Mushroom, Onion & Swiss BurgerI’d say that sauteed mushrooms and onions are one of the best toppings for a burger in the world. And, the “old-standbys” become that way for good reason – because they’re awesome. The preparation of the mushroom and onions takes but a few minutes, but lifts your burger into a different stratosphere than a plain ol’ cheeseburger.

I was actually planning on making these In-n-Out copycats, when I realized I was out of pickles (the horror!) so had to change my tactics. I had a half of a package of mushrooms in the fridge, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use them! Sauteed them with onion until golden, grilled the burgers, let the gooey Swiss melt – dinner was served, and it was a damn fine burger!

This really just made me hungrier for backyard BBQ’s with friends in the months ahead. Also, the beach! My mom & dad got us a portable Weber propane grill this year for Christmas. So, we’re looking forward to grilling burgers both bayside and oceanside this year! It’s also great to take to the park and grill some hot dogs for lunch while the boys play. And, I love that I can do it by myself – without Jon’s help. I see us getting quite a bitΒ  of use out of it in the coming months. Come on, summertime!

    My mouth is watering! Mushrooms and onions are my burger and pizza toppings of choice πŸ™‚ I am SO ready for it to be grill season again, especially since it seems to snow every other day this month…

    You may want to specify why there are 2 garlic cloves in the list of ingredients. I’m sure they’re probably mixed with the beef, but it’s not stated anywhere. πŸ™‚

      Luis, it actually goes into the mushroom and onion mixture. I’ve corrected the error, thanks for the heads up!

    I got the onion buns at the deli and use those instead of regular hamburger buns and that is the best. I’ve made these a few times and they are close your eyes and moan delicious.
