• ¼ lb mushrooms, quartered
  • 4 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh sage, chopped finely
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • Freshly milled black pepper
  • Lettuce, red onion, tomato, fried egg, and/or avocado, for serving (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Meanwhile, chop the mushrooms into quarters. Place them on a baking sheet and roast for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool slightly and set aside.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the garlic and sage and cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  3. Combine the roasted mushrooms with the garlic/sage mix in a food processor. Pulse the mushrooms into small pieces, then add the ground beef and black pepper. Pulse until well combined.
  4. Form the mixture into four burgers. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat and add the burgers, frying 5 minutes per side. You may need to work in batches.
  5. Serve your burger over a bed of lettuce with sliced red onions and/or tomato slices. You can also add a fried egg or avocado. Dig in and enjoy!
