The flavour and texture of these burgers will make even the biggest meat lovers think they were made with 100% beef.



8 oz (250 g) fresh button mushrooms
¼ cup (60 mL) oats
1 lb (500 g) lean ground beef
1 pkt (5 g) Mushroom Seasoning Blend
1 tsp (5 mL) salt
6 slices Cheddar cheese
6 hamburger rolls
Traditional toppings such as:


Place the mushrooms and oats in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped. Add the beef, seasoning blend and salt. Pulse until well combined. Form the mixture into six 4-inch patties.

Set a greased grill pan over medium-high heat. Place the burgers on the pan, and cook, without turning, for 5 to 7 minutes. Flip burgers and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add cheese and cook for 1 minute more. Serve on hamburger rolls with traditional toppings.


Variation: For a gourmet cheeseburger replace the Cheddar with crumbled blue cheese and garnish with caramelized onions.

Tip: Chill the patties for 30 minutes before cooking on an outdoor grill to ensure they hold together well and flip easily.
