1 Portobello mushroom cap, stem and gills removed, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
4 ounces Cabot Alpine Cheddar, Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar or Cabot Horseradish Cheddar shredded (about 1 cup)
2 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat
¾ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon granulated garlic powder
1 pound lean ground beef, 90 to 93% lean
Fresh ground pepper
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 buns, preferably whole-grain, toasted if desired
4 large slices tomato
4 leaves green-leaf lettuce, onion slices, reduced fat mayo and pickle chips, if desired
MIX mushroom, cheese, breadcrumbs, salt and garlic powder together in a large bowl with clean hands. Add beef and gently break up the meat and toss with the cheese mixture. Gently press meat and cheese mixture together, kneading ever so slightly. Do not over work or it’ll be spongy. Form into four 4-inch patties. Sprinkle with pepper.
BRUSH oil over the bottom of a large non-stick pan and heat over medium heat. Add patties and cook until crispy and browned on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Turn gently and continue cooking until the burgers are cooked through and the cheese is melting out the sides of the patties, about 5 minutes more. Let rest 2 minutes before assembling on the buns with optional accompaniments.

These burgers were delicious!! I used the Alpine as suggested , which is my favorite and always have on hand, and plan to make these again soon. The flavor was excellent and my family enjoyed them. You would never really know there was mushroom with them chopped so fine so don’t shy away if mushrooms aren’t really your thing. Next time though I will cut back on the salt and maybe increase the garlic powder a little. Two thumbs up!
