Mushroom Swiss Burger

And did we mention this is a low carb burger? We swapped the burger bun for lettuce and instantly reduced the carbs! No need to waste those precious carbs on a bun…unless it’s like your grandma’s secret homemade recipe and she only makes it once per year. Then we’d probably say go ahead and splurge. That’s my point of view anyway. Just make sure it doesn’t become an every day occurrence!

If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, alternately you can cook the burgers on a grill. This will require you to use 2 pieces of cooking equipment but you have to do what works with your amenities.

How to Sauté mushrooms 

First, melt butter and oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. After the butter is melted,
add the mushrooms, salt, and black pepper. Finally cook the mushrooms until they are browned, about 12
minutes, stirring occasionally.

How to Make Lettuce Wrapped Mushroom Swiss Burgers

First you need to shape the meat into 4 patties. Next, preheat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high to high heat. After it is hot, add the patties and turn the heat down to medium to medium-high. Then, cook the burgers for 4 minutes on each side, flipping once. After the burgers are cooked, place 1 slice of cheese on each burger. Next, turn off the heat, drape a piece of foil on top of the burgers, and let the cheese melt. Finally serve each burger on a bed of 2 lettuce leaves and top with mushrooms.

What to do with leftover Mushroom Swiss Burgers?

Meal Prep! We often cook extra burgers and mushrooms and store them in glass containers to be eaten later in the week for lunch. It’s so easy to just cook up a few extra mushroom Swiss burgers to save yourself extra time during the week. More time for Netflix or the gym, am I right?
