Gourmet burger lovers, this Mushroom Swiss Burger recipe is guaranteed to make you drool! Topped with fresh sauteed mushrooms and onions, plus melted Swiss cheese, all served on buttery brioche buns. This is the burger dreams are made of!
To season our Swiss cheeseburger recipe, we use steak seasoning. It’s the perfect complement to the juicy mushrooms and onions and melted Swiss cheese.
You can use your favorite kind of steak seasoning. Chicago seasoning is a great choice! You can also make your own using the Santa Maria Rub from our Sirloin Cap Recipe or our Best Steak Seasoning. They’re perfect for grilling recipes!
Mushroom Burger 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.
- 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 90/10 ground beef.
- You can make a burger in the air fryer for a fresh new way to make your burgers! Try our air fryer burger recipe.
- Arugula is a great choice for topping this burger. The extra bite from those tasty greens pairs so well with the sweet mushrooms and onions.
- Chiles – add a fun kick!
- Fried Egg
- Mac and Cheese
- French Fries – 0h yeah!
Best Cheese for Burgers
- Blue cheese
- or Gruyere, our favorite substitute!
Is this recipe keto-friendly?
Yes! 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.
Can I make these burgers on the stove?
Yes! 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.
- Grilling spatula

- Baked Potato Wedges
- Asparagus Air Fryer Fries

I haven’t made this recipe but I make a virtually identical one and I gotta say, this is my dream burger. The bread-to-burger ratio in that picture is perfect, and everything looks so juicy. With mushroom-onion-swiss you do not need any sauces because it bursts with flavor on its own. (The only significant difference between mine and yours is I do not use portobellos, I use shiitake mushrooms, because they have more flavor.) I would not add any more toppings to it. It would detract from the perfect symphony of the core flavors of this burger.

Hi Janine! There is truly nothing better than a mushroom swiss burger! They are so juicy. Using shiitake sounds like it must taste incredible. Thank you so much for your comment and for the compliment!
