Melt 1 Tbsp. butter in a pan. When it foams, add the mushrooms. Do not move the mushrooms around too much in the pan to allow them to caramelize. Season only when they are cooked.

Cook the mini patties on the barbecue or in the oven.

When you flip the patties, place a slice of cheese on top and let it melt.

Meanwhile, combine the mayonnaise and the smoked paprika.

Spread the mayo on the buns, place the patties and cheese and garnish with the mushrooms and onion sprouts.
