This mushroom Swiss burger has a secret twist-  where are the mushrooms? Tucked inside with the moist juicy beef.

I mean, like I said, I could talk burgers all week, but your best  chance to  nail me  down on  the topic is at a Twitter  party,  where I just can’t keep my mouth shut about  burgers (unless I have a burger in it).

Mushroom Swiss Burgers

My first  burger of the  month (I will be posting two) is for a Mushroom  Swiss Burger.

I love mushrooms! And I love burgers! But usually when you  put those two together,  you will find me wandering off to nibble on something else. Oh my,  but WHY?

You see, I just hate  it when the sliced mushrooms escape and fall on me with bits and bobs of steak sauce or mustard or whatever else stains you.

What’s The Secret?

But I have a secret recipe here, and that secret is that the mushrooms become secret…you know I locked them  up into the  meat so they won’t escape while eating this yummy sandwich.

Now don’t worry–this isn’t some funky-assed bread crumb filler that leaves your burger tasting more like meatloaf.

Actually, the mushrooms fit right  in, and even serve to make the meat  very  juicy and moist–so if  you are one  of the heathen that dries out a burger from overcooking it, this will  save your  life. I really don’t think it’s possible to dry this one  out.

Which gives you a little extra room, especially if you are grilling this to give it  a little char. Because char is good!

Or if you make this indoors on a particularly rainy day as I did this one—that’s fine too. Your kitchen will be smelling marvellous all day long.

  1. I LOVE that you put mushrooms IN the burgers! I’ve done that with meatballs before … must remember to put some in my burgers too next time.
