I think we’ve all discussed my rather obsessive personality, and we’ve talked about my love for these heavenly cauliflower nuggets.
You guys do the math and you’ll see that the next thing to happen would be another post involving those cauliflower nuggets, now in pattie form… You know, because I didn’t want to be that obsessive. So burgers it is this time!
Next time someone tells you how boring vegetarian food is, just throw one of these monsters at their faces. Some serious damage will happen, that’s for sure. We’re talking about one deadly big burger (like really HUGE) with layers and layers of awesomeness. Should it hit you, it will blow your mind off – literally.
Cheesy cauliflower patties? Check!
Extra cheesy zucchini fritters? Double check!
Crispy spiced beet chips? Yes please!
Roasted vegetables? Absolutely!
Extra cheese? Um, do we need to raise that very question? You bet that some extra gouda is going into these babies.
Babies in a figurative sense, I mean. These are the size of a small country.
And when you thought that life just couldn’t get any more better, all that goodness gets sandwiched between a super fluffy bread bun <<< that’s the moment you’ll want to give up your job and lead a live devoted to monster burger eating.
Not that I’ve been thinking about it.
Truth to be told, I have. Like, in a “let’s start a new cauliflower zucchini fritter and beet chips monster burgers appreciation club” kind of way. We all could meet for tea while we eat our burgers and read books about these burgers singing ol’ country songs about them.
Aaaaaaaand, we may or may not watch some Game of Thrones while we are at it. You know, hot men with beards, swords and veggie burgers? That’s the kind of plan which makes me dance with joy.
So you guys feel free to join my burger appreciation club if you wish.
ps: bring cookies. And tea. And a decent laptop in which we can watch all that GoT. Mine doesn’t work.
ps #2: don’t forget the cookies!
ps #3: danish butter cookies are my fave *wink wink*
ps #4: I’m dead serious: if you don’t bring the cookies you aren’t joining the club.
