Servings: 1

Mushroom Burger:
1 slice American cheese

1 slice Swiss cheese

2 portobello mushroom caps, de-stemmed

½ cup breadcrumbs

1 egg, beaten

½ cup flour

Vegetable oil, for deep frying


2 tablespoon mayonnaise

1 tablespoon ketchup

1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon garlic salt

¼ tablespoon hot chili sauce


Tomato, sliced

Onions, sliced

Pickles, sliced (optional)

Burger buns


1. Line a plate with two paper towels. Place two small portobello mushroom caps on the paper towels, then cover with two more paper towels. Top with another plate.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, and hot chili sauce.

3. Place a slice of Swiss cheese down on a counter top, then place a slice of American cheese on top, folding the corners of the American cheese in towards the center. Do the same with Swiss cheese, forming a ball shape.

4. Place the cheese ball on one mushroom cap and then sandwich the other on top of it, pressing down to make the mushroom edges touch. Take a piece of clear plastic wrap and wrap it around the mushroom burger, twisting the sides like a piece of candy to release all of the air. Tuck the plastic wrap under the mushroom and refrigerate for 10-15 minutes.

5. Put the egg, flour, and bread crumbs into 3 separate bowls.

6. Remove plastic and coat mushroom burger in flour, egg, then bread crumbs. Dip in egg wash and bread crumbs one more time.

7. Heat vegetable oil in a large pan until it is 375ºF/190ºC and fry mushroom burger for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown.

8. Remove burger onto paper towel to drain excess oil and let cool 1-2 minutes.

9. Assemble burger, spread special sauce on buns, and enjoy!
