- Slice the mushrooms and sauté them in olive oil for 5 minutes in a pan over medium heat.

- Shape the meat into 4 patties.
- When the barbecue is hot, start to cook the patties and bacon.
- Meanwhile, cut the tomato into thin slices.
- Add the truffle puree to the mushrooms in the pan and mix well.
- When the meat is almost done, put the burger buns on the grill, with a cheese slice(optional) on the bottom half. This will warm the buns and melt the cheese.
