I got this recipe from my son-in-law and I tweaked it to make it healthier. The burgers are so quick to whip up on the grill on busy nights. —Dolores Block, Frankenmuth, Michigan

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 3 Italian turkey sausage links (4 ounces each), casings removed
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 large portobello mushrooms, stems removed
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 6 tablespoons crumbled feta or blue cheese
  • 6 whole wheat hamburger buns or sourdough rolls, split
  • 10 fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced


  1. Combine first 4 ingredients; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into six 1/2-in.-thick patties. Mix vinegar and oil; brush over mushrooms.
  2. Place burgers, mushrooms and onion on an oiled grill rack over medium heat. Grill covered until a thermometer inserted in burgers reads 160° and mushrooms and onion are tender, 4-6 minutes per side.
  3. Fill mushroom caps with cheese; grill, covered, until cheese is melted, 1-2 minutes. Grill buns, cut side down, until toasted, 30-60 seconds. Serve burgers on buns; top with mushrooms, basil and onion.
