Creamy Garlic Mushroom Burger Recipe

You’ll remember every remarkable bite of this burger because it’s made with gourmet Sara Lee Artesano Bakery Buns.

21-30 Minutes


  • 4 Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bakery Buns, toasted
  • 4 beef patties
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 8 mini portabella mushrooms, sliced
  • 6 slices thick bacon, cut in half
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 6 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 cup Extra Sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
  • Handful baby spinach leaves


Preheat the grill to medium heat. Season beef patties with salt and pepper, and cook for 4 minutes on each side.
Heat 1½ tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan. Once the oil is hot, add the sliced mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper, and cook for 4-5 minutes or until soft. Transfer mushrooms to a plate.
Heat the remaining ½ tablespoon of oil in the same frying pan. Once the oil is hot, add bacon and cook until crispy. Transfer to a plate.
Return half of the cooked mushrooms to the frying pan. Add garlic, and cook over low heat for a minute. Add heavy cream and grated Cheddar, and bring to a gentle boil, stirring to combine. Reduce heat to low, and assemble the burgers.
On each bun bottom, layer spinach, cooked mushrooms and 1 grilled burger patty. Spoon cheesy garlic mushroom sauce over the top, then layer on crispy bacon. Top each with a toasted bun lid and enjoy!
