Sauter the mushrooms until golden brown.

At the end of frying, you can add a little lemon juice to bring out the mushrooms' flavour, but this is not essential.

Hamburgers don't have to be the greasy flabby things you find in fast-food outlets, well-made they can be excellent. It's a very convivial recipe as everything goes on the table, and everyone assembles their own burger according to personal taste.
