Mushroom Burgers

Hello all you fellow food lovers, cooks, friends and bloggers. This recipe was a new one for me. My sister actually made these before I did and insisted I try them. I’m a HUGE fan of mushrooms. I’ve had several people tell me that mushrooms taste a lot like beef when prepared as burger patties. Mushrooms also have a lot of health benefits!


I served the burgers with sweet potato fries. Well, they are more like sweet potato rounds.



Start chopping up your mushrooms. Get ready to chop away. This is when I wish I had a sous chef! Winking smile



Sauté your mushrooms with onion


Mix together your bread crumbs and seasonings.


Mix together your mushroom mixture and egg with the breadcrumbs to from patties


Grill just like you would grill burgers. As you can see I had to make a beef burger for Kyle. He was afraid he was going to miss the meat in this meal.


I turns out he ended up eating a half of a mushroom burger and surprisingly liked it. I knew he would, he loves mushrooms.



I wouldn’t say it taste like beef but it’s a nice spin on your good ole burger. I dare you to try it! I topped mine with a little miracle whip with lettuce and tomato on a whole wheat bun.

Mushroom Burger


1 Cup of Button Mushrooms, chopped

1 Cup of Portabella Mushrooms, chopped

3. Once your mushrooms are cooked mix with your dry mixture and add your egg yolk. Form into 4 patties.

4. Cook on grill or skillet until done.
