Shiitake Mushroom Burgers

Are you looking for something new to do with your burgers? This recipe is simple and just glams up the traditional burger a little. I'm sure you'll love it!

1 oz. dried mushrooms, such as shiitake
1 1/2 lbs. ground chuck
1 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 T. dried tarragon
1 t. Kosher salt
1/2 t. black pepper
1/2 t. granulated garlic
1/2 t. Worchestershire sauce

In a medium bowl cover mushrooms with boiling water and allow them to soak until softened, about 45 minutes.
Drain the mushrooms and squeeze out the excess water.

Blot the mushrooms with paper towels, cut out the tough stems and discard.

In a food processor, process the mushrooms until finely chopped and place them in a medium bowl.

Add the remaining ingredients and gently mix with your hands.

Shape into 4 patties, about 3/4 inches thick.

Grill(I like to use my countertop grill), place on buns, top with your favorite toppings.
That's it. Easy !!!
