    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 6 hamburger buns, split


  • Shape beef into six patties. In a large skillet, cook patties over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Saute mushrooms in drippings until tender.
  • Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine soup and water. Cover and microwave on high for 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 minutes or until heated through.
  • Return patties to the skillet. Stir in soup mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3 minutes.
  • Top each patty with a slice of cheese. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand until cheese is melted. Serve on buns topped with mushrooms.

    Delicious! My husband loved it. We found it to be a little drippy so I serve it open-face on the bun.

    That sounds like a great idea for those of us who are on a low sodium diet! I already know I can get mushrooms canned without salt, but low sodium mushroom soup is still too high in sodim for me.
