Over the Top Burgers

Recipe by Manami

"Burgers with Caramelized Onions" and Gorgonzola has been written up as the best in the Bay Area by The San Francisco Chronicle. Recipe by Jesse Cool of Jesse's CoolEatz." The goodness starts with the quality of the meat, Montana Legend natural Angus Beef, but the fact that it oozes and drips with juicy caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, avocado & a combination of Gorgonzola cheese sends this over the top. "This is the time to indulge in luscious burgers." I tweaked it a bit as I was unable to get Montana Legend Angus beef so I bought brisket (first cut) to make the burgers. Also added sauteed mushrooms and made a horseradish-type mayonnaise.
