Veggie Burger Fixins, Toppings?!?

I’ve been trying to get into eating veggie burgers at home. I’ve found a few brands I like and I’ve been eating them on sandwich rounds and there’s just something missing. Lettuce and tomato and onion is just now doing it for me. I’m going with a honey mustard and light mayo too and it’s not hitting the spot. What do you put on your veggie burger? What makes it sing?

    Do you want to avoid cheese?

      I’m not avoiding cheese but I’ve found my standbys for sandwiches (muenster, swiss) aren’t really doing the job either. I had a great veggie burger at Mariposa Bakery in Cambridge with gouda and it was wonderful. I just bought some gouda but haven’t tried it yet. Do you have cheese suggestions?

          gruyere with caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms… or jarlsberg alternatively.

            If you like spicy, I’ve recently fallen in love with a habanero jack. Soooo much more kick than pepper jack!

          I always put barbecue sauce and cheese on the bun. If I’ve got time, I’ll also add very-grilled vegetables like red bell peppers, zucchini and red onions.

            I love hot grilled portobello mushrooms slathered with a spicy and sweet bbq sauce then grilled again. The hot mushroom’s juices flow into the charred bbq sauce and it’s awesome.

            I also like making a vegan pesto and slathering that onto my mushroom burgers. I really do like them mushroom burgers. They’re just so good.

            How about a great coleslaw with lots of shallot, fennel, cider vinegar and a little heat. Tossed with some may it can give a great crunch.

              I like spicy sweet stuff like hoisin sauce or chutney. Or those bright red spicy chopped onions that come in Indian buffets. Pickle relish? Plum sauce?

              Try carmelized onions. Onion jam. Blue cheese and arugula.

                I like cole slaw as well. Crunch is precisely whats missing from veggie burgers.
                Sometimes I will add sliced pickles and radicchio.

                Try cubing and cooking it , then stuffing into a pita with tahini and/or hummus, chopped red onion, cucumber and tomatoes, and parsley.

                  Wow that sounds really good. Do you have a particular brand or recipe for the veggie burger you use for that?

                    i kind of used to like Morningstar.

                    my personal method is often:
                    2 cups cooked barley
                    1 cup diced wild mushrooms (if you use dried, i like to let the moisture from the onions rehydrate them in the saute pan)
                    1/2 cup almost pureed onions
                    1-2 cloves garlic, finely diced
                    1 egg
                    1 cup ricotta
                    1 cup mozzarella or provolone
                    1/4 c parsley
                    1/4 – 1/2 c almond meal, sometimes more or less

                    saute pureed onion and garlic, just to take the bite off. mix everything together except the barley. then mix in the barley. the patties are sort of loose, and you can adjust the almond meal to a consistency you like. then just do em up in a pan, or in the oven at 375, and carefully flip them once.
