Bacon Mushroom Burger

My husband absolutely *hates* mushrooms. I, on the other hand, love them! So, I was obviously eating by myself on this night. I got this recipe from Nom Nom Paleo, and you can get it HERE. It’s good. You want it.

Starting out with extra lean ground beef and minced bacon, I also minced some criminy mushrooms. I do believe I minced them just a tad too much, but I don’t mind. I cooked them until the moisture was gone, and added it to the meats.

Taking a portobello mushroom, I took the stem off and removed the gills, which I like to call fins. I tossed that in the oven while I did the other bits, letting it bake.

After I mixed the meats and mushrooms, I formed a few patties. I’m already looking forward to eating this!

When the portobello was done, I took it out and blotted off the extra moisture. While it cooled, I threw the patties on the skillet.

I don’t know if this looks delicious to you, but it does to me! Of course, I know what it tastes like, so I have an edge.

Since it had raw bacon in it, I was sure to cook it all the way through, something I don’t normally do with my burgers.

Here’s the stack: I started with the portobello and put my homemade mayonnaise on next. I added some red leaf lettuce, the burger, and avocado slices. It’s already a messy, difficult to eat food, so I put the tomato and pickles on the side.

Here’s another variation: I added gorgonzola and a couple of extra strips of bacon. Both versions were fantastic! Just messy. I mean, you should have a cloth napkin handy, because you’re going to need it!

This is a great burger. I ate way more veggies than meat, and it was so dang tasty! This one goes on the “make it again” list.

It all started with my friend, Christine. She called me a Viking. It's because I like endurance sports as well as lifting heavy things. Plus, my heritage includes Norwegians... It struck a chord somewhere deep down. I suddenly liked the idea of not having to be a small, slender person. I could be strong and thick. I could have mass. I don't want to be overweight or obese, mind you. I just don't like trying to be a waif when that is very likely unattainable to me. I have muscle (under this fat). I like being strong. So this is my journey of becoming more fit and liking the fact that I will never, NEVER weigh 120 pounds.
