Mushroom-Crusted Chicken Burgers



I feel like if I were to do some data analysis of my blog content, the two most prevalent ingredients (besides things like oil and salt) would be poblanos and mushrooms. And I am more than okay with that.

Dried porcini mushrooms are one of my favorite ingredients (though they’re probably one of my husband’s least favorite, given the cost per ounce), so I knew as soon as I saw this burger on Josie’s blog that it would be making an appearance at dinner very soon. Burgers have been one of my favorite things to make since starting a new job, because they’re so incredibly quick to whip  up, and the possibilities are endless.

These particular burgers are pretty fantastic. The porcini flavor is laced throughout the burger, making them earthy and, you know, mushroomy. The arugula provides a great peppery bite, and the Havarti is so creamy and melts beautifully. I’m honestly pretty indifferent to Havarti in general, but I really adored it on these burgers.

  1. I have been dreaming about these burgers every since Josie posted about them. So glad to finally be moving into our apartment so I can get in the kitchen and make them! Yours look totally drool worthy.

  2. You are going to be SO proud of my quest to like mushrooms progress…last week I made a dish with a whole POUND of them! And LIKED it!

    Porcinis I’ve always kinda liked though (of course, the expensive kind of mushroom haha)…I can see them being great in a burger!

  3. What an interesting idea. I’m making my menu plan right now for next week and think I’m going to throw these on there – I love the thought of the mushroom flavor mixed all throughout the burger! Plus they look so light and summery for the awesome weather we’ve been having.

  4. I’m OK with mushrooms and poblanos being the most used ingredients in my house too. I just love both! Great burger. Can I come over for dinner sometime?

  5. mmm, I love porcinis – all their umami-goodness. I actually have a bag of dried ones in the pantry and didn’t know what to do with them next. This is perfect.
