Recipe

Whenever possible I always add the grilled mushroom option to my burgers. I just love how the earthy mushrooms pair with the beef - it's delicious. So on my recent foray into burger making at home, instead of grilling some mushrooms on the side to top my burger, I decided to add some right into the burger mix. That way I was ensured mushroomy goodness in every bite and didn't have to worry about the mushrooms sliding off like they inevitably do and covering my shirt. Seriously, it almost always happens. 

Any mushrooms will work for the recipe but the earthier the better. Portabellas or porcinis are a great choice. This recipe also works with ground chicken, turkey, or pork and is really delicious with lean ground sausage.
