Tuxedo Mushroom Burgers

4 to 6 servings

Turn an ordinary hamburger into an epicurean delight.


  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • Sour cream, optional, for serving
  • Mustard, optional, for serving


Preheat a grill or broiler.

In a skillet, saute the mushrooms in butter with the garlic, 1 teaspoon of the oregano, and the salt and pepper until just tender. Remove from heat; stir in the Parmesan cheese. Keep warm.

Season the beef with the remaining teaspoon oregano and salt and pepper. Form into 4 or 6 equal balls. Make a large depression in each; fill the cavities with half of the sauteed mushrooms, dividing equally. Mold the beef up around the mushrooms to enclose; press gently to form patties.

Broil or grill to desired doneness. Top with the remaining sauteed mushrooms. Serve with sour cream or mustard, as desired.
