What kind of sauce do you guys think would go great on a mushroom bacon swiss burger? I'm looking for suggestions for a recipe I'm working with.

That is my favorite combination. On it I tend to do two types of sauce:
1. A ranch dressing with lots of cracked pepper, and my latest fascination,
2. Michael Symon's LOLA Spicy Ketchup, but with about 50% less cumin than his recipe specifies.
But one can never go wrong with a really good Thousand Island dressing.

MaryB you have a good point, it does stand well on its own without sauce but I just thought I would experiment with different flavors. I'm also thinking of making this as a topping for a pizza as well.
That's exactly it Stephen I'm looking to have a little fun with it and experiment with different flavors. I was also telling MaryB above that I'm also looking to make this into a pizza topping as well as a good burger. I made a mushroom bacon swiss burger pizza the other night and I just used pizza sauce. It turned out well and it tasted good but I felt it was missing something so I was thinking about adding another sauce to it like maybe to drizzle over the top of it.
Mushrooms and bacon, and I presume cheese as well? These are very earthy flavors and need a little kick and zest to perk it up. I would go with a sharp mustard sauce myself.
You lost me on the pizza topping.
How did I lose you on that? I was just saying that I've been experimenting with making a pizza with those toppings, kind of like how they have bacon cheeseburger pizzas.
Pesto would be a good idea and I like some of the other suggestions I've seen on here so far. I'm going to be entering into a pizza contest to try and win a thousand bucks and I'm going with a mushroom bacon swiss burger topping for my entry. Also with just a burger, I like the idea of a bourbon BBQ sauce with black garlic, kind of reminds me a little of TGI Fridays JD sauce. Flavor mania going on here ha ha!
The only type 'sauce' I've ever put on any burger is mayo, just a whisper.
The meat is usually juicy enough, I think anyways; also I do not care for a sogged out bun/bread.
I meant that I don't know how to help in terms of making a burger into a pizza. Cheeseburger pizza is so far removed from something that I would eat that my mind can't wrap my brain around the concept. To me pizza is wholesome and artistic, I can't imagine doing that to it.
Oh okay I see what you mean. From your point of view it probably is unorthodox and I respect your opinion, but I've grown up eating stuff like that. My dad made(and still does) a killer hamburger pizza.
My braddah Layne!
I'm so happy that I found this at the 'Asian Market' (I really dislike that term)
here in the middle of the desert.. I thought that we were going to have
to make an emergency trip back home to Hawaii...
