A great veggie burger is not an easy thing to find.  (Stop rolling your eyes.)  We've really tried, too.  We've flip-flopped between Morning Star and Boca Burgers, and then over to Gardenburgers, with and without black beans, soybeans, peppers, herbs and garlic, and all the way back again.  Several times.  A year.  For the last 5-6 years.

But now, ladies and gentlemen, it looks like we may have actually settled on a real winner (well, at least for now). But it's a triple winner, even.  So,  here's the new monster-approved awesome burgerlicious combo:

  • Morning Star Turk'y Grillers (yes, the apostrophe means it's not really turkey, with an e)
  • Earth Grains Thin Buns (Thank you, Tia Sonia, for leaving these behind and forcing me to try them out rather than throw them out)
  • Fresh Baby Spinach (always always always instead of lettuce)
  • Shredded Mexican cheese ('cause it just melts so much better than slices)
The trick to a great tasting veggie burger is to cook them in a little EVOO on the griddle.  We add a little lemon pepper, garlic salt, and a dash of BBQ sauce to each side, and that's about it.

The kids absolutely inhaled them. (It doesn't hurt if you withhold their afternoon snack that day, too.)  And even asked for seconds.

Give it a shot and let me know how you liked 'em.
