Burgers with Mozzarella, Caramelized Onions, and Mushrooms

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. Galbani® Mozzarella Fresca™ Ball, cut into pieces
  • 4 oz. Galbani® Mozzarella, shredded
  • 4 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 large sweet onion, cut in 1/4 inch slices
  • 1 1/2 lb. lean ground beef
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh Italian parsley, minced
  • 6 hamburger rolls

Directions

  • Preheat broiler or grill.
  • In a large sauté pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms, season to taste, and cook for 10 minutes. Reserve.
  • Add remaining olive oil to the pan and reduce heat to medium low. Add onion, season to taste, and cook, stirring often until golden brown, about 10-12 minutes. Reserve.
  • In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, hand shredded mozzarella, salt, pepper, and parsley. Gently form the burger mixture into 6 patties. Grill or broil patties for approximately 5 minutes per side, or until the desired doneness is reached.
  • Top each burger with caramelized onions, a slice of mozzarella, and sautéed mushrooms. Wait until cheese is melted, and then serve on a roll with your favorite condiments.

Tips

  • Any mushroom works great in this recipe — button, crimini, portabella, or shiitake — so use whichever kind you like best. For a lighter, healthier burger, substitute ground turkey for the ground beef.
