Vegan Texas Toast Garlic Bread Double Cheeseburger
Updated: May 21
Texas Toast slathered in Garlic Butter, Onion Straws, BBQ Sauce, Spicy Ranch, and two Vegan Cheeseburgers! This is one beast of a burger!
This is without hyperbole one of the best burgers I've ever made and I think it's in large part due to the fact that every ingredient is a star. I mean, even if this were served on a normal burger bun it would be fantastic, but it's totally leveled up with the Garlic Bread Texas Toast!
And if you can't find Texas Toast, I think sourdough or even ciabatta work work great too! For the onion straws, you just want to make sure you cut them thinner than normal onion rings.
I personally like making extra garlic butter and spicy ranch, and I think you should too! In fact, I made extra onion straws as well! If you don't want to make them from scratch you could totally just use the storebought crispy onion things I bet.
I only made one burger with this recipe, but since there's lots of leftover condiments and onion straws you could easily make 2-4 burgers. Do what you want!
And here's a handy dandy video too!

(makes 1 burger with leftover condiments and onion straws)
Two (3-4 oz) plant based meat patties
2 slices vegan American or cheddar cheese
Oil for frying
100 grams Vegan Butter
1 - 2 Tbsp chopped parsley
4 cloves minced garlic
Spicy Ranch (Quick and Easy)
Hot Sauce (I used Texas Pete)
If you want to make from scratch, you can use this recipe as well:
Spicy Ranch (from scratch)
1/4 cup unsweetened plant milk
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup vegan sour cream
1/4 cup vegan mayo
2-3 tsp vinegar or lemon juice (or pickled jalapeno brine)
1/2 tsp dried dill
1/2 tsp cilantro
1/2 tsp dried chives
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
dash of MSG
Salt & pepper to taste
Cayenne to taste
About 180 grams worth of sliced onions
1 cup Plant Milk (unsweetened)
1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tbsp Hot Sauce
1/2 cup Flour
1/2 cup Cornstarch
Seasoning (or to taste)
Combine ingredients for the garlic butter and set aside. You want the butter to be softened when you spread it on the Texas toast. If you need to you can also microwave it in 5 second increments until it's softened.
To make the Spicy Ranch, just combine as much Ranch as you like with as much hot sauce as youlike. I did about 2:1 of Ranch to Hot Sauce.
Thinly slice your onion with a mandolin or sharp knife.
Combine the ingredients for the wet batter in a bowl, then add your sliced onions and make sure they are nice and coated in the vegan buttermilk.
Combine the ingredients for the dry batter. Remove onions form buttermilk, shaking off the excess, then add them to the dry batter, and coat thoroughly.
In a wide skillet, heat up some peanut, vegetable or canola oil to 350 F. Then carefully add in your dredged onion slices in batches so you don't overcrowd the pan. Once they are fried golden brown, remove and add to a wire rack and salt immediately. Repeat until all your onions are done.
Spread some of the garlic butter on your Texas Toast and add them to a cold pan. Turn your heat to medium low and grill the Garlic Bread until well browned. Then flip and dry toast the other side of the bread. Set aside.
Form your patties or smash them if you like, either way cook them over medium heat for about 3 minutes per side. When you flip them, add a slice of vegan cheese to each patty, then a little water to the pan, cover and steam to melt.
Once cheese is melted, assemble burger as follows from bottom to top: Toast, Spicy Ranch, Double Cheeseburgers, Onion Straws, BBQ Sauce, top Toast.
