When my friend Megan came over and showed me an extremely easy to make meat-less burger, I fell in love. Now if you know me, you know I don't do well with following recipes (funny that that is the case, yet I am sitting here writing you all of my "recipes.") I guess it's a good thing, because then I come up with some fun twists and turns. That being said, this burger I made is a twist on what Megan and I made. With some ingredients essentially the same, some completely different. Thats what makes this FUN, right?

Needless to say, this burger is an absolute must. Its such a staple in my dinners now and I love it. I am obsessed with coming up with fun and new recipes to enjoy with the ones I love. Plus, I know my boyfriend would get extremely tired of my usual potatoes for dinner every night. Time to switch it up!
