Debbie’s tips

Baking is my favorite way to prepare these burgers because they become crisp on the outside juicy on the inside and they hold their shape beautifully.
The frying pan method is best on the first day. The burger batter will become more watery the second and third day.

Serving suggestions

Sriracha and Vegenaise mayo is a favorite veggie burger sauce in our house. In a small bowl blend mayo with desired Sriracha sauce and do a taste test. Smear your burger and add your favorite toppings such as onions, lettuce, tomato and bread.
These are also great on your favorite green lettuce salad!
