These chicken and mushroom blended burgers are flavorful, simple to make and a lighter alternative to a traditional beef burger.
Place the mushrooms in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped.
In a large bowl combine mushrooms, chicken, onion and garlic; mix all ingredients until incorporated. Form into 6 patties (1/4 pound) and place onto a baking sheet. Refrigerate for one hour.
Cook patties either on the barbecue or on the stove-top until internal temperature reaches 160°F. During last minute of cooking top patties with cheese. Keep warm until cheese begins to melt.
Place patty on warmed bun and top with lettuce, tomato and red onion.
