Prep Time:
15 minutes


Cook Time:
10-15 minutes


Total Time:
25-30 minutes




  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1-1/4 cups white mushroom caps, finely chopped

  • 1 large clove garlic, minced

  • 2 pounds ground veal

  • 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped

  • vegetable oil cooking spray

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring for about 1 minute, or until they begin to soften. Add the garlic, salt, and pepper and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the mushrooms soften. Set aside to cool.

  2. Combine the veal, parsley, cooled mushroom mixture, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Using your hands, mix well. Form into 6 patties. Refrigerate until ready to grill.

  3. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill. Lightly spray the grill rack with vegetable oil cooking spray. The coals should be modestly hot.

  4. Grill the burgers for about 8 minutes. Turn and grill for about 6 minutes longer for medium-well burgers.
