Blended Classic Beef Burgers

Blended Classic Beef BurgersSink your teeth into a delicious burger made with a 50/50 blend of lean ground beef and finely chopped mushrooms.

½ lb. mushrooms, finely chopped
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 small onion, finely diced
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cup breadcrumbs
1 egg
6 hamburger buns
Toppings: Lettuce, tomato, onion, mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, pickles

Place the mushrooms in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped.

In a non-stick skillet over medium heat, cook chopped mushrooms until brown and most moisture has been released, about 3-5 minutes. Set aside to let cool.

In a large bowl combine mushrooms, beef, onion, garlic, breadcrumbs and egg; mix all ingredients until incorporated. Form into 6 patties, and cook either on the barbecue or on the stove-top until internal temperature reaches 160°F.

Place patty on warmed bun and top with lettuce, tomato and red onion.

Serves 6
