  • Pin It There is almost nothing better than a good, juicy burger. This one is no exception. And because the weather is getting a little warmer and it has been so beautiful out, we have been using the grill more.

    Double Jack Mushroom Burgers
    Here’s the skinny on these burgers and a few things you need to know. First off, I really don’t like the taste of whiskey, but in these burgers, it only enhances the flavor of the beef. Second, Hunter Hann loves the taste of whiskey. So these burgers are going in the “Husband Approved” category! 
    The reason these burgers are “double jack” burgers is because there is Jack Daniel’s in the meat to flavor the burgers, and in the mushrooms.

    Double Jack Mushroom Burgers
        makes 6 burgers
    2 1/4 lb {or 36 oz} lean ground beef sirloin
    1/4 C Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey 
    1 T Worcestershire 
    2 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp garlic salt
    1 tsp pepper
    6 slices of provolone
    6 whole wheat burger buns
    For the Jack Mushrooms
    12 oz sliced baby portabella mushrooms
    1 T butter
    1/4 C Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey
    1/2 packet of Splenda {optional}*
    1 tsp Worcestershire 
    1/2 tsp garlic salt
    For the burgers, in a large bowl, combine the meat, whiskey, worcestershire, onion and garlic powder, garlic salt and pepper together. Cover and let rest in fridge for 30 or more minutes so the flavors all get combined.
    Preheat grill. Remove from fridge and form into 6 patties. 
    Place burgers on the grill and cook to preferred doneness. Meanwhile, heat regular skillet or cast iron skillet to medium and melt butter. Pour mushroom in skillet and add whiskey, splenda, worcestershire and garlic salt. Stir everything and let liquid reduce down, {or if you’re really fancy, flambĂ© the whiskey}.

    When the burgers are done, place a slice of provolone on top and close grill for 30 seconds or so, until the cheese melts. Remove burgers and top with jack mushrooms.

    * This is such a savory burger that I like to a little sweetness to the mushrooms by adding a little slpenda, but that’s totally optional. So there you have it! A husband approved burger. What have you been grilling up lately?
