Mushroom burgers

And here a new recipe. An american one for burgers. Although it might be less beefy than the typical american burger. See I like to add vegetables in my burgers. I find vegetables help with keeping the meat moist and soft. And they add flavor and make the burger healthier. So I almost always add some sauteed vegetables and a bit of cheese to the burger.

Some of my favorite additions are eggplants, zucchini, onions, sun dried tomatoes, capers and on the cheese I like feta and melty stuff like muenster and mozarella. What do you like to add to your burger?

Mushroom burgers

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 2 Servings


  • 1/3 lb ground meat
  • 1/2 lb mushrooms
  • 2 oz melting cheese (I used muenster)
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • black pepper
  • salt


  1. Slice the mushrooms and saute them until soft. Let cool.
  2. In a bowl, mix the ground meat with the diced cheese, the mustard, the chopped mushrooms and salt and pepper.
  3. Form into 2 rather large patties and cook in a searing hot pan without added fat.
  4. Serve with mustard, ketchup and all your favorite fixings.

    Adoro accompagnare gli hamburger con verdure, senape, cipolle e salse, non conosco l’inglese ma questi burger e il loro accompagnamento mi sembra perfetto! Un bacione e grazie della tua visita!

  4. Nice idea! I’m not that fond of burgers generally, mostly because it’s just meat. But this takes it to whole ‘nother level.

    I think I can get my son and hubby to eat these. Mixing the meat with the mushroom is a good idea. They would never just eat a straight mushroom burger. 🙂

  6. I have never added anything into my burgers besides chopped onions, and that is even rare… but the thought of a mushroomy, cheesy melty burger is brilliant! Love it
