Smoky Swiss Burgers with a Mushroom Sauce

1 lb. ground chuck ($2.29)
1/2 lb. ground beef ($.69)
1 tsp. cumin ($.10)
2 T. steak sauce, any variety (free after coupons)
1 tsp. black pepper ($.05)
1 T. each dry minced garlic and onion ($.15)
1 tsp. hickory msoked salt ($.10)

Mushroom Sauce
8 oz. white button mushrooms, sliced very thin ($.99)

6 slices Swiss cheese ($.85)
6 croissants or buttery buns ($1.50)

Combine ground beef, chuck, 1 tsp. cumin, steak sauce, black pepper, salt, garlic, and onion. Divide into 6 equal portions. Form each portion into a patty and fry over medium-high heat until burgers reach desired doneness.

While burgers are fry, add oil to a medium non-stick fry pan over high heat. When oil is hot, add mushrooms, salt, pepper, cumin, Liquid Smoke, and garlic. Cook over medium high, stirring often, until mushrooms are tender.

Top burgers with mushrooms, then with cheese.
Serve on bun or croissant.
