Hand-form these juicy and versatile burgers to make anything from sliders up to monster burgers. Of course these are great with no additions, but because you add your own liquid, you have many options to give them your own special touch. Here is the basic recipe, followed by just a few of our favourite add-ons for a memorable meatless burger night. Take your burgers right out of the freezer and onto the grill, where your sizzling creations will emerge perfectly seared on the outside and still juicy on the inside.

Ingredients

 
1pkg       (150g) HotHuck’s Veggie Burger
1¾ c        (420ml) boiling Water or low salt vegetable stock

Option: diced onion, green, red peppers and herbs

Preparation

Add boiling water to veggie burger and optional herbs if using, mix well, cover and allow to rest in refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight, the mixture will thicken considerably. To make veggie burgers divide mixture into 6 balls and shape into patties. For veggie burger balls divide into 36 1” balls with the aide of a teaspoon. Place on cookie sheet and cover, freeze until firm or needed.
