Lunch has always been my favorite meal of the day, the delicious simplicity appeals to my tastes. And yet, I realized that I have never posted some of my favorite things to eat for lunch. Or anything in the lunch category at all! So I decided that it was about time to post a series of my favorite lunch foods. The Vegetarian Cheeseburger is something that I only indulge in on a special occasion. Okay okay maybe I eat it once a week or so. But that’s all I’m going to say about that. Now that we are in Kroger territory I have enjoyed getting to know the type of food they carry and how I can transform it into greatness. Let me just say, the bread is SO good. Especially the potato buns, so if you want to enjoy this lunchtime delight to the fullest, I recommend using one of those little babies to carry your burger to greatness. We have always eaten soy based burgers, I know, healthy right? But once you develop a taste for them, they are so good. This episode of Delicious Food 101 features The Chef and Friar Tyst.
What ya need: 1 potato hamburger bun, 1 soy burger (any flavor, we like the Boca and Morning Star brands), 1-2 tbsp. three cheese ranch dressing, 1/2 tsp. mustard, 1 slice of tomato, 2-3 pieces of lettuce, 1 slice of cheese.
Microwave the burger for one minute or grill it on the stove top for 3 to 5 minutes. Toast the potato bun in the same grill pan with a little butter (this step is optional). Spread the dressing on both sides of the bun. Layer the burger, the mustard, and the cheese in this order. If you have lettuce and tomato, which I did not this time around, put them on now with top half of the bun. Now the most important step, enjoy it!
I know I did!
