Spicy Mushroom Burgers

Here's a new twist on plain ol' hamburgers - if you like mushrooms and enjoy spicy foods, this recipe is for you! The recipe makes 4 burgers, but doubles easily.

1 lb ground beef
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup soft bread crumbs
2 Tbs ketchup
1/3 cup finely chopped canned mushrooms, drained
1 Tbs hot pepper relish (I use Mama T's Hot Pepper Relish)
1/2 tsp dried basil, crushed
4 hamburger buns

Combine egg and ketchup in a large bowl, then stir in breadcrumbs, mushrooms, hot pepper relish and basil. Add ground beef and mix well to incorporate all ingredients together. Shape into four 3/4 inch thick patties and grill (or cook) until done. Serve on the buns with your favorite condiments.

Note: I like grilling some sliced portobello mushrooms and onions to serve with these burgers, either on the side or as a topping.

Zestfully yours,
