Before we dive into burgers, I wanted to give a few updates on the cookbook! My friends have been sharing recipes from the cookbook this week and I think they are hitting it out of the park with these recipes adaptions and photos. So gorgeous! Be sure to check out the recipes:

Socca Pizza with Summer Squash and Feta from Kathryne of Cookie and Kate (GF)
Nut Flour Crepes with Roasted Fruit from Shanna + Tim of Food Loves Writing (GF)
Vanilla Bean Millet Porridge with Lavender Strawberries + Super Seeds from Laura of The First Mess (Vegan + GF)
Sweet Potato and Lentil Gnocchi from Kathryn of London Bakes (GF)

Okay, enough book talk, on to burger business.

When I worked as a waitress my last year of school, I had my one favorite meal: a veg burger with grilled onions on rye bread. It wasn’t anything too complicated but I think it was the combination the rye bread with the grilled onions. I don’t always keep rye bread in the house so my typical version is usually just this brown rice burger topped with a bit of grilled onions, however, if I find a fresh loaf of rye bread, I pick it up and make these patty melts.

I explained in the post about these burgers that they aren’t your no-fuss veg burger and are a bit soft/crumble easier than some other recipes. Yet, the flavor of the oats, brown rice, and nuts is such a winning combination (like in this buffalo ‘crumble’ salad!) And of course, you can’t go wrong grilled onions.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Make burgers as normal. Light grill (with grill pan) or a grill pan on the stove top. Slice onion into 1/8" slices and brush with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil. Grill onions along side burgers until onions are lightly charring. Stack a few rings of onions on the burger and top with sliced cheese. Transfer burger to a low-heat spot on the grill and let sit as cheese melts.
  2. Brush rye bread with remaining 1/2 tablespoon and place on grill. Let bread toast for 1-2 minutes on each side. Assemble burger and devour.
Notes
*alternatively, instead of grilling the onions, use caramelized onions.
