A note about serious food allergies

Burgers nowadays can be elaborate layers of toppings: everything from avocado to zucchini, and all things in between. But we shouldn’t ignore all the classic toppings in the wave of the new. Meaty mushrooms, those little bursts of umami flavor, and funky Swiss has been the tops of burger toppings for years, and they work their wonders here. And with a schmear of garlic aioli on the bun? Completely classic.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. ground beef, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground beef, forming four burgers and stacking two to serve.

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 4 and 5, cooking until patties reach minimum internal temperature, 5-6 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Bake the Fries

    Cut potatoes into 1/4" thick fries. Pat dry.

    Place fries on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil and garlic pepper.

    Spread into a single layer and bake in hot oven until lightly browned, 25-30 minutes, tossing fries once halfway through.

    Carefully remove from oven. Season baked fries with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

    While potatoes bake, prepare ingredients and toast buns.

  2. 2

    Prepare Mushrooms and Toast Buns

    Cut mushrooms into 1/4" slices.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Place buns in hot, dry pan, cut side down. Toast until golden brown, 30-60 seconds.

    Remove from burner and remove buns to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  3. 3

    Cook the Mushrooms

    Return pan used to toast buns to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add mushrooms, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until browned, 4-6 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    While mushrooms cook, form and start cooking patties.

  4. 4

    Start the Patties

    Form ground beef into two equally-sized patties, about 1/2" thick. Season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add patties to hot, dry pan. Cook until lightly charred, 4-6 minutes on one side.

  5. 5

    Finish Patties and Finish Dish

    Flip patties, and top evenly with mushrooms and cheese.

    Cover, and cook until cheese is melted and patties reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 3-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping bottom bun with garlic aioli, patty, and top bun. Bon appétit!
