Foodservice Recipe

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons blackening spice
  • 1 teaspoon Art of Bacon, vegan flavoring spice

  • Step 1.

    In a large bowl, combine Hungry Planet Beef™, salt, black pepper, blackening spice, and vegan bacon flavoring. Mix, until well combined. Once mixed, separate beef into 8- 3 ounce balls. To shape beef patties, oil two small pieces of parchment paper. Place meatballs in between two 4 inches by 4-inch pieces of lightly oiled parchment paper. Next, gently, and evenly press down to form a thin patty. Each patty should be about ¼ inch thick and about 3½ inches wide. Once all 8 patties are formed, place patties onto a plate, and place them into the refrigerator for about 10 minutes or until ready to use.

  • Step 2.

    Heat a large frying pan, with about 1 tablespoon of oil, on medium-high heat. Once oil temperature reaches 350℉, fry each patty, until golden brown on each side, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Internal temperature should reach 160℉. Repeat with remaining patties, adding oil as necessary.

  • Step 3.

    To serve, place 2 patties on to bun, and top 1 piece lettuce, a tomato slice, pickles, and 1 tablespoon ketchup and mustard on each.
