My burgers have been some of my most popular recipes. First, there was the Buffalo Cauliflower Wing Burger. Then came the Guacamole Bacon Burger. Let’s not forget the Sriracha Peanut Burger. Well, I’ve got a 4th burger for you all: the vegan mac n cheese burger!
I’ve got to say, this might be one of my favorites so far. Nah, that’s not true. They’re all my favorites! Still, this burger is special to me. It’s probably not for everyone, but it tastes surprisingly amazing!
This burger is different in the fact that I use a store bought veggie burger.
WHAT??? This is a healthy vegan blog. How in my right mine could I use mock meat?
Well, here’s why: I think that it tastes best with this particular recipe.
I tested 3-4 burger recipes, and none of them were working. Matthew had the idea to use a Beyond Meat patty, and I tried that and loved it.
My mac n cheese recipe is completely homemade, but the burger isn’t. Honestly, I am ok with that.
This burger recipe took half the time that my other recipes take. Plus, it tastes amazing! It tastes so real to me!
Going back to mock meat: some bloggers use it. Some don’t. That is completely fine. Personally, I try not to use it all the time. I prefer to be a bit more creative and try to think of ways to make everything homemade. I am not perfect at this, but I do make an effort. It’s fun to get creative and have a staple recipe for everything. However, I never make my blog a processed food-free zone. Every now and then, I rely on mock meat because it 1. usually tastes good and 2. As of now, I can’t make something better (but I always try to keep testing).
Mock meat isn’t the worst thing in the world. No, I will not use it all the time in my recipes. However, sometimes, it just works. If you have a homemade recipe you’d rather use, you always can. If you don’t mind using some mock meat, I highly recommend it for this particular recipe. I love the Beyond Meat brand. It has great flavor, and combined with mac n cheese, tastes absolutely irresistible. Hello, game day!
Whether you take my advice and use a store bought patty or make your own, I hope you like my take on a vegan mac n cheese burger. When I say that this is one of my favorites, I’m not lying! Every recipe has a special place in my heart, but this is definitely up there.
