How to Make Cheesy Mushroom Burgers

  1. Place the mushroom caps on a plate between paper towels. Cover with another plate placed upside down. Microwave for 3 minutes. You may need to do it in 2 batches.
  2. Add the mozzarella, cheddar, bacon, parsley, and mayonnaise to a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Mix until even.
  3. Add about 2 tablespoons of mayo mixture between 2 mushroom caps and wrap in plastic foil. Do the same for the remaining salad and mushroom caps. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Add the flour, whisked eggs, and breadcrumbs each to a small bowl. Coat each mushroom sandwich with flour, whisked egg and then, breadcrumbs.
  5. Fill a deep frying pan 1/3 or 1/2 with vegetable oil and heat it over medium-high heat. Fry the mushroom sandwiches on both sides for 4 minutes. You may need to do it in 2 batches.
  6. Horizontally cut a burger bun in half. Spread about 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise on the lower half, add some baby spinach, 1 fried mushroom sandwich, then top with the bun’s upper half. Skewer the burger if you want. Do the same for the remaining ingredients.
