If you love sauteed mushrooms and grilled onions, this Mushroom Onion Swiss Burger is for you.
I have included step by step instructions for you to make this wonderful mushroom onion Swiss burger.
Prepare The Cayenne Ranch Dressing
This is one of my favorite dressings. If you like a kicked up Ranch dressing, this recipe is for you. It is perfect for this mushroom onion swiss burger. You can see the full Cayenne Ranch recipe on an earlier post. Cayenne Ranch Ingredients include Hidden Valley Ranch Dry Salad Dressing, mayonnaise, buttermilk, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, plus Hot sauce, and Cayenne pepper. It is the perfect blend of spices for a flavorful Cayenne Ranch Dressing.
Preparing burgers on a griddle is my favorite way to fix a hamburger. This Mushroom Onion Swiss burger is super juicy cooked on the griddle. I wrote a review about this Blackstone Portable Griddle which I highly recommend. The bonus is it is lightweight enough to take anywhere. We use it in our backyard plus take it in our RV. You can see the full review on an earlier post. I did not get paid for these posts but I added a link at the bottom of this post to the griddle. If you purchase the griddle, I will make a small commission. It WILL NOT increase the price. See my full disclosure.
PATTY AND SEASON THE GROUND BEEF
Mix the seasonings into the ground beef. Patty the burgers. Weigh each ground beef patty or use a large ice cream scoop to ensure the same size patty. Having the burgers the same size will help them cook more consistently. After you, patty the burgers, rest them in the refrigerator at least a couple of hours to overnight.
COOK THE BACON
You could easily prepare the bacon on the griddle but I like preparing it in the oven. Cooking bacon in the oven is the easiest way to prepare bacon. There is No cleanup when fixing it in the oven. You completely line a baking sheet with heavy-duty foil. When you are done cooking the bacon, you simply toss the foil in the oven. Oven bacon comes out flat which makes it perfect for placing on a burger. Recipe For Oven-Fried Bacon
Add vegetable oil to the griddle when it is hot and saute the onions. You will need 2 to 3 tablespoon of vegetable oil.
Season the onions with salt and pepper.
Add the mushrooms on the other side of the griddle the same time as the onions. Be sure the vegetable oil is hot.
Season and mushrooms with the onions with salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce.
Remove the onions when they are caramelized and the mushrooms are tender. This will take about 15 minutes.
COOK THE BURGERS
Cook burgers on the griddle about 4 minutes on each side for a medium burger. Add cheddar cheese to each burger a minute or two before removing them from the griddle. We use sharp cheddar on these burgers.
ADD THE CHEESE
Add a piece of Swiss Cheese to each burger one to two minutes before removing from griddle.
