Mushroom Swiss Cheese Burgers
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings 4: medium burgers
Author: Mahy

1 1/2 pounds of ground beef ( lean or extra lean-your choice)
3/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of fresh cracked pepper
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
1/2 teaspoon of rubbed rosemary leaves
pinch of red pepper flakes (optional-but recommended)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 cup of sliced cremini mushrooms
4 (or more) slices of Swiss cheese
4 best soft burger buns
Choice of condiments : mayo , mustard, ketchup , ranch (or your choice)
Choice of toppings: Arugula , sliced red onions,sliced tomatoes (or your choice)

Prepare the burgers by adding all the seasoning spices to the ground beef : the salt, pepper, onion and garlic powders, rosemary and red pepper flakes (if using). And shape your patties to your desired thickness and size.

Preheat a skillet ( or grill pan) over medium high heat and add in the olive oil. Sauté the mushrooms with a pinch of salt for just a minute, then remove on to a plate and set aside.
To that same skillet (or grill pan) add the burger patties ( no need to add an extra oil).

Sear the burgers for about 5 minutes and flip them. Sear for an extra 5-7 minutes ( you might end up searing for 7 minutes per side if you prefer a thick burger) until the burgers are just cooked.

Lower the heat to medium low and divide the sautéed mushrooms on top of the burgers. Then place a slice ( or more) of Swiss cheese over them.

Cover the skillet with a lid or tent loosely with aluminum foil for just 30 seconds until the cheese melts. Turn off the heat.

Slice the burger buns and slather them with your favorite condiments and pile on your favorite toppings.

Then place the burger on top at the centre of the bun.
