Grilled Porcini Mushroom Burgers
  • 1  ounce  dried porcini mushrooms
  • 2  pounds  extra lean ground beef
  • 1/4  cup  snipped fresh basil
  • 1  teaspoon  snipped fresh thyme
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  kosher salt
  • 1  teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
  • 1 - 2  tablespoons  purchased garlic-flavored olive oil
  • 6  purchased thick olive focaccia bread wedges
  • 1/2  cup  shredded Asiago or mozzarella cheese
  • 1  recipe Tomato Relish

1. Place mushrooms in a small bowl; cover with boiling water. Let soak for 10 minutes. Drain, rinse well, and chop. Set aside.

2. Combine chopped porcini mushrooms, ground beef, basil, thyme, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix well. Shape into 6 patties about 3/4-inch thick. Brush patties with garlic oil.

3. Place burger patties on the lightly oiled rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 14 to 18 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in centers registers 160 degree F, turning burgers once halfway through grilling.

4. Place focaccia wedges on the grill rack; grill for 1 to 2 minutes or until toasted. Remove burgers and focaccia from grill. Place each burger on a wedge of focaccia; sprinkle immediately with cheese. Spoon Tomato Relish on top. Makes 6 burgers.
