Mustard Glazed Hamburger
2 pounds ground beef (85-percent lean)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
6 slices Swiss cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces chopped baby bella or cremini mushrooms
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 yeasty buns
Grill the burgers until desired doneness, 4 to 5 minutes
per side for medium rare, brushing the burgers
with the glaze about halfway through. A minute before
removing the burgers from the grill, top with the cheese.
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high
heat. Cook the mushrooms until beginning to soften,
about 5 minutes.
Add the thyme and garlic and cook until the mushrooms
are soft, about 3 minutes more. Season with salt and
pepper. Toast the buns and serve the burgers with the mushroom
topping. Yum Yum!
