Wow ~ what a delicious burger! I love mushrooms so this is right up my alley. I served DH's in a burger roll instead of the portabella but I served mine as posted. The only thing I changed was to swap the sherry for some white wine ~ otherwise I made as posted and loved the smoked gouda flavor. Thanks for posting! Made for Pick~A~Chef, Spring 2008.
Made for "My 3 Chefs 2007" Great burger!! The smoked gouda is a MUST! I had to seriously restrain myself from adding some garlic to either the meat or mushroom mix while cooking, but I didn't as I wanted to taste the recipe exactly as written. I think next time I will try the garlic, but only because I think everything tastes better with it! We opted for ground turkey (we always do), but I think the beef would have added even more flavor, so I might actually try that next time, too. Neither DH nor myself could taste add'l flavor from the sherry, so next time I'll opt to fry the mushrooms without it and see how that goes. The only other change was to fry the mushrooms over high heat to get them nice and browned. Oh...and we didn't shred the gouda, but rather sliced it thinly - we should have grated it, though! It didn't melt very well (live and learn), but we didn't seem to notice it as the burgers were so delicious! This was very easy to make and tasted delicious! Definitely one to repeat!
