pork shoulder steaks.
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Mushrooms and the grill ... endless possibilities!
Have never tried the Chipotle Molasses but going to have to pick some up soon. I'm good on sauce right now ... just counted 4 open bottles in the fridge that I'm working thru and another 10, unopened, in the pantry. All different. + I'll be visiting Uncle Bub's, in Westmont, IL, in the near future and will leave with a couple of bottles of their sauce. Uncle Bub's won Best Sauce at the Best of The West, in Reno, in 2011 + will do well at the Naperville (IL) RibFest from July 3 - 7. I might even have the opportunity to give them a hand at RibFest.
++ Know I'm doing a ham on the grill for our family Sunday dinner this week. If I'm not working at RibFest, I'll do whole pork loins with a couple different home made sauces over the weekend of the 4th. One of them will be Steve's Redeye Sauce from BBQ USA. I've been having a real taste for it lately.

Not exact recipe but here's how I did mine ...
Diced mushroom stems and mixed with a little panko, cheddar cheese, and Billy Bones Wall's XXX Cherry Rub. Stuffed mushroom caps and added a dollop of Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce. Grilled until the mushrooms had cooked, cheese melted, and sauce carmelized over a medium fire for about 8 or 10 minutes.
Did not serve on a bun for a slider but used as an appetizer for Sunday Family Dinner.
Used the leftover stuffing on a nice butter hard roll and grilled on an old CharBroil grill that I cleaned up and had to re-season that I'm giving to one of my nieces for my lunch today. "Killed two birds with one stone!"
