Beemster Burgers with Balsamic Mushrooms

There's nothing like the first burger of grilling season.  To make it even better, top it with Gouda and balsamic mushrooms.  Oh yeah, don't forget the ice cold beer!
Recipe developed for Beemster

Prep time: 
Cook time: 

Serving size: 4

1 1/3 pounds ground beef 
2 tablespoons butter 
8 ounces sliced mushrooms 
1 large clove garlic 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar 
4 ounces thinly sliced Beemster Paradiso Gouda
4 hamburger buns 

Shape ground beef into 4 patties.

Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat and sauté mushrooms, garlic and salt 6 minutes or until mushrooms are lightly browned and tender. Add vinegar and cook until liquid evaporates; keep warm.

Grill or broil burgers to desired doneness. Top with sliced Beemster Paradiso and cook until Cheese is melted. (Cheese will hold its shape.)

Arrange burgers on buns and top with mushroom mixture. Garnish with lettuce, tomato and/or red onion, if desired.
