Shape beef into eight thin patties. Combine the cream cheese, bleu cheese and bacon bits; spoon onto the center of four patties. Top with remaining patties and press edges firmly to seal. Combine the salt, garlic powder and pepper; sprinkle over patties.

Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 inches from the heat for 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160°F (71°C) and juices run clear.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute mushrooms in oil until tender. Stir in water and mustard.

Serve burgers on buns with mayonnaise, romaine, tomato and mushroom mixture.
