My whole meat-loving family is crazy about these plant-based burgers. When I grilled these up for the fam last weekend, I didn’t tell them that these were not beef burgers. They gobbled them up and loved them. When I finally let them in on the secret, my husband said “these are the best veggie burgers I’ve ever eaten”. And I’m not usually one to title recipes as “Best” or “Epic”, but after my family’s response, I just couldn’t resist.

How To Make The Best Plant-Based Burgers:

Thanks to Sweet Earth Awesome Burgers, this recipe is a breeze! You can grill these burgers or cook them in a skillet on the stove. I chose the skillet for the photos, but as I mentioned above, they’re fabulous cooked on the grill too.

Start off by thawing your burger. Once thawed, to cook on the stovetop, heat a pan on medium-high. Add 1 tsp. olive oil. When hot, pan fry the patty for 4 minutes, flip and reduce heat to medium-low, pan fry for 3 minutes. Flip and fry for 1 minute more, or until you reach an internal temperature of 160ºF. A pink to warm-red center is normal when “done” thanks to the plant-based ingredients.

You can find instructions for grilling your burger below and it’s also conveniently located on the Awesome Burger packaging.

Of course, adding cheese is optional. I like topping my burger with cheese while it’s still cooking, so the cheese gets all melty. Just look at that burger. I can’t wait to dig in!

Load these burgers up however you like – I like mine with avocado, red onion, tomato, lettuce, pepper jack cheese and mayo. The kids enjoyed there’s with ketchup and mustard. The options are pretty much endless!

As far as sides go, these are wonderful alongside potato chips, corn on the cob, broccoli salad, or crispy sweet potato fries .
