Recipe by Lori Mama
My husband just loves mushrooms, so this was much enjoyed by him. I flatten the patties out between 2 pieces of waxed paper with a plate, so they are thin, since meat usually shrinks a bit when grilling. Note: The dressing I used was #176110 "Chef Salad" Dressing.

This is a "manly burger", delicious. Great combination of ingredients. Made as written with one exception, I used Mayo in place of the dressing. Thanks for posting. Made for Photo Tag Early Fall 2011.
