Ingredients

cost per recipe: $7.08

  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup Italian-seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 dash ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 ounces sliced mushrooms (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

  • Tips

    • Make Ahead Freezer Meal: Assemble the burgers as shown and stack the uncooked burgers in a gallon-size resealable freezer bag, layering parchment paper between burgers.  Stir the mushrooms and remaining soup in a quart-size resealable freezer bag.  Seal bags (removing all air) and freeze.  Thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then follow recipe as written but skip Step 3 and add the mushroom mixture in step 4.
  • Step 1

    Thoroughly mix 1/4 cup soup, beef, bread crumbs, onion and egg in a large bowl. Season with the black pepper.  Shape the beef mixture firmly into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) burgers.

  • Step 2

    Heat a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the burgers and cook until well browned on both sides. Remove the burgers from the skillet.

  • Step 3

    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.

  • Step 4

    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 cooked through.  Spoon mushroom mixture over burgers before serving.

  • I set out to find a childhood favorite and I believe this is it!

    My mother made these for us five kids when she was really stretching the food budget. Hers were half as big and they held together well— people might try that. Also, when using bread crumbs in a formed meat recipe, it helps to give the mixture time to ‘bind’ before shaping.

  • Delicious!!

    My husband and I both fell in love with these! Easy to whip up, and goes really good with mashed potatoes!

    I made this for the first time and well my husband loved it very much! I liked it a lot also, but was not happy with how the burgers cooked up...difficult to keep together! One broke in two, and it was a challenge keeping the other 3 from not, but I did! I saw many other reviews having the same problem! What I will try next time is using less of the soup that is mixed into the ground beef...about one half of the 1/4 cup...and probably more bread crumbs as others have suggested! This may work. I used sliced mushroom that are in a jar...and instead of the water I mixed in the juice from the mushrooms and a little bit of water used to rinse the soup can. Th gravy was a tad too thick and this helped to thin it out!

  • This recipe is a keeper
