Grilling season is my favorite! I like to stretch it out as long as possible. I probably start before anyone else and end well after everyone else. I just have a hard time letting go. What’s better than a juicy grilled hamburger? Well, top it with buttery sautéed mushrooms, sweet caramelized onions and gooey melty Swiss cheese and I’d say you can’t get much better. If you are a fan of mushrooms, this combo will speak to you. If you aren’t a fan, well, then… I’m sorry. You are totally missing out! No matter what I do I just simply cannot get my husband to fall in love with mushrooms. As much as I want him to. I suppose that just means more for me right?
There’s nothing original about this hamburger. It’s your typical ‘shroom & Swiss. But is it? Have you ever caramelized onions? It’s different than just sautéing them. Caramelizing them takes time and patience for the sweetness buried inside to transform the onion into a beautiful golden mixture of pure wonderfulness. For a fabulous step-by-step tutorial on how to caramelize onions, check out Simply Recipes! Walked me right through with the perfect end result.
