How to Make Mushroom Swiss Burgers

These are some of the easiest burgers to make! We’ll start with the mushroom topping and then cook the meat and assemble. Just follow the step-by-step instructions and you’ll see how fast these burgers come together.

For the Mushrooms

  1. Sauté: Heat the butter in a skillet over medium high heat. Add in the mushrooms and shallot, saute for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add Sauce and Garlic: Add in the Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and salt and pepper. Sauté another 2-3 minutes. Remove the mushrooms from heat and set aside.

For the Burger

  1. Cook the Meat: Place two patties on the hot griddle or skillet and season with salt and pepper. You can cook all of the hamburgers at the same time if your griddle will fit them all.
  2. Add Cheese: Cook the burgers 2-3 minutes on each side, placing a slice of the Swiss cheese on the patty once it’s been flipped. Once the patties are cooked, butter and toast the buns on the same skillet.
  3. Assemble: Start by spreading mayonnaise on the bottom and top bun, place the patty with the Swiss cheese on the bottom bun, spread a generous helping of the mushrooms on top of the patty, top the burger with the top bun.

Tips and Variations

Here are some suggestions to keep in mind when you are making the best burgers. You will love how simple these mushroom Swiss burgers come together!

  • Keep it Cold and Do Not Over-Mix: For juicy beef, keep it cold so that the fat doesn’t melt before cooking. Over-mixing the meat will break down fibers causing your burger to crumble and become dry.
  • Don’t Press: When cooking the patties, resist the urge to press down on the meat. This squeezes out all those lovely juices that are meant to be inside.
  • Let it Rest: Let the hamburger rest for 5-10 minutes after cooking to allow the juices to distribute throughout the patty.
  • Using a Grill: To grill your patties, heat your grill up to medium high (400-425 degrees Fahrenheit). Once your grill is up to temp, brush grates with some olive oil. Then place your patties onto your grill and cover. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side. They should temp out between 135-145 degrees Fahrenheit for medium burgers or 155-160 degrees Fahrenheit for well done.
  • More Cheese: You can melt 2 slices of Swiss cheese on each patty, if you like more cheese.
  • Different Protein: This recipe works great swapping the regular patty out for a turkey or veggie burger!

Storing Leftovers

I recommend enjoying these burgers fresh, but you can store any leftovers for a quick lunch or dinner the next day.

  • In the Refrigerator: Store cooked patties and mushrooms in separate airtight containers or sealed bags for up to 3 days.
  • In the Freezer: Leftover patties can be kept in a freezer bag for 2-3 months. I recommend putting parchment paper between each patty so they don’t stick together. Thaw overnight in the fridge before reheating.
  • Reheating: Reheat your burgers over the stove on medium heat until warmed through or pop them in the oven for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, flipping halfway through the cooking time.
