  • Heat the olive oil in the largest saute pan you have over high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the mushroom and onion mixture and allow to cook, stirring occasionally for 10-15 minutes. During the last minute of cooking, add garlic and red pepper, stir to combine, and allow to start turning golden brown and fragrant. Remove mixture from heat and allow to fully cool before combining with other ingredients.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In large bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, grated parmesan, egg, fresh basil, and cooled mushroom mixture. Use hands to thoroughly mix but try not to over work the meat. Shape into 12 evenly sized slider patties.
