Topless Burgers


Time: 45 mins
Effort: Easy


Ingredients
1 lb ground lean beef, veal and pork
Freshly ground pepper, salt to taste
1 large onion, sliced lengthwise
1 tbsp olive oil
1 goat cheese log (large enough to make 4 thick slices)
1/2 cup Ketchup
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp tabasco sauce
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
4 large portobello mushrooms, washed, stems removed
1 tsp olive oil
2 large hamburger buns or kaiser rolls sliced into two, so you'll have 4 pieces.
Lettuce for garnish


Make 4 even patties from the ground meats, season with salt & pepper. Put aside. Mix ketchup, worcestershire sauce, tabasco and dijon. Put aside for later. Slice goat cheese into 4 equal rounds, place on a plate at room temperature. In a large skillet, add olive oil and onions, gently saute until they are evenly browned - approx. 10 minutes. Heat BBQ to high, grill burgers to desired doness. Meanwhile grill mushrooms on both sides. When meat is done, place a round of goat cheese on each one, close BBQ cover and grill until cheese is slightly melted. 


Place the rolls on a plate or serving platter. (You'll have two bottoms and two tops each acting as a bottom). Spread a little of the sauce, then add a hamburger patty with the cheese, add a bit of the onions, top with a portobello mushroom and a bit more sauce.
