I am (a self-declared) queen of burgers. It's my favorite non-Korean food, probably because it's the one non-Korean food my mom made, and it's definitely the meal I make most come summertime because hello, grill and burger are BFF. My ultimate favorite is probably my stacked burger because it's so decadent and humongous and just gorgeous to look at but, the brioche bun is a bit of a pain to make (mostly because waiting for the dough to rise isn't a fun activity for an impatient hungry person). So, on the opposite end of the spectrum, I like to grab storebought rye bread and throw together swiss patty melts, which are technically a sandwich but not a burger (a burger is a sandwich, but a sandwich is not a burger) but they've got the beef patty and that's the most important part. They're quite quick, really delicious but simple, and because I'm me, I still manage to incorporate a grill into the mix.
1½ lbs. ground beef
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon + 2 tablespoons butter
4 oz. baby bella mushrooms, sliced
½ onion, sliced
8 slices rye bread
4 slices swiss cheese
And of course, it's great, but the part of me that wishes I were skinny insists on having this with a big salad and maybe some roasted vegetables to adhere to the rules of the food pyramid.
