Tonight marks the end of my summer grilling challenge! Here's my recap of last week's grill: the Mushroom Burger.
We've tried portabella mushrooms before, and, try as we might, neither of us can bring ourselves to like mushrooms. For this recipe, I decided to substitute regular old ground beef for the patty.
I couldn't find ciabatta rolls at Trader Joe's, so I got this incredible ciabatta loaf instead. I also had to look up cornichons online - I had no idea they were basically mini pickles.
I set out all the ingredients and started heating the grill. This time I wish I would have made the relish before putting the patties together because the grill time for the beef was so short.
I got it all worked out and toasted the bread in my normal toaster to save time while the burgers were grilling. This one was pretty simple compared to some of the other recipes. I just had to put the cheese, relish, lettuce, and burger patty together on the ciabatta!
These were so delicious. The relish was fun and the burgers were juicy. The toasted bread was just perfect, especially since I got to cut it to the size I wanted. (Sometimes there is just too much bun, you know?)
I served the burgers with our new favorite beer, Swill, from 10 Barrel Brewing Co. in Bend.
Tonight we grill the final burger! I've been saving the Beef, Bacon, and Egg Burger for last. And we have finally gotten some fall weather here in Portland, so it will be the perfect comfort food. I'll let you know how they turn out.
In case you missed my other burger adventures, here they are!
