Beef Burgers with Porcini

The mellow taste of dried porcini mushrooms makes a noticeable difference in this (not your regular) burger. What's better is that you can whip these up in no time for a quick lunch fix or light dinner.


  • 500g x Beef Mince

  • 20g x Dried Porcini Mushrooms, ground to a powder

  • 1/2 medium Onion, diced

  • 1 x tbsp Oil

  • 1 x sprig Thyme

  • 150g x Parmesan Cheese, grated finely

  • 1 x Egg, lightly beaten

  • 100g x fine Breadcrumbs

  • 1 x tsp Salt


  • 1.

    In a frying pan heat oil and and onions and thyme. Cook gently until slightly caramelised. Allow to cool.

  • 2.

    Combine beef mince, mushroom powder, parmesan, breadcrumbs and egg.

  • 3.

    Add cooked onions mixture and salt

  • 4.

    Mix thoroughly (with hands is best) and form into 6 patties.

  • 5.

    Fry or grill patties as you like and serve in a burger bun with egg, cheese, greens and sauce.


Build your burger with your favourite fillings but I think the simple patty on some cheese with some baby spinach in a crusty bun highlights the beefy mushroom flavour.
