How often do you ask the question: What can I do with this package of ground beef (or turkey)? Instead of defaulting to boring burgers, try this Mushroom-Smothered Beef Burgers recipe. Brown the burgers and simmer in a rich and creamy mushroom gravy made with condensed mushroom soup, fresh mushrooms and Worcestershire. It's a burger that feels less like fast food and more like home cooking, especially if you serve it over hot cooked mashed potatoes or noodles. You can even make a few batches of Mushroom-Smothered Beef Burgers and freeze them for later- see the tip below for how.
Season the beef with salt and pepper. Thoroughly mix the beef, 1/4 cup soup, bread crumbs, onion and egg in a large bowl. Shape the beef mixture firmly into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) burgers.
Heat a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the burgers and cook until well browned on both sides (to prevent sticking- make sure the skillet is hot before adding the burgers). Remove the burgers from the skillet.
Reduce the heat to medium and heat the oil in the skillet. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
Stir the remaining soup, Worcestershire and water in the skillet and heat to a boil. Return the burgers to the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the burgers are done. Serve the burgers with the mushroom gravy.
