Hamburgers are one of North America’s favorite meals and are made with a variety of meats. This version includes caramelized mushrooms on top served on a toasted sesame seed bun. The way you decide to dress them is entirely up to your imagination.

Ingredients – Hamburgers
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2lb ground beef
1 tsp ground oregano
1 tsp mustard powder
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp Pub Style Dijon mustard
1 tsp Kosher salt

Ingredients – Mushrooms
2 tbsp clarified butter
1 tsp Kosher salt
5 to 6 large mushrooms

Heat a frying pan for a few minutes and then add the oil. Add the onion, mustard powder, oregano and garlic and cook until the onion is translucent (approximately 3 minutes). In a mixing bowl add the ground beef, cooked onion mix, bread crumbs, mustard, salt, Parmesan cheese and egg. Mix together well. Form 4” balls with your hands and place on a wax paper lined tray. Place a sheet of wax paper on top of the balls and with the back of a spatula, press down to form patties.

Slice the mushrooms to a 1/4” thickness. Heat the butter in a pan and add the mushrooms and salt, cooking until the mushrooms are browned. Set aside.

Heat a ridged frying pan for a few minutes (coated cast iron works best). It is not necessary to add oil, but I prefer to add one tablespoon of olive oil at this point (I find it gives a better sear). If you are adding oil, wait one minute before placing the patties (they should sizzle when they hit the pan). After 3 minutes, turn the patties over. They should have started to get golden brown half way up the side. Cook for 6 to 10 minutes, depending on how you prefer them (6 minutes for medium rare and 10 minutes for well done).

Serve with choice of toppings and caramelized mushrooms. Makes 6 hamburgers.
