Weight Watchers Mushroom Hamburgers – Dairy Free
I originally found this recipe on food.com. We have made some alterations to suit our tastes (and my 2 year old’s aversion to onions).
4 tsp. olive oil
1 red or yellow pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped (I used onion powder because my 2 y.o. won’t eat onion)
4 tbsp. carrots, minced
4 cups mushrooms, finely chopped
1.5 lbs. extra lean ground beef
2 tbsp. steak sauce (next time I will add a bit more to give them more flavor)
salt and pepper to taste
-Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet and saute the peppers, onion, carrots and garlic until the onion is translucent, 8 to 10 minutes.
-Add mushrooms and saute until mushrooms are brown and the liquid has evaporated, about 8 minutes.
(Since I didn’t use the onions, I sauteed everything all together for about 8 minutes, skipping a step)
-Cool to room temperature
-Spray broiler rack with nonstick cooking spray and preheat broiler.
-Combine mushroom mixture, beef, steak sauce and salt and pepper.
-Form into 8 burgers
-Broil burgers 3 to 4 inches from heat for 5 to 7 minutes on each side.
