Thick, creamy mushroom burger goodness awaits you! Oh, and there’s the added bonus of a little crunch from some French fried onions too! Now, you could up and ‘cheat’ and just warm up some canned cream of mushroom soup and make these burgers, but believe me, making the creamy mushroom sauce is very easy, and it tastes soooo much better than anything you’d ever get out of a can.

Creamy Mushroom Burger

This creamy mushroom burger almost like having a mushroom stroganoff on a bun. It’s messy. Like a good burger should be. It’s gonna drip every time you take a bit. That’s a good thing. You’re gonna get sauce all over your mouth. You’re supposed to.

I like to save a little piece of the bun for the very end. It makes for the perfect tool for sopping up all those drippings that made it onto the plate.

This delicious burger is another fantastic recipe from Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr, from the Food Network.

Also try my Cuban burgers.
