Meat eaters love the steaklike texture of these mushrooms. If smoked mozzarella tastes too strong, feel free to substitute a milder cheese in its place.

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Drizzle a roasting pan with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and add tomatoes, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and thyme. Toss to mix. Roast for 15–20 minutes, or until tomatoes start to burst. Keep oven hot.
  2. Preheat grill or broiler to medium heat. Place mushrooms gill-side up on a work surface and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons olive oil, balsamic vinegar, a little kosher salt (optional), and remaining 1 teaspoon pepper. With remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil, lightly coat the rounded side of the mushroom caps.
  3. Place mushrooms, gill-side down, on grill or broiler pan. Grill or broil for 6–8 minutes on each side, until soft and slightly charred.
  4. Transfer mushrooms to a roasting pan and fill with 10–15 tomatoes each. Top with cheese. Place in hot oven until cheese bubbles. Set each mushroom on a mound of steamed spinach and serve immediately.
