Mushroom Swiss Butter Burgers

Posted on Updated on


What you need: (Makes about 6 large burgers)

  • About 3 lbs ground beef ( I used 80/20)
  • 1/2 lb button mushrooms
  • Baby Swiss cheese slices
  • Sea salt 
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup Flour 
  • 1 tbs olive oil or butter for mushrooms
  • 3 Tbs salted butter

Let’s get to cookin:

Make the patties. 

I like to use the burger press. You can get different variations at places like Cabelas, Bass Pro shops or just cheapie plastic ones at WalMart. If not just press them by hand.  

Make each pattie thin because you will be adding butter to the center and then pressing them together (Burgers end up about 3/4 inch thick to 1 inch)  

Add about 1/4 inch butter (about 1/4 Tbs so about 3 tsp). If using unsalted butter add about 1/2 tsp salt and if desired 1/2 tsp pepper.  

Mesh the two burgers together with the seasoned butter in between. Make sure the sides are sealed pretty good. 

In addition I like to sauté the mushrooms before hand and melt the cheese over them on top of the burgers.

Burger Seasoning. 

To make season for burger, mix about 1/2 tsp salt, 1 /2 Tbs pepper with your 1/2 cup flour. Toss them into a bowl to coat and shake off the excess. 

Grill them up:

Preheat then oil your grill and throw the burgers on. Cook about 10 min on low heat each side or until done to your liking. 


 Get the mushrooms ready:

Slice each nice and thick about 1/4 inch. Sauté about 5 min each side with olive oil or butter on med heat. Get flippy here as not to burn them. 
Finishing Up:

During the last 2 min add the mushrooms then the cheese and close the lid. Done, Yum!
