These went over nicely with my family. After the first bite, my daughter exclaimed that it was good! The burgers were very moist. My husband didn't even seem to notice the mushrooms, so he must have enjoyed them (despite not liking mushrooms). I just used a soft white bun (regular). Thanks NurseDi. Roxygirl
