I had fun today, got experimental and made burger patties out of mushrooms. I read somewhere that you can use mushrooms in place of ground beef, so i decided to have a go at burgers! They came out delicious, I may prefer them to the ground beef burgers. Next we will have to try them on the barbecue grill and see how they hold up.
I was only cooking for myself tonight, so this is just the ingredients for one burger. Increase according to the servings desired.
1 cup Mushroom
1/4 cup Panko
1 tsp horseradish mustard
1 tbsp onion flakes
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp Fortner’s #75 blend
1 egg white
Use a knife and hand chop or use a food processor to finely chop the mushroom. In a bowl add panko, seasonings, mustard and egg white and mix thoroughly until fully combined. Form into a patty.
Heat a skillet on medium heat and spray with butter cooking spray. Cook patty until browned and crispy one each side.
At this point you might want to melt cheese on the patty or grill onions to top the burger. You can also eat the burger patty with lettuce or cabbage wrap instead of a bun.
