Dees Vegan Traditional Sausage “Burger” with Slow Cooked Caramelised Maple Onions

29 Jun


My friends and I would always make a luscious vegan ‘sausage’ burger packed with lots of onion and on a yummy toasted bun, whenever we would BBQ. I was chatting to them recently about my upcoming visit to see them and we decided we had to make this legendary BBQ treat again!

You will need:
1 packet of Dee’s Vegan Sausages
Seasoning of choice; such as Cajun, herbs, taco, etc.
1 medium onion, sliced
Salt /Pepper
15mls oil
20mls maple syrup
2 seeded or onion burger baps/buns
2 ripe tomatoes
A handful of Baby leaves

Method:
Firstly, heat a small pan with a little oil and add in the onion and some salt/pepper. Cook on low until brown and soft, after about 15 minutes add the maple syrup and cook another 3-4 minutes.

While the onions are cooking, season the sausages. I used 5-7g of Cajun seasoning to sprinkle on top, then cook the sausages according to the instructions on the pack (I grilled mine.)

Next, slice the tomatoes and toast the burger buns.

When everything is ready, place 3-4 tomato slices on the bottom of the bun, then top it with the sausage, onion and baby leaves and top it with the other half of the bun.

Then enjoy with your favourite summer drinks.

 

Top Tips:

You can prep the onion in larger batches and keep them in the fridge for 3-4 days and simply heat up as needed.

You can use all sorts of different types of buns or for the kids, why not use a cookie cutter to cut out a fun shape of toasted bread and use this as the bun.

Enjoy, Eoin.
