I was going to make something difficult, can not remember what it was... But we had gone to the store to grab some ingredients and I said, "Hey babe! You know what sounds good? A Juicy burger with Swiss and mushrooms!" Zo replied, "Oh that sounds good!" So I tossed these together and whipped up some of my burger sauce and we went to town BBQing! Everything came out wonderful and it took me a 1/3 of the time it would have taken me to cook whatever it was I had in mind. If you love Mushrooms Swiss burgers make sure you fire up your grill for this recipe!

1/2-3/4 lb ground Angus beef
1/4 tsp Essence
fresh crack pepper (to taste)
kosher salt (to taste)
2 classic white hamburger buns

2 1/4 whole red onion slices
7-8 crimini mushrooms (sliced)
1 1/2 tsp sweet European butter
3 tbsp Marsala cooking wine
2 slices aged Swiss cheese

Frank's Burger Sauce
1 tbsp Ketchup
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp Italian volcano lemon juice
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/8 tsp De arbol chili powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Form two patties out of the ground beef and sprinkle with essence crack pepper and kosher salt. Sit aside.

In a medium skillet melt butter over medium heat. Once melted lay onion slices down into butter and add mushrooms around onion slices. Pour 1 1/2 tbsp Marsala over each onion slice and cook for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes flip onion slices with a spatula and stir around mushrooms, cook and additional 5 minutes and remove from heat.

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl using a small whisk.

Preheat grill to medium high.

Place burgers on heat grill and cook for 4-5 minutes. Flip burgers and cook for another 4-5 minutes or until desired doneness. (add buns the last 2-3 minutes to toast.)

Remove burgers from gill and lay Swiss slices onto patties and let melt for 2-3 minutes. While cheese is melting and 1 tsp of the sauce to the bottom bun and spread evenly. Add patties to buns and then top with mushrooms and onion. Add a little more sauce or mustard to the top bun if so desired. Serve warm with chips, fries and a cold brew.
