Blue Cheese Mushroom Blended Burger
Meaty crimini mushrooms are finely chopped in a food processor, quickly sauteed to release all the flavours, and then combined with lean ground beef to make a BIG burger that doesn’t skimp on flavour! The addition of blue cheese takes this umami burger to the top!
