1 tsp

CARAMELIZED MUSHROOMS AND ONIONS

12 oz
pkg sliced mushrooms, fresh
1/2 large
onion, sliced
1 Tbsp
butter
1/8 c
whiskey (i used evan williams bourbon)
2 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat grill over medium high heat on stove until very hot. I use a cast iron grill pan. NOTE: you can also grill outside over hot coals.
2
Place beef in large bowl.
3
Whisk together whiskey, worcestershire sauce, garlic paste, basil paste, and onion powder. Pour mixture over beef and mix to combine.
4
Divide into equal size patties, 6 to 8 depending on size you prefer.
5
Place patties on hot grill. NOTE: you may have to cook in batches if cooking on stovetop or if you prefer you can grill on outdoor grill over hot coals. Grill to desired doneness. Right before burgers have finished cooking, add slices of cheese to top, turn heat off and cover with a lid for a minute or until cheese has melted.
6
Serve on hot grilled buns/rolls and smother with caramelized mushrooms and onion. Add slices of fried bacon if desired.

NOTE: I lightly butter the rolls and grilled until light brown.
7
CARAMELIZED MUSHROOMS:
Melt butter over medium/high heat in appropriate size skillet. Add mushrooms and onions.
8
Whisk together whiskey, worcestershire sauce and garlic paste; pour over mushrooms. Cook until mushrooms and onions are tender and liquid has cooked down.
