sweet paprika powder

hot mustard flavor



Burger bun (burger bun)



Cheddar cheese

Slices of gornichka according to taste

Clean and finely chop the mushrooms. Peel the onion, chop it finely, season it well with salt. Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a large pan and fry the onion and mushrooms until light brown. Peel the garlic, mince it and mix it. Season with salt and place in a bowl.

Finely chop the bread. Finely chop the marjoram. Add paprika powder, 1 tablespoon of mustard and egg to the mushrooms and mix well. Season the mixture again with salt if necessary, then form 4 patties with wet hands. Turn the oven to 100 degrees.

Place the burger buns on a plate in the oven and cover with a metal pan. Brush patties with olive oil and fry in a covered pan over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side. Turn again, cover with cheese (pan lid or plate) and fry for another 1 minute.

Remove half of the buns from the oven, spread ketchup and mustard on top of the patties, and top with cucumber. put the lid on. Put the finished hamburgers under the plate and cover structure in a warm oven (100 degrees) for another 6-8 minutes. This makes them super tender, even more melty and buttery soft.


  • Chop the mushrooms 2 hours in advance and spread them out on a baking sheet to dry for 2-3 hours – this will greatly enhance the flavor.
  • The shiitake mushrooms make the burger even sweeter.
  • Make a double cheese out of it: cheddar sauce, raclette cheese, fried onions, chili sauce.
