Double mushroom cheese burgers

Preparation time : 2 mins Servings : 2
  • 4 big mushrooms
  • 5 ml oil
  • 15 ml barbecue sauce
  • salt and milled black pepper
  • 2 beef or chicken burgers, cooked
  • 2 cheese slices (optional)
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • a few lettuce leaves
  • 30 ml mayonnaise

Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Lightly brush the mushrooms with oil, barbecue sauce and season with salt and pepper.

Arrange the mushrooms in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes and baste with the barbecue sauce.

Turn the mushrooms over and baste again.

Bake for 5-7 more minutes, or until the mushrooms are cooked. Use the mushrooms as ‘buns’ and fill with a burger, slice of cheese (optional), red onion slices, tomato slices, lettuce and mayonnaise.

Serve at once.
