Can you make this ahead of time? How would you store it?

This burger bowl can easily be cooked and then assembled at a later time. Simply store the ingredients separately to ensure freshness!

Do you have to use the mayo sauce? Can you use something else?

The mayo sauce really adds something extra, but you can also use something like an avocado sauce or even a chimichurri sauce!

Can you use turkey instead of beef?

For sure! Turkey burger bowls would be perfect for this recipe as well.

Can you mix up the toppings?

Totally! If you don’t like mushrooms, you can easily leave them off. Or if you’d like to add tomato, you can go ahead and add those! You can also add something like cheese if you tolerate it.
