The Ultimate Burger Beauty

I happened to just come into making this burger by putting things together and seeing what goes best with certain ingredients and that is how The Ultimate Burger Beauty came about. The Ultimate Burger Beauty is a Wonderful way to enjoy a Hearty Burger and enjoy a glass of your favorite Sutter Home Wine.I would also suggest with your Ultimate Burger Beauty you serve a Bontiful Fresh Garden Salad.


4 large portabello mushrooms
one medium plastic bag
1/2 cup Italian dressing, (thick type)
1 tsp. liquid smoke
1/2 cup Pinot Grigio
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. tarragon
1 lb. lean ground beef
2 eggs
clear plastic gloves
4 onion hamburger buns
4 slices sharp cheddar cheese
1 large red onion sliced
Your favorite hamburger condiments - Ketcup, Dijon Mustard.


Place the 4 portabello mushrooms in a plastic bag and add the Italian dressing and 1/4 tespoon of the liquid smoke seasoning. Shake the bag enough to evenly coat the mushrooms. Set aside and start to make the hamubrgers. In a small mixing bowl, combine the Pinot Grigio, garlic powder, pepper and tarragon. In another bowl, place the hamburger and make a small crater in the center of the hamburger. Crack the eggs into the hamburger. Pour the liquid mixture into the meat. With your hands, knead the meat and the liquid mixture until completely combined. (Use plastic clear gloves). Place the mushrooms and the meat into the refrigerator and allow to marinate for about an hour. Prepare four patties from the meat. Place the hamburgers and the mushrooms on the grill and cook until the hamburgers are done to your liking and the mushrooms are tender. As the hamburgers and mushrooms are finishing on the grill, place the buns on the grill to toast them. Place the cheese on the hamburgers when they are just about done and allow the cheese to melt. Remove from the grill and put hamburger, onion and your condiments onto the toasted bun.


I would suggest you use vegetable oil for brushing on to the grill racks preventing food from sticking.
