Now, I have to wonder if you’re thinking what I thought when Mike first said, “honey we are eating burgers tonight”. I was excited and said great. Out comes the mushrooms and ingredients. Hmm silly me for thinking I was about to devour a fat juicy hamburger! I was pleasantly surprised as we had some pretty fantastic tasting mushroom burgers.
Seriously, these are incredible and so much healthier for us. The recipe we used was from GroupRecipes. It took about 30 minutes between the prep work and the first bite.
3 fork beaten eggs
3 cups coarse chopped mushrooms ( 8 oz )
1/2 cup flour shopping list
1/2 cup seasoned fine dry breadcrumbs
1/3 finely chopped onion
1 clove minced garlic ( optional )
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
1/4 tsp pepper
cooking oil as needed
- Combine all ingredients.
- Use 1/3 cup mixture for each patty and shape into a 3 1/2 inch pattie.
- Heat some oil over medium high heat in heavy duty skillet.
- Fry patties 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
- Serve as is on a bun with a slice of cheese if desired.
Try them and let me know what you think. We’ve made these twice and both times they were well received with the kids. Most of the recipe’s we are trying tend to lean towards the vegetarian side but only because the recipe looks good not because I’m ready to give up beef. Umm that’s a definite NO. 🙂
