beef and mushroom burgers


  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, finely diced
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 1/4 cup shredded Manchego cheese


Combine ground beef, mushrooms, egg white, garlic, salt and pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.

Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.

Place burgers on bun bottoms. Top evenly with cheese. Close sandwich.

Test Kitchen Tips: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
