  • Substitute ground pork or chicken for ground turkey if desired.
  • The dark brown gills of portobello mushrooms are edible but they leach a brown liquid that is visually unappealing when they are cooked. To remove, scrape out gills with a spoon and discard.
  • Substitute cremini or shiitake mushrooms for portobello mushrooms.
