🧂 Ingredients Needed
- Ground Beef - you can substitute beef with ground pork, ground turkey, or chicken if you prefer leaner meats.

- Swiss Cheese - pairs well with mushrooms for perfect Swiss burgers.
- Buns - I used brioche buns for this beef burger but you can use your favorite buns.
- Sauteed Mushrooms - I like using baby bella mushrooms that have been sliced but you can use white mushrooms, golden mushrooms, or your favorite type of mushroom.
- Butter - adds richness to the flavor of the onions and mushrooms but you can just use olive oil.
- Salt and Pepper - use these to your preferred taste.
- Worcestershire Sauce - adds a tanginess to the meat that just gives it that burger perfection!
- Sweet Yellow Onion - can be substituted with a red onion or shallots.
- Combine ground beef with steak seasoning and Worcestershire sauce.
- Form the beef mixture into patties.
- Add half the butter to a hot pan and cook the burgers for 2 to 3 minutes on both sides.
- Top the burgers with a slice of Swiss cheese.
- In a separate pan, sautee the mushrooms and onion in the remaining butter until soft and caramelized.
- Place the burgers on top of the buns, then top with sauteed mushrooms and onions.
Absolutely! A grill or stovetop griddle will infuse these burgers with a smoky flavor that adds an extra layer of complexity to these shroom burgers.
Make sure your patties are well formed, and try to avoid making them too thick or too thin. Don't press down on the patties while cooking, as this can cause them to separate and also lose some of their juices.
You can! Substitute a veggie burger or make your patties with vegan meat. For the cheese, use a non-dairy substitute.
💭 Expert Tips and Tricks
- Avoid pressing down on the burgers while cooking. This can cause them to fall apart or dry out.
- Another way to keep your burgers together is to flip them just once. Let them cook as much as you need on one side before flipping to the other.
- Here's a handy guide for how long to cook burgers depending on how done you want them:
- Rare: 5 to 6 minutes total
- Medium-rare: 6 to 7 minutes total
- Medium: 8 to 9 minutes total
- Medium well/well done: 10 minutes or more
- At their rarest, your burgers should reach an internal temperature of at least 160 degrees F.
📌 This sauteed mushroom burger is the perfect way to scratch any fast food itch with a gourmet and filling dish! Serve with a side of fries and you've got yourself the perfect meal.
💡 Substitutions and Variations
- Fresh mushrooms are recommended for this recipe, but if you don't have access to them, you can use canned mushrooms.
- Feel free to add any toppings you like such as bacon, avocado, truffle mayo, or tomato to make the burger your own.
- Soy sauce can be substituted for Worcestershire for the same umami flavor.
- Feel free to use provolone, gouda cheese, or your favorite cheese instead of Swiss.
🥫 Storage and Reheating
Store leftover shroom burgers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Store the cooked patties separate from the buns and sauteed mushrooms to avoid things getting too soft or soggy. To reheat, you can either heat in the microwave or pop them back onto a hot pan until heated through.
⏲️ Make Ahead Instructions
You can prepare the burger patties ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator until ready to grill, or freeze them for up to 3 months. You can also prepare the mushroom and onion mixture a day ahead of time and reheat before using.
