PW’s Mushroom Swiss Burgers with Spicy Fry Sauce

  Doing a “regular” post for Memorial Day, since you all are having some lighthearted family fun. 🙂  Tune in tomorrow to hear about the Vow Renewal and all God has been doing in our lives since our story came out……


Man, do I love a good burger! 

Avery says “Wait, did you say BOOGER or BURGER, Momma?” 009

“I said Burger, sweetie.”

Avery: “K, good I wanted to make sure it wasn’t from my nose.”

  Yup, no worries there darlin’!!!!

  You can’t go wrong with a recipe from The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond.  We’ve made these TWICE now!

  Most of the time when I make her stuff we just say yum and keep going, I don’t bother blogging it because it’s already made its mark in the blog world and probably even on her TV show!  BUT, for these burgers, I am going to make an exception and post something of hers.  We did these full size, rather than sliders and doubled the Spicy Fry Sauce.  I will post my changes, if you want her original follow the link back to her amazing food blog.

PW’s Mushroom Swiss Burgers with Spicy Fry Sauce

Mushroom Swiss Burger (3)


  • 2/3 cup Mayonnaise
  • 4 Tablespoons Ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (less If You’re Sensitive To Spice!)
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1/2 whole Medium Onion, Finely Diced
  • 8 ounces, weight White Mushrooms, Chopped Finely
  • 4 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
  • Kosher Salt And Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 8 burger patties
  • 8 slices Swiss Cheese
  • 8 whole wheat burger buns, toasted with butter

Make your Spicy Fry Sauce:  In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, ketchup, and cayenne. Stir together until totally combined. Set aside.

While hubby is out grilling your hamburger patties, seasoned just the way your family likes, melt butter in a large skillet. Add onions and cook over medium heat for five minutes, stirring frequently. Add mushrooms and toss around, then add Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Cook for several minute over medium heat, or until all liquid has evaporated.

Have hubs bring in the grilled burgers, add a bloop (yes, that’s a word) of mushrooms and onions to the top, and cover with a slice of swiss.  Send him back out to melt the cheese on the hot grill.  While he is gone, butter toast the hamburgers buns, then smother in fry sauce.  Assemble and serve with curly fries.

Happy Memorial Day!   ~T

Our freedom is the most precious legacy we can pass on to our children. There can be no alternative that would satisfy the sacrifices made by those who have defended our liberty with their very lives. As we look back today over our nation’s history, we must also acknowledge those who are at this very moment fighting on other battlefields in our world to recapture or preserve freedom from the grasp of evildoers who would enslave men and families in false religious cults, dictatorial governments, and the insanely narcissistic men who consider themselves to be gods in their own eyes.  The cost has been high. It may get much higher in the near future. There are still those who would love to see our nation fall. They are of that evil empire that former president Ronald Reagan warned us about. We cannot forsake all that our nation has stood for and all that our brave soldiers ,sailors, airmen and Marines have died for, as well as those who are carrying the banner of a freedom-loving country to various other nations in turmoil around the world. We must rally around our flag once more. We must pray for those in harm’s way, today and always. It is our duty. It is our responsibility. And it is our honor. Let’s not fail to take a stand for freedom. Let’s pay our debt as fully as those who have gone before us…no matter the cost.”
