I am SO happy to tell you that Gardein’s new ultimate beefless burgers are finally available! I can finally make tasty “steak” sandwiches of my very own just like the fancy vegan restaurants! They did not disappoint! This sandwich combines two of their delicious patties to make one delicious, protein packed, flavorful sandwich smothered in melty Daiya cheddar and topped with a yummy chipotle thousand island style sauce of my own creation. I was going to make AFR’s OMG baked onion rings, but we were too hungry to wait!
Ty’s Chipotle Island Dressing
(More than enough for 2-4 melts!)
1/4 c. vegan mayo (hello Vegenaise!)
2 tbsp. organic ketchup
2 tbsp. pickle relish
1 tbsp. adobe sauce from chipotle pepper can (for extra kick, mince a miniscule amount of a pepper.)
Combine all ingredients really well in a large ramekin. (I used a fork!)
Burger Melt w/Daiya cheddar and Chipotle Island Dressing
Makes two doubles or four singles.
1 package Gardein Ultimate Beefless Burgers
4-8 pieces of bread, I used sprouted grain
Daiya cheddar vegan cheese shreds
above recipe for Chipotle Island Dressing
1. Spray a large skillet with a little olive oil and raise to medium heat. Add burgers to hot skillet and brown on both sides. This takes about 4-5 minutes on each side.
2. Meanwhile, arrange bread slices on plates. Cover all pieces with Daiya cheddar. Toast in toaster oven as desired, and then Broil until cheese is melty. Return to plates.
3. Drizzle cheesy bread with sauce, add burgers, and assemble. Cut diagonally and serve with additional sauce and accoutrement as desired.
