💡 Amira's Tips
- Don't overmix your ground beef. Overmixing can make your patties dense and chewy.
- I like to use a cast iron skillet or griddle pan to get a nice sear on the outside of these burgers. If you don't have cast iron use any type of heavy-bottomed skillet.
- When you are cooking the mushrooms and the onions watch them closely as they can burn quickly.
- If you are planning to cook these burgers in advance, don't top them with cheese until you are ready to assemble them as they are easier to reheat without the cheese.
- The internal temperature of your burgers should reach 160 degrees f with an instant-read thermometer.
Store leftover burgers ️can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
⌛ Make Ahead
Shape the patties, place on a plate and cover with plastic wrap. Store in the fridge until you are ready to cook the burgers.
🍽️ Serve With
- I love to serve burgers with a side of this easy Air Fryer Frozen Sweet Potato Fries . But, you could also give these Potato Cheese Balls a try.
- Big Mac Sauce Recipe is our favorite burger condiment.
- If you don't have Swiss cheese, any other melty cheese will work great too.
- Add some freshly chopped herbs like parsley or thyme for extra flavor.
- If you are not a fan of ground beef, you could switch it out and use ground turkey instead.
I like to reheat burger patties in a skillet on the stove top with a tablespoon of water. For a few minutes on each side.
The best way to clean mushrooms is to use a damp paper towel and gently wipe away any dirt or debris. You don't want to soak them in water as this can cause them to become soggy.
Yes! Cooked burger patties can be frozen for up to 3 months. To freeze them, let the cooked patties cool completely before transferring them to a freezer-safe container. Thaw the burgers in the refrigerator overnight and reheat them in a skillet on the stovetop with some oil.
