Swiss, Onions and Mushrooms Burger-Gluten Free Suggestions

After two nights of Christmas leftovers, it became apparent, that even though we loved our Christmas meal, we were getting sick of leftovers. So I asked my husband: “What would you like me to make for dinner tomorrow?” He couldn’t think of anything. Well, we have been having poultry for a few days and I remembered that I had some ground beef in the freezer. I mentioned it to him asking “Why not a burger night?” He seemed very happy. Then he remembered we had Swiss Cheese. I added why not saute some onions and mushrooms.

Top that off with some Homemade Hamburger Buns (I made plain burger this time *Gluten Sensitivity-see note) and the menu came to be.


Ingredients For Burger:

2 1/2 lbs ground beef

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of pepper

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon of onion powder


Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms:

1 large cooking onion, sliced

1 cup of mushrooms, sliced

cooking oil (canola  or olive)


Other Ingredients:

Swiss Cheese


  1. Combine ground beef and seasoning until well combined. Then make the meat into balls and flatten into burgers.
  2. In a large saute pan, pour about 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and add your sliced onions. Sautée until the onions start browning, on medium heat.
  3. Add mushrooms to the onions and continue sauteing until the mushrooms and onions turn golden brown.
  4. Heat another frying pan on medium high heat.
  5. Place burgers on pan (Do not crowd pan) and cook for about 2 minutes (medium rare) (longer if you want a more well done burger) and then flip burger over placing Swiss Cheese on top.
  6. Allow burgers to rest before eating (lets the juice redistribute)

Enjoy your burgers! I served our with Oven Cajun Fries!

*As in the famous In and Out Burger secret menu, try this burger “Protein Style”

A burger wrapped in lettuce, instead of a bun. You will have a nice crunch!
