Ground Beef Burger Stuffed Mushrooms with Spinach, Cheese, and Barbecue Sauce

Ground Beef Burger Stuffed Mushrooms with Spinach, Cheese, and Barbecue Sauce

I have to put up with a lot of teasing about the amount of food I buy when I'm planning a barbecue. In my defense, most of the women I know live in fear that a guest might possibly go without. Like myself, they buy that extra block of cheese, platters of vegetables, or in my case, one too many packages of ground beef. Thus the need to make stuffed mushrooms.

Not being one to waste food, I decided to make use of those forgotten burgers cooked and ready to go on the grill, and stuff them into the pile of leftover mushrooms hanging out on the vegetable platter.

While I'm at it, I might as well add the leftover cheddar cheese into the mix too, along with the bun I've turned into breadcrumbs.

My husband called these the perfect stuffed mushroom appetizer recipe - his favorite vegetable packed with his favorite burger. At the risk of tooting my own horn, I have to say I agree.

Happy cooking!
