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


  1. Shape beef into six 1/2-in.-thick patties. In a large nonstick skillet, cook burgers over medium heat until a thermometer reads 160°, 5-7 minutes on each side. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. Add mushrooms to drippings in pan; cook and stir until tender, 4-6 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, combine soup and water. Cover and microwave on high until heated through, 2-3 minutes.
  3. Return patties to the skillet. Add 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.

Mushroom Swiss Burger Tips

Can you make these mushroom Swiss burgers without cream of mushroom soup?

Sure! If you don't have cream of mushroom soup on hand for this mushroom Swiss burger recipe, you can eliminate that step and just use the cooked mushrooms. Otherwise, you can make your own delicious homemade cream of mushroom soup!

Can you make mushroom Swiss burgers on the grill?

Yes! Make the mushroom soup mixture in a pan over stovetop and cook as directed. Grill burgers to your desired doneness and top with cheese. (Here's how to grill burgers like a pro.) Remove burgers from the grill and cover until cheese is melted. Serve burgers on buns with mushroom soup mixture.

What seasonings can you add to the burger patties?

Add any of your favorite herbs and seasonings to the ground beef before forming into patties. Use hamburger or steak seasonings, salt and pepper, garlic and onion powder, or use this hamburger recipe for more flavors!

What other kinds of cheeses can you use instead of Swiss?

Feel free to substitute your favorite cheese for Swiss. Consider picking a cheese that will melt really nicely such as American, cheddar, Monterey Jack, pepper jack, or provolone. For more tangy cheese options, try using Gouda, blue, Brie, or goat cheese.
