Using a large mixing bowl you will add the hamburger or ground beef, crushed crackers, ½ envelope onion soup mix, milk and egg. Mix with your hands to combine all the ingredients until well blended. Divide this meat mixture evenly into 8 pieces and then roll and shape those 8 pieces into burger patties of about ½ inch in thickness. Flatten the burger patties out a bit after forming them. Saute the burger patties on both sides until they are brown. Set aside until needed.

Using a medium size mixing bowl you will add the remaining ½ envelope onion soup mix, sliced mushrooms, water, flour, basil, oregano and garlic powder.

Allow to boil for about 2 minutes and then reduce the heat to low. Cover with lid and allow the dish to simmer for about 20 minutes, while occasionally stirring to prevent sticking and scorching.

Butter and toast the hamburger buns. Serve the burger patties over the toasted buns while pouring the sauce over each half of the hamburger bun.
