Burgers with mushrooms

This is a burger – Paleo Style.  It rivals some other gluten-loaded burgers out there.  It’s packed with vegetables and doesn’t skimp on the traditional burger taste.  The whole idea revolves around replacing the gluten-bun with a mushroom-bun, hence, “Shroomburger.”

You can enjoy backyard cookouts again without depriving yourself of a delicious burger.
