Swiss Mushroom Burger Recipe Tips
- Make sure not to overcook your burgers. About 6-8 minutes per side will give you a beautiful burger every time.
- One slice of Swiss cheese is enough, but if you want an extra cheesy burger, you should use at least 2, if not 3, slices of Swiss.
- We used 80/20 ground beef, but if you want a leaner burger, you can use lean ground beef, 90/10 ground beef.

Mushroom and Swiss Burger Recipe Sauce
We use sautéed mushrooms and onions as our mushroom swiss burger sauce recipe, and let me tell you, that flavor combination? It is out of this world!
The freshness of the onions and mushrooms, combined with the melted Swiss cheese, takes this homemade mushroom swiss burger over the top! The onions and mushrooms cook up in only 10 minutes, so they’re ready for your burger in no time.
I also love using thinly sliced portobello mushrooms in this recipe. They add so much to the depth of flavor.

Mushroom Swiss Burger FAQs
To make these cheesy Swiss burgers keto-friendly, simply skip the bun. The rest of the recipe is a perfect fit for a keto meal plan.
Stovetop Swiss Mushroom Burgers
You can easily cook these burgers on the stove in a cast iron skillet instead of on the grill.
- Lightly grease your pan with olive oil and sear for about 6 minutes on the first side, and about 8 on the opposite side over medium-high heat.
- When the burgers are just about cooked, add your mushrooms and onions and Swiss cheese and lower the heat to medium-low. Cover the pan with a lid and allow the cheese to melt.
