Ingredients

FOR THE CARAMELISED RED ONIONS:

TO SERVE:

Method

  1. Wash and clean mushrooms. Mince them very finely.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large frying pan. Add finely sliced shallots and crushed garlic.
  3. Add minced mushrooms. Fry gently for 2 mins.
  4. Add marsala wine and finely chopped parsley.
  5. Cook for 10-12 mins until all liquid has evaporated.
  6. Transfer mushrooms to a bowl. Mix in beaten eggs and breadcrumbs. You can use a bit more breadcrumbs if you feel the mix is too wet. Season to taste.
  7. Set aside in the fridge for 1 hour so the breadcrumbs have time to soak up any extra liquid. The burger mixture can be made up to a day ahead and kept in the fridge in an airtight container.
  8. CARAMELISED RED ONIONS:
  9. Make the caramelised onions just before you are ready to cook the burgers
  10. Heat olive oil and butter in a large frying pan. Add sliced onions, sugar and vinegar. Stir a little
  11. Leave to cook for 30-40 mins under gentle heat, stirring every now and then so the onions do not stick to the pan. When done, transfer to a serving bowl.
  12. COOK BURGERS:
  13. Remove mushroom mix from the fridge. Mould handfuls of the mince mixture into burger patties. You should have 6.
  14. Heat some olive oil in a large frying pan. Cook the burgers for 10 to 12 minutes until evenly cooked. Turn them once.
  15. Serve with buns, salad, cheese and the caramelised red onions.
