Total time

Preparation time
40 minutes

Make sure to process the mushrooms just until coarsely chopped (about 4 pulses) so they match the texture of the ground beef. The mushroom mixture will look a little wet in the pan at first; take the time to let as much liquid as possible cook out for a richer patty that will hold its shape when seared in the pan.

or1 (8-ounce) container cremini mushrooms, stemmed
or4 ounces white button mushrooms, stemmed
or1 tablespoon canola oil
or1 cup finely chopped onion
or4 garlic cloves, minced
or1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
or1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
or8 ounces 93% lean ground turkey
or2 tablespoons canola mayonnaise
or2 teaspoons unsalted ketchup
or1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
or4 Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wraps, Mission
or4 Bibb lettuce leaves
or4 (1/4-inch-thick) slices tomato
or4 (1/4-inch-thick) slices red onion
To prepare burgers, place cremini and button mushrooms in the bowl of a food processor; pulse 4 to 5 times or until coarsely chopped. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Add mushrooms, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to pan; cook 7 to 10 minutes or until liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally. Remove pan from heat; cool mushroom mixture completely.
Place beef in a bowl. Add mushroom mixture to beef; stir just until combined. Refrigerate 10 minutes. Shape beef mixture into 4 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
Combine mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Spread mayonnaise mixture evenly on bun or gluten free tortilla. Top evenly with patties, lettuce, tomato, onion, and top halves of buns.
