Classic beef burger patties with a mushroom topping

Serves 4 – 6

Recipe developed for AMC Cookware.

A good patty recipe is great to have on hand. Enjoy ‘fakeaways’ at home with this delicious recipe I developed for AMC Cookware. The mushroom topping adds a lot of flavour and is our healthier take on a creamy mushroom sauce.


500 g lean beef mince

20 ml (4 tsp) ground coriander

10 ml (2 tsp) ground cumin

75 ml (5 tbsp) chopped fresh Italian parsley

1 extra large egg, beaten

60 ml (¼ cup) uncooked ordinary oats

salt and pepper to taste

30 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil

1 large onion, quartered and thinly sliced

3-4 large brown mushrooms, thickly sliced

10 ml (2 tsp) wholegrain mustard, or more to taste


  1. Place mince in a large bowl and break it up with a big fork. Add remaining ingredients except the oil, onion, mushrooms and mustard. Season to taste. Mix well with a wooden spoon or by hand.
  2. Shape mixture into 4-6 large even-sized patties and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand (see tip).
  3. Heat a large frying pan (AMC 24 cm or 28 cm Long Handle Chef’s Pan) over medium temperature.
  4. Pour half the oil into the pan and fry the patties on both sides until golden brown and cooked to your preference. Covering the patties with the lid for the last few minutes of frying results in perfectly juicy patties. Spoon out and keep warm.
  5. Add the remaining oil to the pan and sauté the onion for a few minutes. Add the mushrooms and continue frying until golden brown and cooked. Stir in the mustard and season to taste.
  6. Serve patties on your choice of burger buns, with lettuce, tomato, gherkins and a good spoonful of the mushroom mixture. Or add any other of your favourite healthy burger toppings.


  1. To save time, mix and shape the patties in advance. Cover and allow to rest in the fridge until you are ready to fry and serve these burgers.
