  • 4 frozen beef burgers , such as sirloin
  • 2 plum tomatoes
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp oregano leaves
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp hot-red-chili-flakes
  • 1 cup crumbled goat cheese , or grated cheddar or mozzarella


  • Place frozen burgers in a large frying pan, preferably non-stick, set over medium-high heat. Cook until lightly browned around edges, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add a little oil, if necessary. Meanwhile, slice tomatoes into thin rounds and pepper into bite-size strips. Thinly slice onion and separate into rings.
  • When burgers are lightly browned, remove from pan. Add pepper, onion and mushrooms to pan. Stir-fry until mushrooms take on a little colour, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Return burgers to pan. Place mushroom mixture and tomatoes overtop. Sprinkle with seasonings. Cover and cook until burgers are done as you like, 4 to 6 more minutes, then sprinkle with cheese. Great with roasted potato wedges.

Use fresh pizza toppings – mushrooms, yellow pepper, tomatoes and lots of gooey cheese – to top frozen burgers in this speedy sauté.

Homemade Burgers

Instead of frozen burgers, make your own burgers and cook over medium heat, 5 minutes per side, before adding toppings.
