“Absolutely fantastic”. We both agree, these fiery mushroom burgers were absolutely fantastic. The flavor of the mushrooms is so savory, deep, fantastic…. all with just the right amount of spiciness. Originally, the recipe for the mushrooms (from a 2021 issue of Louisiana Kitchen and Culture magazine, a long-time favorite of mine) was meant as a topping for steak. But I immediately thought of it on burgers. And they definitely did not disappoint.

A Real Keeper Recipe

This recipe is one of those that goes into my ‘go-to’ folder of keepers. Destined to be made again and again. To be truthful, this blog is my recipe ‘box’. I got tired of searching all over the house or thru my emails for my favorite things to make. Now I just post them here!

Spot-On Great Burgers

These fiery mushroom burgers hit the spot. I don’t ever see myself even tweaking the recipe, changing this or that. Nope. This is it right here. And any time I need mushrooms (and boy would these be great on Salisbury steak), I’m making these.

Also try my blue cheese burgers with caramelized onions and my classic brat burgers.
