Eating vegetarian never tasted so good! These burgers are a great alternative to the real thing when prepared with garden-fresh vegetables and a melted layer of Sargento® Sliced Reduced Fat Medium Cheddar Cheese. These burgers can be prepared on a skillet, so they’re great for any time, whether it’s lunch or dinner.
- 1 tsp. canola or olive oil
- 1 small red or yellow bell pepper, cut into short, thin strips
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced red or yellow onion
- 4 frozen meatless (veggie) burgers
- 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
- 4 slices Sargento® Sliced Reduced Fat Medium Cheddar Cheese
- 4 red leaf or romaine lettuce leaves or 1 cup packed watercress sprigs
- 4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split, lightly toasted if desired
- Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bell pepper and onion; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring frequently.
- Meanwhile, heat burgers according to package directions. Brush barbecue sauce over burgers; top with cheese. Continue cooking just until cheese is melted. Place lettuce on bottom of buns; top with burgers, vegetables and bun tops.
