5 stars from 4 ratings of Vegetarian Patty

Burger is a quick meal, and if we plan out the ingredients well, it can become a complete meal with just the right amount of everything.


The term hamburger was derived from Hamburg, Germany, and it immigrated to the United States. However, the term burger is associated with many different types of sandwiches, which has a patty that originates from different animals such as ground beef, lamb, salmon burger or veggie burger.

Burgers are usually considered fast food, picnic or party food, and are usually cooked outdoors on grills, and are served in leading fast food restaurants where the patty is frozen and delivered to various restaurants chains. The restaurants then usually grill on a flat top or use a gas flame grilling process to thaw the frozen patty and serve their customers.

McDonald’s fast food chain has the highest sales of about 550 million Big Mac’s sold annually in the United States. Other fast food chains, include Burger King, A&W, Culver’s, Jack in a Box, Five Guys, In-N-Out Burger and many others.

      We try to eat a veggie burger at least a couple of times per month. We have yet to make our own, but I am going to suggest your recipe for the next meal. Thanks for the idea and the history of the burger.

      Ruchira, this sounds great. I'm printing and going to try it. I'll bet there's all kinds of variations to come up with using different herbs and spices.

      These look fantastic! And nice simple ingredients. The ones in the store always have so much "junk" in them. These are perfect for me.... I use lettuce for a bun :)

      I'm here to support you my friend, but there is no way this boy is eating a veggie burger. LOL There are some compromises to my health that I am not willing to do. :) Have a great weekend.

      An interesting combination of ingredients for your vegetarian patty. I shall try this one out as I am vegetarian and it does sound nice with the mashed potato. I imagine meat eaters would accept this one.
