2 Beyond Meat Sausages thawed (these come in a 4 pack)
1 package Burger Buns (I used Schar Gluten Free brand)
1/2 Large onion sliced into strips
1 cubanelle pepper sliced into strips
1/2 green pepper sliced into strips
Yellow or Dijon Mustard (optional )
Salt & Pepper to taste
Slice the vegan sausages lengthwise and then in half so you have 4 short halves and then flip them flat side down into a skillet over medium heat. If you’ve never cooked with this brand of vegan sausage before you don’t need to add any oil to the pan, they release plenty on their own that will assist in cooking the peppers and onions as well. Add in the peppers and onions sprinkling them around the sausage. Sprinkle the mixture with The Garlic & The Glory spice blend and toss the peppers and onions but let the sausage cook for a few minutes on each side to brown. Add salt and pepper to taste. While this is all cooking, mix up your chipotle mayo spread.
Garlic Chipotle Mayo Ingredients
6 Tbl Vegan Mayo (I use Follow Your Heart brand Vegenaise)
2-3 tsp Chipotle sauce (this is a local sauce I pick up at Clyde’s Cider Mill Farm Store but any chipotle sauce will do, OR you can substitute for 1/4-1/2 tsp chipotle powder, and 1 tsp apple cider vinigar and a dash of maple syrup)
1/2 tsp The Garlic & The Glory spice blend (you can certainly add more to taste!)
Blend all this up in a small bowl and mix thoroughly.
Assemble & Devour
Once you’ve browned your sausage and softened your onion and pepper mixture it’s time to eat! I prefer to lightly butter (I use Miyoko’s Cultured Vegan Butter) and pan toast the buns before assembling. It adds a hint of salt and crunch (like a good old grilled cheese bread layer) but you can skip this step if you are too hungry to wait! Slather the bottom of each bun with a generous does of Chipotle Garlic Mayo and if you’re a mustard lover spread some of your favorite mustard on the top half. Dress the bottom half with 2 of your sausage slices and a clump of onions and peppers, yes this will look like it will be hard to eat and it WILL, it’s messy and delicious as it should be! Plate and enjoy!
