1cupfinely chopped white mushroomsor portabella
4ounces90 percent-lean ground beefor extra lean ground turkey
1teaspoonsalt-free seasoning blend
2hard rollsor whole wheat
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for about 3 minutes or until soft. Drain off any water, transfer the mushrooms to a large bowl, and set them aside.
Heat the oil in the same skillet over medium heat, add the onions, and sauté until translucent, about 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the onions are caramelized, about 15 minutes.
While the onions cook, add the beef, seasoning, and salt to the bowl with the mushrooms. Mix thoroughly and divide the mixture into two burgers.
Transfer the caramelized onions to a small bowl and set aside.
Increase the heat to medium-high and place the same skillet back on the heat. Place the burgers in the skillet and cook them for 7 to 10 minutes, turning once. (You can also grill the burgers, 4-6 minutes per side)
Serve the burgers topped with the onions on the hard rolls. Feel free to add other vegetable toppings, such as sliced tomato, leaf lettuce or spinach.
