Portobello Burgers with Red Pepper and Gorgonzola

YUM!  I made these before our invasion and they were so truly scrumptious I plan on making them again soon.  The kids liked them too...once they picked off the bell pepper.  

Fresh herbs a garden staple, we grow thyme, several types of basil, marjoram, oregano, sage, stevia, dill, fennel, rosemary, cilantro, chives, salad burnett, and more I can not think of right now.  I highly recommend growing herbs.  Although we grow our herbs outside, they are easily grown indoors.
