the Mid-West Classic gets a VEGAN MAKEOVER!

There's not too much to say about this burger other than it's one of the most simple yet unique burgers I've made!

It hails from a place called Swenson's in Ohio, and it's got two Special Sauces, and on top of that we are mixing in some brown sugar with our plant-based meat. It sounds weird I know, but it totally works! The sugar gets caramelized and there's a wonderful sweet and salty flavor to it.

The two sauces are basically a BBQ sauce and a Tartar Sauce, which again, sounds like a weird combo, but I totally dug it!

This recipe is adapted from this ONE HERE!

Here's a video for the Burger!

Makes 1 Burger

  • 6 oz plant-based meat (divided into two 3 oz patties)

  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar

  • 1 Burger Bun

  • 1 slice of vegan cheese

  • 1 cocktail olive

Special Sauce #1

  • 2 Tbsp vegan mayo

  • 1 Tbsp dill relish

  • 1 Tbsp minced onion

  • Pinch of salt

Special Sauce #2

  • 2 Tbsp chili sauce (like Heinz)

  • 1 tsp molasses

  • Splash of liquid smoke

  • Splash of maple syrup

  • 1 tsp minced onions


  1. Make the two special sauces by combining their respective ingredients. Store in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

  2. Combine the plant-based meat and brown sugar.

  3. Over medium heat, grill your buns in some vegan butter or vegan mayo.

  4. Form your burger patties and grill them for 2-3 minutes, then flip. Repeat this 4 times! This will help the brown sugar caramelize.

  5. After you flip your patties 4 times, add a slice of vegan cheese to one, cover to melt.

  6. Assemble burger as pictured and ENJOY!
