Best Homemade Burgers on Pretzel Bread

Sharing is caring!

If you enjoy a good homemade burger, you are going to love, love, love my Best Homemade Burgers on Pretzel Bread.

When I was shopping at our local Aldi the other day, I ran across a pretzel baguette. I don’t believe I have ever seen these before. I knew I loved the pretzel buns; so I thought this would be worth a shot. I had it for a few days before I decided what to do with it. I love a good homemade burger, but we really do not have them all that often. When we do have homemade burgers, it is generally on the grill, not pan fried stovetop. I knew this pretzel baguette would make the burgers extra-special.

Ingredients Needed:

the ingredients used in this recipe for pretzel burgers

I just love to smell mushrooms and onions sauteing stovetop. They really do make the burgers something special. And the melting Swiss cheese tastes great and helps to glue it all together. I like the extra flavor from sauteing in butter, but you could use olive oil if you prefer.

Sauteed Mushrooms and Onions:

This recipe makes six sandwiches. In order to expedite the preparation, I used a stove-top grill top to toast the sliced pretzel bread. That way, I could grill all 12 pieces of pretzel bread at one time. You could do this in a large skillet, but you would probably have to grill them in two separate batches.

If a good sandwich is on your radar, you cannot beat my Best Homemade Burgers on Pretzel Bread. For another great sandwich, try my Easy Pizza Sub Meatball Italiano. It’s one I will also be making this week. Food & Wine has a post titled Sandwiches where they give sandwich recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Mushrooms and onions tasted great on the cheeseburger, and the pretzel bread was just awesome.
