Lisa’s been obsessed with making mushroom burgers since she heard her friend Cathy raving about the one she had in a Roseville restaurant. After scouring the net for recipes, she got ideas for the basic ingredient list and came up with this particular combination, featuring mixed wild mushrooms, breadcrumbs, oats, and spices. We dressed the burger with grilled onions, arugula, and chipotle mayo, and served it with baked acorn squash from our CSA box.
Whoa, these are awesome. Good job!
They don’t need to be cooked more?
I don’t think so — the texture is perfect. Chewy in the middle, and a nice crisp crust.
Well I’m glad you like them, we have four more left over!
Wahoo, I’ll take ‘em!
They are pretty delicious… good job on the chipotle mayo.
Thanks for actually giving me something to do — you know it kills me when I’m not involved in the cooking…
Lisa’s Mushroom Burgers
1 tsp + 1 tbsp olive oil
3 cups coarse chopped mushrooms (we used a combination of cremini, shiitake and portobello)
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
6 cloves minced garlic
2/3 cup oats
1/3 cup shredded parmesan
2/3 – 3/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/3 cup egg beaters
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Heat 1 tsp oil in large saucepan. Saute the mushrooms, onions and garlic over low heat for about five minutes, or until soft. In large bowl, add mushroom mixture to oats, parmesan, breadcrumbs, eggs,
parsley, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix well. Shape into patties. Heat 1 TB oil in large saucepan. Fry patties, cooking about 4 minutes on each side – or until golden brown.
