This is a great burger! The recipe as-is is fantastic! The second time I made it I switched out the peppers for bacon and green chile. Delicious! Lots of ways to change this up, but the original recipe is really good!
These were amazing! I'm not much for hamburgers and I hate cheeseburgers, but when I saw this recipe in the magazine I knew it had my husband's name all over it. Believe it or not, I loved these too! The provolone cheese was perfect, not overpowering at all. Mr. Picky didn't even mind the onions and peppers in it. I bet if you make this just once, you'll be hooked. And like me, you'll start thinking of other delicious things to "stuff" them with --- hmm, jalapenos? Shredded cabbage, carrots, or zucchinis? Thanks for adding one more thing to my arsenal in the War To Get Mr. Picky To Eat More Veggies. :~)
These burgers are delicious!
I grilled out this weekend and made this our main dish. The flavors of the fresh mushrooms, peppers, bacon and onions really set off this burger. I already use provolone cheese a lot. The Kaiser rolls also made a world of difference. I'm going to make a variation of this with some of the different spicier peppers from my garden.
delicious although I think I cut the mushrooms too small...next time I will keep the mushrooms ,onions and peppers larger so the don't cook down so much...great recipe
