Peach Mushroom Burgers with Caramelized Onions

Hello! Thanks for checking in, I’m back! This song just feels so appropriate right now and is playing in my head as I’m typing. I have so much to fill you guys in on, but the point of this post is to provide a new easy dinner recipe!

Part of me firing up the blog again was due to some inspiration by following other bloggers and some encouragement from my boyfriend and friends. I was always concerned about not being creative enough, or a good enough cook to provide recipes, or fit enough to create workouts. Thankfully the people around me reminded me that part of this process and journey is to document failures as well as successes.

I’m happy to report that my goal is to come back to blogging as regularly as I first was and I have a long list of recipes I want to test out! This burger below was so yummy. When I first learned about paleo I switched out buns for grilled portobello mushrooms and honestly, no regrets. I know I’m hanging on to summer by still cooking with peaches, but I’m just not ready to let go yet.

I’ll be back next week with a life update! Until then enjoy these peach mushroom burgers!

Ingredients (Serves 2):

1/2 pound ground beef

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp paparika

2 portobello mushrooms

1 peach

1 tsp of butter or olive oil or ghee

1 yellow onion

crumbles of goat cheese

 

Directions:

  1. Chop the onion into little strips or rings and place in a medium sauce pan with butter. Continue to stir every few minutes until light brown and caramelized. This will take about 10-13 minutes.
  2. While the onions are cooking, make two burger patties out of the ground beef. Once the patties are made, season both sides with the salt, pepper, and paprika.
  3. Scoop out the underside of the mushroom.
  4. Place a grill pan on medium and place the burgers and mushrooms on until cooked. The mushrooms will release some moisture, cook based on preference. I like mine that I can cut easily with a fork and a knife.
  5. Slice the peach into two rings and two caps. Throw the peaches on the grill pan when the burgers and mushrooms have about 1-2 minutes left. I left them on until they had grill marks and gave in when I pressed my finger on them.
  6. Assemble your burgers!

*The best part about this recipe is that you can tailor it to your diet needs. Strict paleo or doing a Whole 30? Eff the goat cheese. Vegetarian? Slap a veggie burger in there instead! Want all the gluten and need some carbs? Throw this bad boy in between a bun! We served ours with a side salad. Eat up!
