In a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat, cook chopped mushrooms until most of the moisture has been evaporated, approximately 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
In a large bowl combine cooled mushrooms, beef, pork and spices. Using your hand mix until incorporated.
Form into patties. Place on parchment lined baking tray and chill in refrigerator for 30-45 minutes.
Cook either on the barbecue or on the stove-top until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees fahrenheit.
Turn off BBQ and place brie on patties. Keep warm until brie starts to melt. Remove from grill. Place burger patty on buns and top with relish. Place deep fried sweet pickles on top and using a skewer, secure them in place. Serve hot!
Deep Fried Pickles
Heat oil in medium sized pot to 375°F.
In three shallow bowls place flour, beaten egg, and breadcrumbs.
Dip each sweet pickle into flour mixture, then into egg, then coat pickle with bread crumbs.
After all pickles have been breaded, begin to fry in batches. Fry in hot oil for 3-4 minutes, turning once, or until deep golden brown. Remove pickles and place on paper towel to drain.
