Swiss Mushroom Burgers

Total Time:
25 min
17 min
8 min

4 servings

  • 1 1/4 pounds ground beef (preferably chuck)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 8 -ounce package sliced mixed mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 4 thin slices gruyere cheese
  • 4 sesame buns, split and toasted
  • Boston or Bibb lettuce, for topping
  • Potato chips and/or pickles, for serving (optional)
  • Preheat the broiler and line the bottom of a broiler pan with foil. Lightly mix the beef with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Gently form into 4 patties, about 3/4 inch thick. Arrange on the prepared pan and brush both sides with olive oil. Broil until browned, about 4 minutes per side for medium rare.

  • Meanwhile, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook 2 more minutes. Add the Worcestershire sauce and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 2 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat. Combine the ketchup and mustard in a small bowl and set aside.

  • Top each patty with one-quarter of the mushroom mixture and 1 slice cheese. Return to the broiler to melt the cheese, about 1 minute.

  • Spread the buns with the ketchup mixture; sandwich with the patties and some lettuce. Serve with chips and/or pickles.

We cooked the burgers on the grill and the onions/mushrooms on the stove. Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Son loved them. Really easy to make. Didn't have swiss cheese so used smoked gouda instead. Also added garlic powder and onion powder to the ground beef and broiled on low 5 min. each side. Will definately make the again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
