Bacon Mushroom Onion and Swiss Grilled Burger

~ juicy ~ delicious ~

A freshly mixed homemade grilled burger with these toppings was a craving of mine last week. It was a simple fix and super juicy! I had mixed these burgers the week before and frozen them so they were not mixedfreshthesameday but they were a quick fix for a busy week night supper.

2 lbs. 90% lean ground beef
1 large egg
seasonings of your choice
Salt and Pepper to taste
Prepared Bacon Slices
Swiss Cheese
Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce

I had used things like garlic and herb and other seasonings that give good strong flavor. Mix just until the egg is not visible anymore. Don't overwork the mixture. Form into burgers and freeze or refrigerate if using the same day. They should have ample time in the fridge. Grill over medium high heat until still pink in the middle then remove from the grill and cover and let rest for about five minutes. 

Have the onions and mushrooms ready to saute and while the burgers rest these can be made in a bit of olive oil and butter. Pile on top of the burgers and top with Swiss Cheese. Serve on a bun with BBQ sauce.

~Be Blessed!~


  1. Just a little question. What is the reason to not over mix the hamburger mixture??
    I enjoy your blog a lot. I don't know you but I used to know your in-laws. =)

    1. They get tough and dry if overmixed. I also read somewhere that salt should be added only right before grilling because the salt melts the fat and dries them out. Made sense to me because I usually add it but didn't this time. Thanks for stopping by. It's always nice to hear when someone enjoys it :) I'll have to play the 'mennonite game' with mom-in-law to see if I know you :)

  2. Wow! That burger is screaming my name!

  3. I'm making that this weekend! :) thanks!

  4. That burger looks delicious! Thanks for sharing your recipe. I am so excited to try it when my new Swiss Grill arrives.
