Burger and fries

I used to work in my parents’ convenience store, and I flipped many a burger. I’d like to think I’m pretty good at it. By far my most popular item, back in the old days, was a burger with grilled onions and mushrooms, with a toasted bun.

I’ve been craving a veggie burger since Thursday, and when I realized I had a vegan Boca Burger in the freezer, and a whole potato waiting for its destiny, I decided to make my own burger while waiting for the football game to start.

My new mandoline made perfect fries – so exciting! It took all of 30 seconds to transform the potato into these uniform, expertly-sliced fries. Goodbye sore wrists and hours of potato cutting!

I don’t think I really need to give you a recipe, since I am using a pre-made burger, but for the toppings, I used leftover pecan pesto, a little spinach, both mayo and mustard, pan fried mushrooms, and caramelized onions. Yes. Oh, yes.

Of course, to treat myself for game day, I also had a Dr Pepper. What a perfect Saturday Night! Texas Fight!

  1. That is one of my favorite dinners right there: a giant burger with all the fixins, TONS of vegan mayo, and super salty crispy fries. You've got me SO hungry and I just ate dinner! Think I need to put veggie burgers on my shopping list for tomorrow…

  2. Yeah, that's the new Clay Pit spinoff, right? I probably won't ever get all the way down there, especially since Clay Pit is literally two blocks from my house.

    Mmm, samosas.
