WHY MUSHROOM BLENDED BURGERS ARE HOT!
Mushroom blended burgers have fewer calories, less fat and more flavour than regular burgers, fitting the requirements of an increasingly popular health-conscious menu perfectly. And, if you love having burgers on your menu, you’ll be obsessed with mushroom blended burgers because the meaty, umami flavour of fungi enhances the flavour of every other ingredient in the burger. The mushroom blended burger is literally a guilt-free, sustainable burger option for consumers who are reluctant to do away with meat but who are looking for a burger with fewer calories.
*Eligible mushroom varieties include ONLY store-bought fresh cultivated White Buttons, Portabellas (big browns) and Portabellinis (small browns). NO wild or exotic mushrooms are allowed.
** Chicken, beef, lamb, turkey, pork, fish, ostrich, venison.
