So, maybe your boyfriend (or girlfriend) is really good at making burgers. I mean REALLY good at making burgers. And maybe that significant other gets kind of upset when you suggest that you want to make homemade veggie burgers.
“WHYYYYYY?? ISN’T THAT SOMETHING YOU CAN DO WITH CRAFSTINE?????”
Well, I didn’t do it with Crafstine because she’s busy working on her final grad paper (I should be too, but instead I’m making veggie burgers….hahahahahaa….wahhh….) but the boyf is gone for the weekend, so I had the opportunity to make them without him whining every second about how I’ll never want to eat one of his burgers again (I do!!!!).
I got this recipe from 101 Cookbooks. I made a few changes, however. I left out the sprouts and the lemon zest (because I didn’t have them) and added a piiiinch of cayenne. I’ll add more next time, because I didn’t really get a kick. Those were the only changes I made, and I followed the cooking procedure to a T.
Not shown: breadcrumbs, eggs, and toppings. I added guacamole, tomato, and bacon.
I was also hungry so I made the patties much bigger. I got 8 patties out of the mixture, since I made them bigger. And I didn’t have bread either! So I used two patties as bread and put the “toppings” in the middle. ….I’m a fatty? I was hungry!!!
I highly recommend Heidi’s recipe for these burgers. They were delicious, although a bit messy, but isn’t that the fun of eating? You know, like chicken wings.
