This recipe does not make very good leftovers.

1 tsp olive oil
12 ounces crimini mushrooms (sliced)
6 ounces 95% lean ground beef
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/8 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
1 tsp dried sage
2 slices tomato
1 ounce Provolone cheese
2 whole wheat or gluten-free hamburger buns
2 leaves lettuce

Place the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat.

Add the sliced mushrooms and cook, tossing frequently, until caramelized (about 10 minutes). Remove to a plate and place in the refrigerator to cool.

When the mushrooms are cool mix 2/3 with the ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and sage until well blended. Pat into two burgers.

When ready to cook heat a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add the burgers and cook for about 7 minutes on the first side. Turn.

Top the burgers with the remaining mushrooms, a slice of tomato and then the cheese. Cook for about 7 - 10 minutes until the cheese has melted slighty.

Serve on a hamburger bun topped with lettuce.
