Sourdough Cheeseburgers for 2

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

I got this recipe out of one of those little coupon booklets that come with some of the recipe magazines. Not sure which one, but probably TOH or QC. I added the mushroom, simply because we love them. As empty nesters, I am always on the lookout for recipes that are already geared toward two servings. This recipe was one of those.

DELICIOUS! Loved the sauce for these burgers. I used Recipe #78816 for our sourdough bread. This is a keeper! Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

Made this for dinner last night, with leftover Somersize whole wheat sourdough bread. It was delish. Didn't think I would like relish on it, but I could hardly taste it with the mayo and ketchup. I will make this again. Thanks for posting!

WOW is right. This was absolutely wonderful. The flavor of the sauted onions and mushrooms along with the sourdough bread is great. I used Cobblestone Mill San Francisco sourdough. I could only eat half of mine because it is very filling. Another great one JQ.
