Move over, McWhopper, there’s a new burger in town
Calling carnivores and vegetarians alike, we’ve got burger recipes for everyone.
The Big Mac, the Whopper, the… Blended Burger? That’s right! This National Burger Month, we’re stepping into the ring and upping the burger game: more nutrients, more juiciness, more umami. How you ask? Simply by replacing 25 percent or more of the ground meat with finely chopped mushrooms (same texture, better flavor!). Not into meat? Not a problem. At the Mushroom Council, we’ve been known to make a mighty fine vegetarian burger or two.
Try these Burger Recipes for National Burger Month:
Blended Bison and Mushroom Burgers
Blending mushrooms with lean meats, such as bison, is the trick to keeping burgers juicy and tender. Serve these burgers bun free for a protein-packed meal.
Grilled Portobello Burgers with Garlic Mayo
Marinated in homemade barbecue spice mix, these vegetarian portobello burgers are loaded with sweet grilled red onions and savory garlic-chive mayo. Best paired with backyard bbqs.
Italian Turkey Sausage Sliders
There’s a lot to love about these tiny turkey sausage sliders. Blended with whole baby portabellas and paired with peppers, these bite-sized burgers will satisfy the biggest cravings.
Italian Style Shiitake Pecan Burger
Here’s one to get a little nuts about: toasted pecans, shiitake mushrooms, caramelized onions and sun-dried tomatoes come together to bring this veggie burger to full flavor.
Shiitake Pork Burger with Banh Mi Slaw
Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes…and in this case, loaded with banh mi slaw. Pork and shiitake mushrooms blend together for an umami-packed flavor experience like you’ve never had before.
Mushroom Haloumi Burgers
No meat, no bun, no problem! Stack portabella mushroom caps with char-grilled peppers, a thick slice of seared haloumi cheese and caramelized onions.
