Hamburger Steaks w/ Sweet Onion & Mushrooms

IMG_7958

It’s Fast Friday again and time for another fast and fabulous dinner suggestion. If you are anything like me, by the time Friday rolls around the last thing I want to do is cook a big meal yet we all still have to eat. The dishes featured in this series aren’t necessarily fancy but they bring together simple ingredients most people already have in their pantries or have easy access to and allow you to put a real meal on the table in between 30 and 45 minutes. Enjoy and if you have your own fast recipes you want to share, please send them my way and I will in turn share them with all of my readers.

When is a cheeseburger not a simple cheeseburger? When it is topped with richly browned mushrooms, caramelized onions and gooey melted cheese. And that is exactly what this sophisticated take on a traditional staple is all about. The recipe is adapted from Cooking Light and is fast, delicious and decidedly not your kid’s burger. The mushrooms and onions are cooked until tender then drenched in red wine making for the perfect sauce. I like chestnut mushrooms but you can use whatever mild mushrooms you prefer. The same goes of the cheese. I’m a fan of Emmental but cheddar, munster or even a mild gorgonzola all work well.

And if you have more time this burger is delicious when accompanied by a side of crispy duck fat roasted potatoes. But whether you serve it alone or with a favorite side dish you are sure to love this burger.
