Crazy Mix Veggie Burgers

Makes 4 serving(s)

WHAT'S IN IT?

Pick 5 of these 10 "Crazy Mix" ingredients:
   1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
   1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
   1 cup finely chopped fresh spinach
   1 cup finely chopped or shredded lettuce
   3/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
   1/2 cup shredded carrot
   1/4 cup sliced pickles
   1/4 cup ketchup
   1/4 cup light mayonnaise
   2 tablespoons mustard
4 large tomato slices
4 whole-wheat hamburger buns
4 frozen veggie burgers, prepared according to package directions

STUFF YOU NEED

Cutting board
Cutting knife
Dry measuring cups
Measuring spoons (if needed)
Cheese shredder (if needed)
Medium-size mixing bowl
Large spoon
Toaster (or other kitchen utensils based on veggie burger package directions)

HOW TO PUT IT TOGETHER

  1. Pick 5 of the 10 "Crazy Mix" ingredients that you like best. Prepare each of the 5 ingredients and measure them out.
  2. Dump all the measured ingredients into a medium-size mixing bowl. Slop them all together with a large spoon. Set the bowl aside while preparing the rest of the Crazy Mix Veggie Burger.
  3. On the cutting board, slice a large tomato into four 1/2-inch-thick slices. Place each tomato slice on the bottom halves of the 4 buns.
  4. Cook the veggie burgers according to the package directions. Some veggie burgers can be prepared simply in the toaster. When the package suggests you can use a toaster, it usually takes just 5 to 6 minutes to toast each frozen veggie burger patty.
  5. Place each cooked veggie burger on top of each of the four slices of tomatoes. Then, plop the "Crazy Mix" evenly onto each of the veggie burgers.
  6. Top with the bun tops! Go crazy—take a big bite!
