2 Tbs. Classic BBQ Rub
(click rub for recipe)
2 medium yellow or white onions, thinly sliced
1 tsp. herbes de Provence
1/2 cup prepared barbecue sauce
8 mini challah rolls or dinner rolls

Toss mushrooms in bowl with 1 Tbs. olive oil and Classic BBQ Rub. Set aside.

Heat remaining 2 Tbs. oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and herbes de Provence, and cook 30 minutes, or until golden, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Brush mushroom tops with barbecue sauce, and grill 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft and charred around the edges. Flip, and grill 3 minutes more. Divide cheese among mushrooms, placing in center of each stem side. Grill 1 minute more, or until cheese is melted.

Meanwhile, warm buns on grill. Spread barbecue sauce on bottom buns, then top each with 1 mushroom, sautéed onions, and top bun.
