    Where do we post for veggie burgers? :)

    My vegetarian daughter is coming home in a few weeks, so I want to give her a mushroom burger option. Any one had any success with a recipe they can share? Any other vegetarian BBQ recipes are welcome too.

    Thx

      The other two premade ones that are getting good reviews are Beyond Burger and Impossible Burger. Their websites list availability. Serious Eats probably has a recipe for a portabella burger.

        I’ve seen these on Whole Foods lately. They actually aren’t bad, but they won’t fool anyone. Be careful not to over cook, they get dry quickly.

        ". . . don't suck too badly." I love it.

        That's what my mother used to call a left handed compliment - like, "she doesn't sweat much for a fat girl." Or more politely - damned by faint praise.

      As EdF mentioned, the Beyond Burgers I’m told are really good. A good friend of mine texted me recently:

      “I dare you to try the Beyond Burgers. Taste like the real thing. Beyond is like voodoo, I was like this is beef.”

      Haven't yet tried them myself, but I will.

        I’ve had a hard time believing they tasted the same Polarbear777 Still wanna try them, I’m not a huge turkey burger fan, and SWMBO has made a major diet change since January. Hoping they’re an acceptable alternative for both of us!

        I've had Beyond Burgers at A&W. Seemed fine it was so covered in ketchup/mayo/mustard and stuff, I have no idea what the burger itself actually tasted like. I am going to see if Whole Foods up here carries them. They would be a big hit for the family get together.

        To be clear the don’t taste like turkey. Just not what you expected. Kind of like a burger made from some creature you aren’t familiar with. Like I say, they taste good, but I’m skeptical of any claimed health advantage and they aren’t cheap.

      Post veggie burger recipes right here. I find some veggie burgers to be downright great, especially when compared to the over cooked beef burgers served by the likes of Chili’s or Applebee’s, where I always go veggie. Veggie burgers are often much moister and more flavorful than the typical chain restaurant burger. I do tend to avoid those that claim to “taste like meat”. Go for a good black bean burger via a Google search for one from ATK, Cooks Illustrated, or Serious Eats.

          No rope—not as long as they don’t claim to taste like real burger—compare a Chili’s “burger” to their veggie burger. Which tastes better? NOT which tastes more like (dry) beef?

          I've done a burger where the patty was made with a mix of grated halloumi, grated carrots and an egg. It turned out pretty good.

          You want a 60/40 mix of halloumi/carrots. Grate them using the same grater (hole size). Mix in a bowl with an egg (or two, depending on how large a batch you're making). Add salt, pepper (and other spices if you like).

          Fry them on the griddle, or in a frying pan on the grill. If you are placing them directly on the grates, use a so called frog mat so they will firm up without sticking to or falling through the grates.

          Start with the bottom half of the bun, and:
          1. spread some sriracha mayonnaise on the bun
          2. Add avocado slices
          3. Add rocket salad
          4. Add some chopped sundried tomatoes (the ones that are stored in a jar in oil, not the fully dried stuff)
          5. Add the burger
          6. Add some roasted pumpkin seeds
          7. Add pickled red onion
          8. Seal it with the top bun

          Note: I assume your daughter is vegetarian, not vegan. Hence the suggestion to use halloumi.

        If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

        the good one grill
        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

        Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

        Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
