#burgermonth: Mushroom Cheddar Burger

When friends had to cancel our beach cookout this weekend, I had extra meat for burgers this week. My boys never complain about grilled burgers. Instead of making more Bulgogi-Spiced Burgers with Mango Mustard Kimchi, which was my post for #burgermonth, I went for a plainer - but still delicious - burger. Think of it as a #burgermonth bonus!


Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef (we choose organic + grassfed)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C shredded cheddar cheese
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 T minced garlic
  • 2 C sliced crimini mushrooms
  • pat of butter
  • buns
  • sliced cheese (I had some provolone)
  • lettuce
  • tomatoes, sliced


Procedure
About an hour before you plan on grilling, mix the first six ingredients together in a mixing bowl until well combined. Divide into 4 pieces and press into patties. Season with more salt and pepper. Let stand for at least 30 minutes, or an hour if you can.

Prepare grill. While the burgers are grilling, saute the mushrooms in a pat of butter until they are nicely browned and softened but still holding their shape. Serve the burgers with buns, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and other condiments, if desired. Our were delicious with just the mushrooms for added flavor! Enjoy.
