  • For extra flavor, sauté the mushrooms before adding them to the burger mixture.
  • Feel free to customize the recipe by adding other ingredients like caramelized onions or bacon.
  • Make sure not to overmix the burger mixture, as this can result in tough burgers.
  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure the burgers are cooked to a safe internal temperature of 160°F.


  • Substitute the ground beef with ground turkey or chicken for a lighter option.
  • Experiment with different types of cheese, such as cheddar, Swiss, or blue cheese.
  • Add a kick of heat with some diced jalapeños or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper.
  • For a vegetarian version, use a plant-based ground meat alternative and omit the egg.


If you have any leftover burger patties, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can also freeze the uncooked patties for up to 3 months. To reheat, simply cook them in a skillet over medium heat until heated through.
