I just made the bacon cheeseburgers. I liked them and the peanut butter was a nice touch, but they came out a little on the sweet side. I'm not sure whether it's my palate or the barbecue sauce I used (the pineapple one from Carribean Vegan, since that's what I happened to have in the fridge), although I did cut it with a little tomato paste.

We're having the bacon cheeseburgers on Tuesday and I can't wait! My husband made the basic white buns today in preparation and they look super good.

I made the bacon cheeseburgers this weekend. I wound up baking them and then pan-frying them. Loved them! I made the agave buns, and was so happy that they turned out! I have never tried to make buns before. I served them with Mango BBQ Beans from AFR.

Hello!

I recently got this cookbook and I'm wondering what you all recommend? With so many options I am having a hard time deciding what I should try first. I'd like something simple, and relative non-time consuming. Any suggestions?

Agave wheat buns are a must. Lots of suggestions for burgers throughout this thread I think.

I liked the bacon cheeseburgers, but when I plugged them into a calorie calculator it said they contained about 650 calories a piece! Haha. I know, nothing called a bacon cheeseburger should be assumed to be decently healthy... Anyway, when I reheated leftovers I simply split the burgers like bagels and they were still plenty thick enough to enjoy on a bun. They're really good, but I'd probably use a less sweet barbecue sauce next time I make them since you add in a fair amount of maple syrup.

I made 6 burgers from the recipe instead of 4, I prefer my burgers to be smaller. And I only used 2T of oil instead of 1/2 c. Now I am really glad I did all that! 650 is way too many calories!

Yeah, glad I read this thread because I ended up cutting the oil to 2 Tbsp and making 6 out of that recipe, too. They were still huge! Super great, too.

They reheat very nicely too. I decided to cook all of them at the same time and hoped that they would hold up in reheating. If possible, I think they tasted even better!

The Really Meaty Burgers are super awesome! Great flavor, and they held up really well.

I have to share what happened yesterday. I was with my mom and my godmother at a party yesterday. My mom was telling my godmother about how I made the bacon cheeseburger for her and how delicious it was. My godmother said "Welllll, I could probably eat it if I didn't watch it get made." I looked her right in the eye and calmly said "The same argument could be made for the bacon cheeseburgers that you make, right?" I mean, come on!

HA. Seriously. How are vital wheat gluten and TVP too scary to watch being mixed together?

Old thread, I know, but...

I just picked up this book. Any recipe which instructs me to slice off a piece of ham-flavored seitan to chew on while I prepare the rest of the recipe is alright with me. Amen.

I can't for the life of me pick a burger to start with! Suggestions? I have lots of tofu and wheat gluten, but no tempeh or TVP.

What did I do wrong?! The bacon cheeseburgers were too sweet for my taste : (

Mine were really sweet, too! They were good, but not bacon cheeseburgery to me. Next time I'm going to leave out that 1/4 cup of sweetener (can't remember if it's agave or maple syrup).

It's maple syrup!
I was thinking of leaving that out, too, but I don't know what would be a nice substitution. A little water or veg broth to moisten the dough, maybe?

I halved the maple syrup when I made them and just replaced it with water. They came out well. Broth might give it extra flavor though.

i bought this book for my girlfriend for her birthday last week and she's cooking from it for us tomorrow night, but she just told me she can't decide what burgers to make! i'm pretty excited regardless because when i browsed through it at her house after i'd given it to her, i failed to see a single recipe that didn't make me drool with anticipation!

I made a batch of burgers this morning that came out delicious! I don't have the book in front of me right now for the exact name so I don't know how helpful this is but the ingredients were chickpeas, roasted red pepper, tahini, garlic,lemon juice,sesame oil, chickpea flour. The intro of the recipe says that it was one based on a tester's (Liz's??) favorite burger from a restaurant and Joni tried to recreate it. I followed the recipe exactly EXCEPT used far less flour than called for. I threw in some protein powder too for some extra protein.

I already posted here about it but the mayo is super easy to make and tasty...

This might have been asked before, but I just don't have the time to go through the entire thread:
Is it possible to use small granulated TVP instead of the bigger granules for the bacon cheeseburgers?

Ok, so I just made the bacon cheeseburgers for lunch (half a batch, made 3 huuuge burgers), and I liked them! I used 3/4 tvp granules (smallish chunks) and 1/4 tvp mince, and the texture was great. The taste was good too, but I didn't find them tasting a lot of bacon. I would probably add a little bit more liquid smoke and salt next time, but there will certainly be a next time!
