I decided to stuff all of the toppings into the burgers so we didn't have a mess with everything falling off of them when we were eating. I find it to be a pain when toppings fall all over the place and you don't get to eat them with the burger.
I pan fried these because it's been raining and very windy here for the last two days - not good for grilling.
makes 6 - 8 burgers
2 lbs 80% ground beef
3/4 C. chopped mushrooms
3/4 C. shredded cheddar cheese
2 TBSP Montreal steak seasoning
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
I divided the 2 lbs of meat into 6 burger. If you like smaller burgers, you can easily divide it into 8.
Mix the steak seasoning, garlic powder and onion powder into the meat. Be careful not to over mix or it will make the meat tough.
Divide each burger into 2 pieces.
Divide the mushrooms and cheese evenly among the burgers, laying the toppings on one of the two pieces of each burger.
Place the second half of the burger on top of the cheese. Pinch the edges together all the way around the burger to seal. Pan fry until cooked to your liking.
The family had fries with their burgers. I had a side of sauteed kale with mine. (above photo)
