Summer Recipe from the No-Killin-Grillin Section of Don't Eat Me!

Hey Guys - Since it is the height of summer, I thought I'd share a recipe from the No-Killin Grillin section of Don't Eat Me! for you guys to enjoy! This is the best and biggest veggie-burger you will ever make! Easy and fun!

The Big Stack

This is so much better than the poor, cruel excuse for the fast food burger that it rhymes with that I double dare you to make it! You will literally feel yourself evolving as you eat!!! Two no-beef patties, not-so-secret-sauce, lettuce, no-cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun!

8 no-beef patties (recommend Morning Star Farms vegan "grillers")
8 non-dairy American cheese slices (recommend Tofutti brand American style slices)
1 package of 8 sesame seed buns
1/4 of a head iceburg lettuce cut into thin shreds
1 tsp. dried minced onion, re-hydrated with 1 tsp. water for at least ten minutes pior to serving
24 hamburger dill pickle slices

1/2 cup egg-free mayo (recommend Vegenaise)
1 Tbsp. Chinese duck sauce
1/2 tsp. yellow mustard
1 tsp. pickle relish
2 pinches salt

1. Fire up the grill as you would for regular burgers
2. Combine all ingredients for not-so-secret-sauce in a small bowl. Whisk thoroughly and set aside.
3. Defrost no-beef patties until soft. Grill no-beef patties about 3-4 minutes on each side. Place a slice of no-cheese on top of each patty until it starts to melt. Remove to a warming plate.
4. To assemble The Big Stack: spread bottom bun with not-so-secret-sauce. Top with one cheeseburger patty, a sprinkle of minced onions, 3 pickle slices and a small bunch of lettuce shreds. Take another bun bottom (sound kinky) and stack it on top of what you have so far. spread this bottom with sauce and add another patty, onions, pickles and lettuce. Spread top bun with sauce and place on top.
I think you'll be loving it!
