Vegetarian Chickpea Burgers have been Mini-Me’d

Just a quick simple post today, a follow-up on a favorite recipe.

I really do love the vegetarian chickpea burger recipe that I shared with you last April. It’s become a staple around here. My only beef (ha ha!) with the recipe is that often when I go to flip the burgers, they fall apart too easily. So, I have to be super careful and gentle…and often still mess them up!

I found the perfect solution! Chickpea Burger Sliders! I mini-me’d the burgers and used mini hamburger buns. They were super duper easy to flip and tasted just as delicious. I had to share that quick tip because I’m downright delighted by the discovery.

I found mini hamburger buns at Trader Joe’s, but given the recent popularity of “sliders,” I’m sure you can find them in other stores as well.

One more thing! I topped these particular burgers with cheddar cheese, sprouts and cucumbers, and a little mayo and mustard. Scrumptious, I say!

    Yummm! What a great idea! Being that I cook for one, have you ever tried freezing these?

      I haven’t tried freezing them, but I kind of think that would work well! There have been times when I haven’t cooked it all in one night, and I keep the leftover “batter” in the fridge and that works…and I really think freezing would be fine! but that’s just me guessing… πŸ™‚

    • I made these the first time you posted, and they did sort of fall apart, but were delicious. I had lots of extra so I froze them, they were just fine reheated. Mini versions, great idea πŸ™‚

    These are on my menu for this week! (Although I think I’m going to try a falafel variation and serve them in pitas. We’ll see how it goes.) Thanks so much for sharing this recipe last spring–we probably had them most weeks throughout the summer πŸ™‚

      I’m so glad you like the recipe – and I think pitas is a GREAT idea! I’ll have to remember that!

    These are totally cute!! And I love the color. I have such a hard time finding mini slider buns, but now I’ll have to check out my local Trader Joe’s… good to know! I do like the pita idea too πŸ™‚
