1 cup balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper

2 garlic cloves, minced

6 portobello mushroom caps (about 1 1/2 pounds)

Cooking spray

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 1/2 cups sliced onion

1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise

1 teaspoon bottled minced roasted garlic

6 (2-ounce) whole-wheat Kaiser rolls or hamburger buns

PREPARATION:

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add mushroom caps; seal and marinate in refrigerator 24 hours.
Prepare grill or broiler.

Remove mushroom caps from bag, discarding marinade. Place mushroom caps on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 5 minutes or until tender.
Heat the oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cover and cook 10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently.
