hb’s incrediburgers

by jani on May 26, 2012

One of our kid’s favorite grilled dishes  HB created years ago, we named, Incrediburgers. I think it stems back to my son’s best friend calling these burgers, “incredible”!  I tend to agree! They are delish and a perfect meal for a Memorial Day BBQ! By the way, Happy Memorial Day, to all my readers. It’s always a special day of remembrance in our family!


(Serves 4)

  • 2lbs ground Angus beef, recommend 15% fat content, separated into four patties
  • Cavender’s seasoning (we use it on almost everything!)
  • teriyaki baste/glaze (not sauce, this is thicker)
  • 4 slices of aged Swiss cheese (we’re partial to Tillamook-we lived in Portland, Oregon and loved the Tillamook Factory!)
  • 4 pineapple rings, we prefer fresh (how to grill pineapple is in a previous post)
  • 4 Portobello mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 c white wine
  • 4 large hamburger buns, buttered (prefer Kaiser rolls for slightly crispier exterior)


Remove stem from mushrooms

Melt butter in saucepan and add mushrooms to saute. Add white wine and cook until liquid is absorbed.

Set cooked mushrooms aside, preferably in 150F heated oven.

Place split buttered rolls under broiler until golden brown.

Warning: Watch rolls carefully or you may end up with charred remains and a headache from the 15 minute fire alarm!

Much, much better!

Season patties on both sides with Cavender’s.

They are now ready; grill patties over 350F heat for approx 12 minutes or until medium rare. 5 minutes before the burgers are done, brush the teriyaki glaze on both sides. as you flip the burgers, add a slice of Swiss cheese to cooked side until melted. At the same time grill pineapple slices until grill marks appear on both sides

To assemble burgers, add burger to toasted buns followed by pineapple slice and top with mushroom. This is burger works well with fresh corn on the cob!

If you prefer, you can add condiments (mayo and dijon). Personally, the combination is so wonderful, I prefer all these flavors without any condiments.

I hope you have a great holiday!
