This recipe was submitted by Nutrisystem member, HD, through our Recipe Submission page. HD enjoys having this mushroom burger open-faced, with the bruschetta on the top half of the bun and the hamburger patty and sautéed mushrooms and onions on the bottom half. The bruschetta is like an appetizer! “When adding extra ingredients like grilled mushrooms and onions, it makes the burger so tall, I thought I’d split it up and use the top part of the bun for a homemade bruschetta to serve along side the burger. This is extra filling,” says HD. “It was tasty and nice to have a big appetizer like bruschetta, and didn’t miss the other half of the bun on this burger because it was piled high with pan-grilled mushrooms and onions.”

Homemade bruschetta and cooked veggies isn’t the only thing this tasty mushroom burger has. It also features a homemade burger sauce that’s simple and easy to make! It contains a blend of soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, yellow mustard and steak seasoning, all Free Foods on the Nutrisystem plan. Add a drizzle of this sauce to your burger and use the save rest for using with steak or grilled chicken!
