I love burgers. Beef and veggie alike.
The gourmet burger trend in Toronto is booming at the moment too, which is awesome.
At home, if you take the time to make a homemade beef burger, you’ll almost always get a better end product than what you would find frozen in a box.
And while pre made veggie burgers can taste pretty good, they’re not necessarily a healthy option and they often contain a ridiculously long list of ingredients (many of which are hard to pronounce).
I was actually spending the afternoon testing several batches of oven baked sweet potato fries when I found this quick and easy recipe online. I thought it would be a good compliment to my fries, which I planned on posting about for the blog.
Thing is, the fries were…well, not good. I trialled several recipes all guaranteed to be healthy and crispy. I think I’m coming around to the idea that good fries just need to be fried. And I’m fine with it.
The burgers though.
Big asian inspired flavour and a satisfying texture using a few simple ingredients. In hindsight, I’m glad I took photos. My toppings of choice for this burger were avocado, mango salsa (atulfo mango, red onion, parsley, lime juice & salt), and sriracha mayo (mayo & sriracha). All on a sesame egg bun. A big crunchy piece of lettuce would have been a perfect addition if I’d had some.
