Hamburger Steaks with Swiss Cheese, Mushrooms and Onions

 There's nothing more comforting than a good old fashioned hamburger steak for dinner. And I'm sure there are as many family recipes for them as there are people in this world. This is mine. Hope you enjoy!

2 slices bread ( I used sour dough)
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef 
1/2 small white onion. minced 
 2 garlic cloves, minced
1 large egg, lightly beaten 
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon course ground pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
1 (8-oz.) package sliced fresh mushrooms
1 medium-size sweet onion, sliced 
4 slices Swiss cheese 


Place bread slices into a food processor and pulse into breadcrumbs. Add breadcrumbs and all other ingredients in a mixing bowl. Using clean or gloved hands or a wooden spoon, mix ingredients together until well combined and form into 4 equal size patties.

Place hamburger steaks in a non stick pan (or use cooking spray) over medium high heat. Cook on each side until done to your liking  Remove patties from pan. Add oil to the hot pan and add in mushrooms and onions. Saut√© until tender. Place patties on plates, add cheese and top with hot mushrooms and onions. Add your favorite garnish. I love sliced jalapenos. Imagine that : ) Enjoy!
