Classic Cheeseburger

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.
