“I created this recipe the other night when I wanted a "gourmet" burger. We really liked them! It looks complicated, but it’s not, I promise! I start cooking the mushrooms about 10-15 minutes before I start the burgers. I toasted the buns before serving, as well. This recipe is for two, but can easily be adjusted. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix meat, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and onion in a large bowl, just until ingredients are distributed evenly.
  2. Form two patties. Sprinkle steak seasoning on both sides of patties.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour (helps prevent patties from falling apart). This is when I wash and slice the mushrooms.
  4. Melt butter and extra virgin olive oil together in large skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Add garlic, sauté for 1 minute, being careful not to burn it.
  6. Add the mushrooms and sauté until tender, stirring often.
  7. Reduce heat to low, add Worcestershire sauce, stir and then season with salt and pepper. Keep warm until ready to serve.
  8. When burgers are ready to be cooked, heat a large skillet over moderately high heat.
  9. Add burgers. Don't move them, they fall apart easily. Cook for 6-8 minutes.
  10. Flip the burgers, very carefully. Cook for another 6-8 minutes, or until done.
  11. Turn off heat; top with cheese.
  12. When the cheese is melted, spread steak sauce on the buns, both sides. Put the burgers on the bottom bun and heap the mushrooms (lots and lots of mushrooms!) on top of the burger. Put the top bun on and enjoy!
