Who doesn’t love burgers especially if they are fresh out from the grill. These burgers are awesome ,the combination of the mushrooms with the caramelized onions and the garlic and parsley in the aioli makes these burgers burst with flavors.You can make these burgers with any kind of cheese you like,but swiss or provolone would be the best.
