The Best Burgers You’ll Ever Eat (Made with Mushrooms!)
It’s National Burger Month, which means we are sharpening our knives, firing up the grills and getting ready for a month-long celebration of one of America’s greatest dishes: the burger (ranked #2 only behind Thanksgiving dinner).
The burger is comfort food at its finest, and with so many customizations there’s a burger for everyone.
- Vegetarian? Check.
- Meat lover? Check.
- Cheese, toppings, buns: Check, check, check.
One thing that we think everyone can agree on: adding mushrooms to the mix only makes a burger better. Whether meatless or classic, adding mushrooms means a meatier, juicier burger.
