Recipe: Balsamic BBQ Burgers

Unfortunately, I didn’t take a pic when I made these, so you’ll have to use your imagination.

I posted that I was going to test out a new recipe on Facebook a few weeks ago, and some friends showed interest. I promised I would blog the recipe if it worked out. So, as promised, here it is!

Ingredients:

-4-5 sliced mushrooms
-balsamic vinegar and olive oil
-500 g ground beef
-1 egg
-about 1/2 cup oatmeal
-a couple of tablespoons of flour

Directions:
Soak the mushrooms in the vinegar and oil for a few hours. I put mine in a container and scattered them with a few spoon fulls of oil and vinegar, and shook the mixture every so often. You can even leave it overnight if you want the flavours to blend. Shortly before you make the burger, puree them in a blender. Mix them in with the beef, egg, and oatmeal. It’s best if you use your hands to knead the mixture. Add a few tablespoons of flour to keep everything together. Form into patties. If the mixture seems crumbly, try adding more flour, or another egg if it’s really bad. It makes about 6 burgers.

Good toppings include:
-sun-dried tomatoes
-goat cheese
-avocado
-red onions
-arugula

I used all of the above, and it tasted amazing!
