1/2 lb. mushrooms, finely chopped
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 small onion, finely diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
6 hamburger buns
Toppings: Lettuce, tomato, onion, mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, pickles, American cheese
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, red onion and cheese.
