Swiss BurgerSwiss mushroom burgers are good.  Sweet and sour onions make them fantastic.

“I could binge on these burgers!”—Debbie

There is nothing difficult about these burgers.  Make burger patties, cook them over a grill or in a skillet, and top them with Swiss cheese for the last few minutes so that the cheese melts.  While the burgers are cooking, sauté sliced mushrooms.

Place the burgers on buns, top with sautéed mushrooms, and then with sweet and sour onions.  (Recipe follows.)

Sweet and Sour Onions


2 large onions cut into slices and then cut into 1/2-inch pieces
4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup apricot jam
2 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon salt
dash of pepper


In a skillet, sauté the sliced onions in the butter until translucent.   Add the soy sauce, jam, sugar, vinegar, and water.  Add the garlic powder and ground ginger.  Simmer the mixture until the onions and the water have nearly evaporated and the onions are in a caramelized sauce.  Stir in the salt and pepper, adding more to taste.  Set aside.
