🔪 Step-By-Step Instructions
You can use the stovetop or grill to make these easy mushroom Swiss burgers! If using the grill, make sure it gets preheated while you’re cooking your mushrooms.
- Make patties. If using ground beef and not pre-formed patties, take 1 pound of ground beef and split it into 4 even portions. This will yield approximately 4 ¼-pound burgers (*see tips & recipe notes). Then, flatten the patties until they are roughly 1 inch thick.
- Sauté mushrooms. Once your patties are made, add 2 tablespoons of butter to a skillet over medium heat. Once the butter is melted and bubbling, add 8 ounces of cleaned and sliced white mushrooms. Season the mushrooms with ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper, then sauté for 10 minutes, or until tender.
- Finish mushrooms. To your skillet of sautéed mushrooms, add 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and toss them together for about 1 minute. Then, remove them from heat. Cover your mushrooms with a sheet of aluminum foil to keep warm and set aside.
- Prep stovetop or grill. Heat your grill, cast-iron skillet, or frying pan to medium-high heat (closer to high heat than medium). If using the stovetop, use an oil with a high smoke point, like coconut oil, to coat your skillet or frying pan.
- Season burgers. Next, season the tops of each formed burger patty generously with 1 tablespoon of steak seasoning. Then place the patties onto the grill, or into your skillet or frying pan with the seasoned side down. Now season the opposite side of the burger patties with the steak seasoning.
- Cook Burgers. After seasoning, cook the burger patties without moving them until they’re cooked and have formed a caramelized surface. This should take 3 to 4 minutes for a burger that is 1 inch in thickness, and up to 6 minutes for a burger that is 1 ½ inches thick.
- Add cheese. Next, flip and sear the reverse side of the burger. If grilling, add 4 slices of Swiss cheese and close the cover for 5 to 6 minutes for a medium-rare burger. If using the stovetop, add 1 tablespoon of butter and arroser (or baste) the burger by spooning the melted butter over your burger patties. Top with 4 slices of Swiss cheese, and cover for 5 to 6 minutes for medium-rare burgers.
- Remove and rest. Once the burgers are cooked, remove them from the heat and cover them with a sheet of aluminum foil. Allow the burgers to rest for about 5 minutes before serving (we want the burgers to stay juicy, not drain all over our plates!).
- Assemble and serve. After resting, top each burger bun with a patty, sautéed mushrooms, and your favorite condiments and toppings.
Every great burger needs a side of tasty Cajun fries! Or, try serving my awesome mushroom Swiss burgers for dinner with a side of my air fryer French fries, onion rings, or whatever your favorite side is! Enjoy!

💭 Angela's Tips & Recipe Notes
- Make your burgers as big as you like them! 1 pound of ground beef makes 4 ¼-pound patties, 3 ⅓-pound patties, or 2 ½-pound patties.
- If your burgers are sticking, they’re not ready to flip! Don’t force them – wait another minute and try again. Once they’re ready to flip they will release from the pan.
- Want to make these burgers vegetarian? You can easily substitute 1 pound of ground beef alternative like Beyond Beef or Impossible Burger for the ground beef. Shape, season, and cook as instructed above. You can even substitute vegan Swiss and vegan butter for a delightful vegan-friendly option!
🥡 Storing & Reheating
Leftover burger patties will keep for up to 3 to 5 days in your refrigerator! Either transfer the cooled leftover burger patties to an airtight container or wrap well in a sheet of foil or plastic cling film.
If you have extra sautéed mushrooms, you can put them in a separate airtight container if desired.
Freezing burgers is a great way to extend the shelf life of your burger patties! I recommend not topping with cheese and then wrapping the fully cooled patties securely in plastic cling film.
Transfer the wrapped patties in a freezer storage bag and press out all the air before freezing for up to 4 months.
Reheating Mushroom Swiss Burgers
To reheat the burgers, I recommend using the oven, so they don’t get rubbery! Put the burgers in a baking dish and then cover with aluminum foil. You can also put leftover mushrooms in the dish to warm.
Then place the baking dish in a 350°F (175°C) oven for 8 to 10 minutes. If needed, top with Swiss cheese, let melt, and rest before serving.

I highly recommend wiping fresh mushrooms clean with a damp paper towel or kitchen towel instead of running under water. Mushrooms are like little sponges and will absorb excess water if they’re cleaned this way.
This will result in soggy sautéed mushrooms, instead of golden-brown and perfectly seared mushrooms. Unless they’re thickly coated with dirt, stick to wiping your mushrooms clean!
Arroser means “to baste” in French and is a culinary term for basting meat with butter or another fat. Basting our burger patties with butter is a fantastic way to add extra richness and moisture. Basically, it makes the burgers that much more delicious!
