Serves 4 (serving size: 1 patty and about 1/4 cup onion mixture)

Serve these saucy, cheesy patties with a simple spinach salad. Not a fan of Gruyère? Try a mild cheddar instead.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine beef, 2 1/4 teaspoons oil, Worcestershire, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a bowl; mix with hands. Divide into 4 portions, shaping each into a 4-inch patty.

Step 2

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Add patties to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side. Remove patties from pan. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion and mushrooms to pan; cook 6 minutes or until mushrooms brown. Sprinkle with flour, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper; cook 2 minutes. Add stock to pan; cook 1 minute or until thickened and slightly reduced, stirring frequently. Return patties to pan, and spoon onion mixture over patties. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Cover; cook 3 minutes or until cheese melts.

Needs something

Badly in need of more seasoning--herbs, wine, something. And like another reviewer, I cut the oil drastically. It's just not needed and butter would have given a better flavor to the vegetables. It's okay, but really dull.

Easy, fast, tasty

I received this recipe via Cooking Light Diet.  My family loved this.  The best part was how easy it was to make.  I served with an arugula salad and am still feeling light on my feet but very satisfied.  Thanks CL!

Good weeknight recipe

I made this recipe for 2 of us made 3 patties not 4 so we have one leftover. 1/4 pound patty didn't sound like much of a dinner. Very good, of course more cheese and it would have been even better. I didn't used all the olive oil called for in the patties and used less salt.  I served with a salad.

I was able to cut out a lot of the olive oil.  I didn't add any to the hamburger mix.  And I only needed 1 Tablespoon for both the searing of the patties and the mushroom/onion mixture.  The flavors were really good.  Hubby liked it too.  Next time I might add a teaspoon of mustard to the sauce.  Easy to prepare.  Will definitely make again.  We had it with oven roasted potatoes.  Would be good with mashed potatoes too.

Quick and tasty

I used cheddar on the kids steaks.  Everyone really enjoyed this meal and it only took 20 minutes.  I paired it with steamed broccoli.  No leftovers tonight. 

Nice week day meal
