                                  3. Divide beef into 4, (4-ounce) portions and shape each portion into ¼-inch thick patties. Season with a ¼ teaspoon of salt and pepper. Place patties on the sheet pan and set aside. 
                                    4. Spread mushrooms in a separate section from patties. Spray top of mushrooms with non-stick spray and season with ¼ teaspoon of salt and pepper.

                                            8. To make pickles, bring vinegar, water, and ¼ teaspoon of salt to a boil on the stovetop or in the microwave. Pour mixture over cucumbers and set aside.
