Amazing burger! I used deli American cheese and substituted for turkey bacon instead.

MY REVIEW

I'm going to give it a 4 rating because looking at the ingredients I can tell it tastes awesome, BUT 797 calories, 55 g fat (22 g saturated fat), 229 mg cholesterol, 1,653 mg sodium????? Holy crap, I can nearly hear my left ventricle slamming shut just THINKING about those numbers.

Wow, these were so good. I used portabello mushrooms and they were so moist and delicious. They were huge, I cut them in 1/2 and they were still a lot to eat.

This is the best new burger recipe we have tried in a long time. I'm not a big fan of mushrooms so we left those out. Great recipe!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2012

While I was making these, I kept thinking, the end result had better be worth it because they are rather time consuming and messy. Just bit into one and yes it was well worth it. They taste amazing. I used sliced baby bella mushrooms because they are meatier and I didn't feel like lighting the grill so I broiled mine on high for 5 minutes each side.
