A few decades ago, no one would associate mushrooms with burgers. The latter has long been a symbol of American fast food and, in the eyes of many, is incompatible with traditional cuisine.
However, this view has changed radically with vegetarian and vegan cuisine. Burgers can now be found in many creative variations at gourmet restaurants.
My juicy and crispy mushroom burgers are bulgur topped with garlic and onion, parsley, mustard and Worcestershire sauce, topped with spicy cheddar.
Ingredients for two mushroom burgers
60 g of bulgur
1 medium onion
1 clove of garlic
300 g of medium-sized brown mushrooms
4 tablespoons of olive oil, salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 egg, 40 g breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
15 g of medium hot mustard
enough oil to fry burgers
2 burger buns or buns of your choice.
80 grams of ketchup
about 10 black peppercorns
1/2 medium red onion
2 slices cheddar
some parsley leaves
1. Cook bulgur according to package directions and cool.
2. Chop the onion, chop the garlic and chop the mushroom.
3. Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan. Fry chopped onion and garlic in it until transparent.
4. Add the mushroom slices and 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the onion and garlic in the pan and fry until nice and dark brown. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside with lid on top. Please keep warm.
5. Finely chop the parsley leaves.
6. Place the cooled bulgur in a bowl along with the semi-roasted mushroom slices, parsley, egg, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
7. Cut the red onion into half rings.
8. Finely chop the pepper and mix it with ketchup in a small bowl.
9. Pour a sufficient amount of oil into the heated pan (it should be low). Make two burgers from the bulgur mixture and fry in hot oil until crispy on both sides.
10. For a fan oven, preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
11. Place half of the burger buns and fried burgers on a wire rack lined with parchment paper. Place a slice of cheddar on each burger.
The cheddar slices should wrap around the top of the hamburger a bit because they are soft from the heat. It takes about 5-10 minutes.
12. Now coat the burger buns with the ketchup and pepper mixture and a dollop of mustard.
13. Place flat-leaf parsley on top of the ketchup and mustard layer. Next comes the burgers with mild cheddar slices, leftover fried mushroom slices, onion rings and half a bun for toppings.
