When life gives you the perfect edible dish, you fill it with blistered cherry tomatoes, melting buffalo mozzarella and a crunchy parmesan crumb. The only thing left for you to decide is whether you barbecue it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

 1 punnet cherry tomatoes
 Olive oil
 Sea salt
 Freshly ground black pepper
 2 slices white bread, roughly chopped
 2 garlic cloves
  cup cup grated Parmesan cheese
 10 fresh basil leaves, plus extra to garnish
 4 portabella mushrooms, stems removed
 200 g grams buffalo mozzarella cheese
 1 tbsp tablespoon balsamic glaze
1

Prepare the barbecue for direct and indirect cooking over medium heat (180° to 230°C). If using a Weber Q barbecue, set up your barbecue with a convection tray and a trivet.

2

Lightly coat the cherry tomatoes with oil, then season with salt and pepper. In a food processor blitz together the bread, garlic, Parmesan, and 10 basil leaves until the mixture has turned into fine crumbs. Using a basting brush, brush the mushrooms all over with oil. Season with salt and pepper.

3

Grill the cherry tomatoes over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until they just start to blister, about 4 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking time. Remove from the barbecue.

4

Assemble the mushrooms by placing the cherry tomatoes into the mushroom cavities. Tear the cheese into small chunks and add to the mushrooms. Top with the blitzed bread crumb mixture.

5

Roast the portabella mushrooms over indirect medium heat, with the lid closed, for 15 to 20 minutes. If you are using a Weber Q, place the mushrooms on the trivet. Roast the mushrooms until the crumbs are golden and the mushrooms are cooked to your liking.

6

Finish the mushrooms with a drizzle of balsamic glaze and garnish with fresh basil leaves.
