Mushroom Burger with Spicy Pepper Relish and Celeriac Remoulade

I have been wanting to make something like this ever since I started getting big mushrooms in the vegebox, they are lovely simply roasted but they don’t go very far, but I did remember seeing a mushroom burger stall Sporeboy at the Big Chill they have a website  We are Sporeboys – where you can find them at a festival near you

All I did was cook the mushroom whole with onions , garlic and a strong yet creamy orange cheese with blue veins Colton Basset Shropshire Blue

Once cooked assemble the burger with rolls or as above  fresh ciabata ( though you could make your own buns ) lambs lettuce ,a spicy red pepper relish,  &  celeriac remoulade all of which added a spicy  crunch to a mushroom , so juicy that biting into it caused a jet of sweet onion, cheese and mushroom to jet in the air.

Just as delicious a beef burger , you could any of your favorite burger fillings I like horseradish, gerkins or bacon. I will be trying this on the BBQ in summer
