"Wow! After trying this, the two men at the table actually said they would prefer a mushroom burger over a meat burger. I did add a little bit of salt to the topping (I think about 1/4 t). I also soaked, and baked the mushrooms in a beef broth. I think the broth gave the mushrooms the flavor they needed. I will indeed be making these on the grill this summer!"
