Classic Cheeseburger

Recipe Courtesy of Mushrooms Canada

 

Blending finely chopped mushrooms and lean ground beef give burgers an incredible texture and flavour. Even the biggest meat lover will be asking for seconds.

Serves 6
Prep Time: 10 mins.
Cook Time: 20 mins.

Ingredients

8 oz fresh button Mushrooms
1/4 cup oats
1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves
1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/4 tsp dried minced garlic
1/4 tsp dried minced onion
1 tsp salt
6 slices Cheddar cheese
6 hamburger buns
Traditional toppings such as lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, ketchup and mustard

Directions

Place the mushrooms and oats in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped. Add the beef, seasoning blend and salt. Pulse until well combined. Form the mixture into six 4-inch patties.

Set a greased grill pan over medium-high heat. Place the burgers on the pan, and cook, without turning, for 5 to 7 minutes. Flip burgers and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add cheese and cook for 1 minute more. Serve on hamburger buns with traditional toppings.

Variation: For a gourmet cheeseburger replace the Cheddar with crumbled blue cheese and garnish with caramelized onions.

Tip: Chill the patties for 30 minutes before cooking on an outdoor grill to ensure they hold together well and flip easily.
