Basic gets a boost when you pair burgers with crisp, smoky bacon, earthy mushrooms and melty Swiss cheese. The herbed mayonnaise adds instant sophistication, and toasting the buns gives an extra layer of texture. Sweet potato fries or chips go great with this burger.

  • Cut each strip of bacon in half and cook in a skillet over medium heat until crisp.

  • Remove and drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon bacon drippings from the pan.

  • Add mushroom slices and soy sauce to the pan.

  • Over medium heat, saute mushrooms until browned and soft, about 5 to 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • To prepare burgers, mix ground beef, garlic granules, and salt and pepper together in a bowl. Form into patties. Place on prepared grill and grill 3 to 5 minutes per each side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 150 degrees F (65 degrees C).

  • During last 2 minutes of cooking, top with cheese and cover to melt cheese.

  • Meanwhile, heat oven to 400 degrees, arrange hamburger buns on a foil-lined cookie sheet and lightly toast hamburger buns in the oven on each side.

  • When toasted, remove buns to serving plates and spread some of the herbed mayonnaise on each bun.

  • To serve, put cheese-topped patties on each bun, add desired hamburger trimmings, finish with the top bun and enjoy.

Tip:

Herbes de Provence is a French-style blend of rosemary, thyme, oregano, savory and other herbs. You can mix it up by using dried Italian herbs or just go with your fave, whether that's dried basil, chives or parsley.

Who doesn t love bacon and cheese on a burger? While I was excited to try this recipe both my husband and I weren t huge fans. Not real sure why other than we didn t like the floral taste of the herbs de Provence in the mayo. Perhaps mixed a few hours or even a day ahead would have helped the flavors meld better and softened them some. I cooked the burgers in a Panasonic Countertop Induction Oven on medium grill for 5 minutes to perfection. I also spread softened butter on the buns and sprinkled with garlic powder before grilling in the CIO as well. I forgot to add the soy sauce to the mushrooms and didn t miss it one bit. The Ball Park buns were great and this was my first time using them. A lot of buns I ve tried tend to be a little on the sweet side and sometimes a little dry. Ball Park buns are fresh and great tasting. Read More

I had never used Herbs de Provence in a burger or soy sauce with my mushrooms and I loved it! I used Portabella Mushrooms and didn't change anything else. Great burger and delicious buns. Read More

My husband was seriously looking forward to this recipe and it didn't disappoint! Instead of putting the buns in the oven I simply brushed them with a bit of butter and toasted them on the grill. I made the mayo sauce several hours in advance to let the flavors meld. He cannot wait to have this again! Read More

Everyone enjoyed the burgers. I buttered and toasted the buns on the grill which added a nice crunch. The Herbs de Provence sauce added a delicious change to our usual hamburger sauces. Read More

Yum! We enjoyed these burgers a lot. I made the mayo several hours in advance giving flavors time to develop. I couldn't grill my burgers so pan fried them. Tasty! Read More

I read the reviews and made the herbed mayo ahead of time and refrigerated it for four hours. It just really didn't work for me even though I thought I would enjoy it. The Burger with Swiss Bacon and Mushrooms was great. I strongly suggest that if you do make this that you serve the herbed mayo on the side. Read More
