Vegan Bacon Cheese Burgers
I put off doing my taxes until the last minute, so I didn’t exactly have time to cook. Enter the frozen veggie burger. I wouldn’t normally blog about a frozen burger, but uh, add enough stuff to it and it’s worth talking about. When we buy frozen burgers, we always buy Gardein. They are hands-down the best veggie burgers in stores. We had some Fakin' Bacon tempeh bacon in the fridge, so I decided to make vegan bacon cheeseburgers. We used Daiya cheese – I had cheddar and Seth had Jack. We both dressed ours up a little differently – Seth had Vegenaise and mustard on his. I went all in and had chipotle BBQ sauce and ranch dressing on mine. (We love the ranch recipe in Cookin’ Crunk.) I love the spicy sauce with the cool ranch, the smoky tempeh, and tangy cheddar. Of course, they got topped with lettuce, tomato and red onion. We rounded it out with frozen onion rings and fries and a side salad. Comfort food for the weary taxpayer. I’d rate this dinner higher, but, you know, it’s all processed food so it doesn’t really count.
