In a bowl add soup mix to ground beef and mix together with your clean hands. Form hamburger patties about 1/2 inch thick. Grill for about 5 minutes. While burgers are grilling, stir fry mushrooms in olive oil and add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Slice rolls in half.
Turn burgers and cook for another 4 to 5 minutes. Place cheese slices on top of burgers to melt. Brush French rolls with olive oil and grill for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove burgers and rolls from grill.
Place burgers on French rolls and top with mushrooms. Add mustard, ketchup, or mayonnaise and your favorite toppings.

1 pound ground beef 1 clove garlic, minced 1 small yellow onion, chopped 2 tablespoons tomato paste 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1 teaspoon dried basil 3 ounces brie cheese Romaine lettuce 1 small jar raspberry jam 1 loaf soft French bread
In a large bowl, mix together by hand ground beef, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, and basil. Divide into 6 small balls then poke a small hole with your finger in the middle of each ball. Stuff a piece of brie cheese (about 3/4 inch square) into the hole, then shape around to cover the hole and form patties.
Grill on a hot barbecue for 3-4 minutes on each side. Slice French bread and place lettuce on top, then the patty. Top with a nice dollop of raspberry jam.
Serve burgers open faced. The combination of the raspberry jam and melted brie cheese gives you a burst of delicious flavor.
