Combo Beef and Portabella Burgers

In lieu of my healthy tip for the week, this week is healthy recipe Wednesday! In an effort to combine the vegan portabella mushroom burger, with a standard burger I have created the combo beef and portabella burger. After a few variations on this recipe I think I finally have it down. These burgers are just slightly more crumbly than a normal burger, but are incredibly moist and delicious. Would love to hear from those of you who try it, with any comments or suggestions.
