The Mushroom Monster

Yield: 4 blended burgers


2 cups ground beef
2 cups cooked mushroom gills about 12 large mushrooms scraped
8 slices of bacon baked till done 15 min 375′ flip at half
4 slices fontina cheese
4 large buns 1 toasted if preferred
4 slices of tomato
4 red onion slices
4 lettuce leaves
1 smear of mayo
1 dollop of ketchup to taste


1 1/2 tbs dried thyme
1 teaspoon Worcester powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
This will season 3 batches of burgers


Take the mushroom Gills only – save the bodies for another dish. Dice the gills and cook in a dry pan (non-stick skillet) at medium heat until all moisture is removed. The time depends on the freshness of the mushrooms. Should be 10- 15 minutes. They should be very dry.

Cool the mushrooms.

Combine with the meat.

Form 4 1/2 pound patties these will be large burgers. Match to your bun size – a bit bigger for shrinkage and about 1/2 inch thick. Season the patties generously with the spice blend.
Cook the burgers in a skillet at medium heat till they are done (170 degrees). Cook medium – add a bit of butter if needed.

Place the cheese on the burgers and give a minute to melt.

Arrange the burgers on the buns, add the back, lettuce tomato onion and ketchup and mayo if desired.

Top the bun and enjoy.
