Classic Blended Burger


This burger is juicier, tastier and more nutritious than any ordinary burger. The secret? Chopped mushrooms are blended into the ground beef.

Source: Why I Grill ambassador Bart Minor, president of the Mushroom Council and tireless advocate for making great burgers even better by blending with mushrooms.


  • 8 oz. of your favorite mushroom variety, finely chopped (suggested: crimini or white button)
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4-6 hamburger buns


  1. Add chopped mushrooms, ground meat and salt into a large bowl and mix until combined. Form into 4-5 large patties or 6 smaller patties.
  2. Set grill to medium-high heat.
  3. Grill the burger patties for approximately 4 minutes per side, or to your preferred level of doneness.
  4. Remove burger patties from heat.
  5. Briefly toast buns over cooling grill surface.
  6. Assemble burgers with your favorite toppings and condiments.


  • Use a food processor to chop the mushrooms faster. Briefly pulse just 4-5 times to a finely chopped, crumbly consistency.
  • For extra flavor, saut√© the chopped mushrooms. Let briefly cool before blending with meat and forming into patties.
