  • 8 oz (227g) fresh crimini mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 lb (225g) lean ground beef
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 cups (500 mL) cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced
  • 2 small roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) dill pickles, sliced
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded lettuce
  • Burger Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) ketchup
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) relish
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) onion, finely diced
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) white sugar


  1. Place mushrooms in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped.
  2. In a large saucepan, brown mushrooms until moisture has been released, approximately 5-6 minutes. Add onion, beef and garlic, continue to cook for 10 minutes or until ground beef is cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, combine all burger sauce ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.
  4. Place one tortilla in the bottom of a dry grill pan. Sprinkle with cheese, red onion, tomatoes, and dill pickles. Spoon on meat mixture. Top with the second tortilla. If your grill pan comes with a Panini press (lid) place preheated press on top of tortilla. If no press is available, carefully flip the quesadilla over using a spatula.
  5. Remove from skillet and cut into wedges. Serve topped with fresh shredded lettuce and burger sauce.
