Six Burgers You Need to Try This National Burger Month


With warm weather and sunny days on the horizon, we’re busting out the sunglasses and grilling gear! May is National Burger Month and this year we’re celebrating by building better burgers. Elevate your plain patty with a dose of essential nutrients and umami flavor by blending your meat with mushrooms: add a little zest with some white button or cremini, or take your patty to the next level with a bold portabella or shiitake.

Building a Blended Burger is simple:

  1. Chop up your favorite mushroom variety to match the consistency of the ground meat.
  2. Blend the chopped mushrooms with the ground meat (we recommend a 30/70 blend of mushrooms/meat for burgers).
  3. Cook your mushroom-meat blend to complete the burger recipe.

Optional: Prior to chopping, roast mushrooms for 10-15 minutes to enhance flavor. Cool, then chop and blend.
