Mushroom burger with onion rings

What you need:

1 pack Mushroom Patties

4 onions sliced into rings
200 ml beer
175 g plain flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
Flaked salt
1 litre frying oil

200 grams brown field mushrooms
Dried thyme

2 red onions
100 ml pickling vinegar
100 ml sugar (about 80 g)
Lemon juice


What to do:

Onion rings
Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper thoroughly. Then whisk the beer into the mixture until you get a smooth batter.

Heat a pan with the oil. Test the temperature by dipping the wooden tip of a match into the oil – it is perfect when the oil sizzles around the wooden tip.

Separate all the onion slices, so you get a pile of onion rings.

Place a handful of onion rings in the beer batter, then take up the rings one by one and lower them into the oil.

Fry 10-12 rings at a time.

Remove them with a slotted spoon when they are crisp and golden.

Let them drip on a piece of kitchen paper, and sprinkle flaked salt over them.

Pickled red onions
Bring the sugar and vinegar to the boil in a saucepan. Add the onions and boil them for 2-3 minutes.

Remove the onions with a slotted spoon and place them in a jar. Boil the vinegar rapidly over a high heat, without a lid, for about 2 minutes or until there is about 100 – 50 ml left.

Add lemon juice and pour the marinade over the onions. Close with an airtight lid and store in the fridge until you serve.

Fried mushrooms

Heat the pan and add a little oil. Slice the mushrooms thinly and add them to the hot pan. Add dried thyme, and continue frying the mushrooms until the liquid has evaporated and they are deliciously brown.

Warm your burger buns in the oven.

Heat the Mushroom Patties in a pan with a little oil over a medium heat for about 4 minutes on each side, until a crust has formed. Allow them to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

While the patties are frying, prepare the accompaniments. The fried mushrooms, onion rings, pickled red onions, tomatoes, mayonnaise and lettuce.

Now you are ready to assemble the ultimate mushroom burger!
