Mushroom and Mozzarella Burgers


I made these burgers many moons ago for a friend who is a veggie, they went down so well back then that they continually come up in conversation whenever we get talking about food together. The reason as to why I cooked them this time is that my girlfriend just loves Mushrooms & Mozzarella and also Sara has been asking for the recipe.

When serving I serve in a lightly toasted bun with some caramelized onions, I always serve whatever burger it is I make with Corn on the Cob and today I also made a Tomato stuffed with leftover red onion & mozzarella.

Makes 2 burgers

Ingredients


5 medium sized mushrooms
1 small red onion
1 clove of garlic
50g buffalo mozzeralla
50g white flour
Sprinkle mixed herbs
2 slices of white bread
Knob of butter & drizzle of vegetable oil

Cooking utensils
Food Processor
Large mixing bowl
Chopping Board
Sharp Knife
Non Stick Frying pan
Oven dish

PREHEAT OVEN TO 180C

Preparation


- Blitz your white bread in your food processor until very fine
 

- Chop your mushroom, garlic & onion roughly and then blitz in food processor until a even consistency
- Chop your mozzeralla into small even sized pieces

Method/Cooking

- In a large mixing bowl combine the mushrooms/onion/garlic/mozzeralla mixture
- I like to add the bread gradually and feel the texture of the burger…the bread is added to remove the moisture
- Finally add your flour again in stages and check for the moisture
 

- Separate the mixture into 2 even balls and make 2 burgers.
- Preheat your frying pan to medium high and add your butter/oil
 

- Cook the burgers for 3 minutes each side so that you seal them


- Transfer to a oven dish and cook in your pre-heated oven for 5-7 minutes
 

- When cooked transfer to a toasted burger bun and serve as you desire
 
ENJOY!!!
