Happy Grilling Wednesday!! This is the second post for Grilling Wednesday and I hope you're ready for some great grilling recipes from now until the end of August. We have a variety of grilling recipes planned from main dishes to side dishes to desserts.
This recipe is adapted from a recipe from Adventures in Cooking.
Grilling Wednesday Recipes: Grilled Pineapple with Honey, Lime and Cinnamon.
Burgers and Fixings
-1 Small Onion, cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
-5 Pretzel Buns
-5 Leaves of Romaine Lettuce
-5 Slices White Cheddar Cheese
-5 Veggie Burgers (I used pre-made, or you can make your own)
Maple Balsamic Sauce
-1/2 Teaspoon Salt
-1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
-1/2 Cup Ketchup
-6 Teaspoons Balsamic Vinegar
-4 Teaspoons Maple Syrup
|To make the sauce, whisk together all of the listed ingredients, adjusting the seasoning, maple syrup and balsamic vinegar to your preference.|
|Grill your veggie burger, adding the sliced white cheddar during the final minutes in order to get it melted.|
Grill the onion slices until nice grill marks appear. This should be done while the cheese is melting.
|Build your burger, romaine lettuce, then the veggie burger, cheese and sauce.|
|Add the grilled onion.|
This burger was fantastic. I've been raving about it to anyone who will listen, this is about to become my favorite set of burger toppings. The maple balsamic ketchup was the right about of sweet and tangy (the maple gave a subtle sweetness, but the tangy bite of the balsamic was much more prevalent). The pretzel bun was also a nice touch, it was a lot denser than a typical burger bun. If you're looking for a way to jazz up a burger, this is it.
