Time for something a little more healthy!
(we can't live off sweets alone)
I made this burger using a can of meatless Vegeburger from Cedar Lake. It's vegan so no meat and much healthier then many options.
1 can Cedar Lake Vegeburger
1 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/3 cup ketchup
1/3 cup BBQ sauce
1 Tbsp ranch dressing mix
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp dehydrated onions
A dash of garlic powder and salt
Many of the seasonings are a taste preference but it's a good place to hide the immunity boosting onions and garlic.
I mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, by hand or by fork.
While I'm mixing I have a frying pan warming up on medium heat.
Shape the mixture into a patty and remember that is the shape and size you will end up with. (it doesn't shrink like ground beef) I usually get 5 large patties, however, if made closer to normal size it would probably end up making something like 7 or 8 burgers.
Cook on medium heat for a few minutes on each side. Since the Vegeburger is precooked, you are just heating, not having to worry about reaching a specific temperature.
You may need a little vegetable oil in the pan to help keep the burgers from sticking and burning.
Dress your burger to your tastes and enjoy a very moist and healthier burger!
