To all my lemon pepper steppers out there, here is a new challenge to conquer. I introduce to you the spicy lemon pepper mushroom burger.

The Joys That Comes From Lemons

We all enjoy some lemon pepper. Well, maybe not all of us, but for the ones that do like it, we can’t get enough of it.

It is something about lemon pepper that is so good. Do not get me wrong, lemons are cool, but I am not the biggest fan of it.

Yet, here I am talking about my love for lemon pepper. Furthermore, I am in my thirties, calling myself a “lemon pepper stepper”.

No, I am not ashamed of my lemon pepper stepper title. If you had a good lemon pepper recipe, then you would not be ashamed, either.

Trust me, after you try this spicy lemon pepper mushroom burger, you will be calling yourself a lemon pepper stepper too!

Spicy Lemon Pepper Is Good?

I do not have data to prove this, but most people eat lemon pepper dishes with no extra flavors added to the dish.

Fortunately, I am not most people. This is what gives me the luxury of trying new things that most people would not even think of putting together.

On the contrary, this can be a double-edged sword, especially when the food is terrible, but for recipes like the spicy lemon pepper mushroom burger, it is worth it.

Lemon pepper seasoning is quite compatible with spicy ingredients.

They mesh well without one ingredient overpowering the other.

Lemon Pepper Goes Well With Mushrooms?

On my journey as a lemon pepper stepper, I realized that lemon pepper goes well with vegetables.

It can be broccoli, spinach, kale, etc. Moreover, I tested this theory out on some mushrooms, and the results were incredible!

The mushrooms were seasoned to perfection, and it really took the spicy lemon pepper mushroom burger to another level.

I Love Mushroom Burgers

I thoroughly enjoy a good mushroom burger, and can you blame me? The taste of mushroom just goes so well with beef and buns, especially when the ingredients are fresh.

I do not remember the first time I tried a mushroom burger, but it feels like that burger has been a part of my palette my entire life.

I never had a family member or friend make this for me, so I am sure the first time I had this burger was at a burger joint.

Regardless, nothing beats making this delicious burger yourself. In fact, burgers in general are delicious.

You should try your burger with some jalapeños and onions. Also, a simple burger with double beef patties will work.

Making The Spicy Lemon Pepper Mushroom Burger Recipe

Serving Size: 1

Mushroom Burger

  • Ingredients
    • 8 Oz Ground Beef
    • 1 Hamburger Bun
    • 1/2 Tsp Black Pepper
    • 1/4 Tsp Salt
    • 1/2 Tsp Lemon Pepper
    • 2 Oz Mushrooms
    • 1/2 Tsp Red Crushed Pepper Flakes
    • 2 Oz Onions
    • 1/2 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • Equipment
    • Skillet
    • Lid
    • Spatula
    • Stove Top

Cooking The Beef

Heat the skillet at a medium temperature on a stovetop for a few minutes. While the skillet is heating up, form your beef patties.

Once the skillet is heated, place your patties in the skillet and cook the patties for 6 minutes. After 6 minutes, flip the patties over and cook for 6 minutes.

In the remaining 2 minutes, add the mozzarella cheese. To ensure that the cheese on top of the patties melt, put some grease from the burger on top of the cheese.

Another option is that you can put the lid on top of the skillet.

Cooking The Mushrooms And Onions

Once the burger patties are ready, remove them from the skillet, and add the onions first. Let the onions cook for 2 minutes, then add the mushrooms.

Add the lemon pepper and red crush pepper flakes, then let the onions and mushrooms cook for 3 minutes.

Toasting The Buns

Remove the mushrooms and onions from the skillet, and replace them with the hamburger buns.

Have the flat side of the buns on the surface of the skillet, and cook the buns for 1 minute, or until desired crispiness.

Assemble The Burger

Once the bun is all nice and toasty, assemble the burger, then dig in.
