Mushroom & Swiss Burgers

I think it is a guy thing.
My husband sometimes gets overwhelmed when reading a huge restaurant menu.  If it is the typical all American bar and grill, 90% of the time he will order a mushroom and swiss burger and call it good.
He is not a picky eater and will eat most anything, but when there are 1,000+ choices in front of him, he will almost always stay within his comfort zone and order this burger.  He must feel safe ordering it, as you usually can't mess up a burger too badly, right?
On the same page, my brother was telling me this summer how Hardee's {the fast food chain} always had a great mushroom and swiss burger.  I also remember a good friend from high school always ordering that burger from Hardee's as well.  They must know what they are doing?
Anyway, I wanted to recreate this burger at home.  We grill burgers all the time, especially in the summer, usually at least once a week.  And we have mushrooms often, but I never even thought to put them ON the burger.  Sometimes the easiest things are the hardest to come by.
I realize if you don't like mushrooms you're probably turning up your nose right now {they tend to do that to people who don't like them!}, but hang in there folks.  Look what I have coming up soon!
  • Beef & Potato Burritos
