Beet juice makes these patties red. No blood needed for great flavor!
Erin uses a Beyond Meat burger patty and she uses Chao cheese made by the Field Roast brand. The Beyond Meat burger tastes and appears so much like real meat as the beet juice sizzles out of it, that Erin had to get past her psychological block against meat in order to eat it. Her husband and kids absolutely love these patties! Erin uses Miyokos butter to get her bread nicely toasted. Erin explains that the Chao cheese melts really well and tastes even better than dairy cheese. The Beyond burger has just as much protein as a hamburger made from animal parts.
This looks like the perfect pick-me-up meal any day!
Erin points out that “Veganuary” is here. She urges anyone open to veganism to check out the Veganuary website and try going to plant-based for a month. Who knows it may last longer than that after a person reaps the benefits! The burger patty is done in five minutes and the whole patty melt is done a minute later. Allen Carrasco, Erin’s husband, hops in for the taste test and says that it is very good and tastes “freakishly” like a meat hamburger. You can try making your own vegan patty melt in minutes at home with Erin’s recipe below! Happy New Year Everyone!
