Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 25 mins
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 4 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 Boca burgers or any meatless or traditional burger
  • 1 large yellow onion halved from top to bottom and thinly sliced
  • 8 oz. sliced mushrooms
  • 4 whole wheat English muffins or buns (use wheat/gluten-free, if needed)
  • 4 slices Swiss, provolone, Cheddar, or Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup ketchup, mustard, or barbecue sauce (use wheat/gluten-free, if needed), for serving

Instructions
 

  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tsp. oil over medium heat. Add the burgers and cook them, flipping them every couple of minutes, until they are browned and heated through, about 8 minutes total. (For meat burgers cook them for about 5 minutes per side until they are no longer pink in the middle.)
  • While the burgers are cooking, heat the remaining oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the onions and mushrooms, and cook them, stirring occasionally, until they are softened, and onions are slightly browned, 5-8 minutes.
  • Toast the buns, if desired. When the burgers are cooked through, top them with the cheese and cover the pan for a minute until the cheese melts. Put the burgers on the buns, dress them with ketchup, mustard, or barbecue sauce, and top them with a scoop of the onion-mushroom mixture.

Notes

Do Ahead or Delegate: Slice and sauté the onions and the mushrooms.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Use Pepper Jack cheese, and sauté 1 tsp. minced garlic with the mushrooms and onions.  Season the mushrooms and onions with ½ tsp. fresh thyme or ¼ tsp. dried thyme while they are cooking.
Tip: Don't discount the humble white mushroom!  Not only do white mushrooms rival the antioxidant qualities of wild mushrooms like shiitakes, but they are more budget-friendly.  So toss some of this healthy, filling fungi into your salads, stir-fries and pastas.
