The Best Burgers You’ll Ever Eat (Made with Mushrooms!)

May 1, 2019

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.
