Classic Blended Burger
Your new favorite burger: the classic blended burger. A blended burger combines finely chopped mushrooms and ground meat to make a juicier, more delicious burger patty.
For extra flavor, sauté the chopped mushrooms first. Let briefly cool before blending with meat and forming into patties.
- 8 ounces of your favorite mushroom variety, finely chopped (suggested: crimini or white button)
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4-6 buns
- Add chopped mushrooms, ground meat and salt into a large bowl and mix until combined. Form into 4-5 large patties or 6 smaller patties.
- Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the burger patties approximately 4 minutes per side, or to your preferred level of doneness. Remove burger patties from heat and toast buns in the same skillet.
- Assemble burgers with your favorite toppings and condiments.
Yield: 4 to 6 burgers
