Super Mushroom Burgers

This is a recipie I came up with last year for a pot luck dinner and it
went over really well!

Here is what you need:

3 cups of fresh shredded mushrooms (Use your favorite kind!)
1/2 cup finely chopped onion (Red or sweet onions are best!)
1 egg white
1/4 cup Matzo Meal
Nonstick pan or non-fat spray

Use the following seasonings to your own discretion:

Fresh garlic
Black pepper
Hot sauce
Old Bay seasoning (I love this stuff!)

Other option seasonings (Depending on your mood!):


Here's how to make them:
Shred the mushrooms with a cheese grater or food processor. The onions
can be finely chopped or shredded like the mushrooms. In a large bowl
combine the mushrooms and onions. Add the egg white to the mixture and
stir until even. Thicken with the Matzo Meal.
You may need more or less of the Matzo meal, depending on how watery
your mushrooms get. Once the mixture is thick enough, add your
seasonings and form it into patties (As big you want them!) and cook
them on medium heat in a salted, nonstick skillet or use a non-fat
spray. Each burger should take about 5 minutes to cook on each side.
They turn a rather ugly shade of brown when their done. Eat them like
regular burgers with your favorite bread and veggies, with pasta or
throw them in a salad! These are really easy to make and satisfying to

This recipie should make about 6-8 burgers.
