A burger is a must make over for MoFo. I searched for the best burger to Make Over, which led me to the top 10 chain burger places in the U.S. There is the obvious McD's (link is to VegMac), Red Robin (link is to vegan Bruschetta Burger), Burger King and Wendy's. But then the new front runners are In-N-Out Burgers, Five Guys, Culver's and Smashburgers.
At the heart of any burger is the burger itself. Therefore, instead of trying to just make a vegan version of a popular burger from a popular burger joint, I decided to make the burger patty itself as the Make Over.
In past make overs, I have done the VegMac, using Boca burgers sliced in half horizontally...
Thanks to Tami and her Food Network Friday challenges, I gave making burger patties myself a try and have come up with my own great version.
|Mesa Grill Burger|
I have been perfecting this for the past year and am now proud to launch it!
First, I am using the thicker version of the patty in an upscale restaurant burger: Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill's signature cheeseburger, loaded with Daiya, grilled vidalia onion and horseradish-dijon sauce.
Above it is made into thinner patties and is gracing the better version of In-N-Out's Double Double, in which the stacking order is paramount.
That's it for today's "Burgers In and Out of Dives" episode!
