Smothered Burgers

I made these Sunday and I am enjoying them for other meals as well. I hope to take some of them to work with me this week too. Of course Mike didn’t eat the veggies but that is too be expected. 😛

I first grilled hamburgers with just salt and pepper and while they were on the grill I made the topping.

Doesn’t this look good? My house smelled wonderful while this was cooking. I need smellavision for this. 🙂

You will need to make a seasoning mix that I keep on hand at all times. It is wonderful for any meat or vegetables that you may want to stirfry.

Seasoning Mix

  • 1 teaspoon splenda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder,
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Mix in a container and seal tightly. Keep in dry place. Use on vegetables or just about any meat.

Smothered Burgers

  • 2 pounds ground beef- grilled into 6 burgers
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 green pepper, sliced
  • 1 orange pepper, sliced
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 8 ounces Portobello mushrooms
  • 3 cups mozzarella cheese
  • seasoning mix to taste.
  • olive oil

Add a little bit of olive oil to a pan and heat. Add onions and cook for a bit just until you see them wilt a bit. Then add the peppers. Cook until almost done and then add the sliced mushrooms. Cook for another 5 minutes. Add seasoning mix to taste and stir. Add mozzarella cheese and replace lid. Set pan aside to allow cheese to melt.

Place burgers on a plate and then top with vegetables and cheese mixture. Serves 6.

  1. That looks *amazing*. Jer was just talking the other day about how we really don’t need buns. I think he would love this! Thanks:). And your spice mixture sounds good too.
