Veggie burgers with an unconventional topping

Veggie burgers with unconventional topping - cheese grits. 

So I mentioned before that when Doug was out of town I used to eat eggplant, something he didn't care for.  Now he likes it so I have veggie burgers.  I love these things!

Trouble was, I forgot we were out of conventional bread so I adapted by using a French loaf I'd baked earlier in the week.  I just toasted the bread and that came out well.  Then I discovered I was out of cheese.  Hmmmmmm.........obviously I did not plan well.

As luck would have it there was a container with leftover cheese grits.  Why not.

Just layer up the toppings I like, loads of tomato.  Oh yeah, we didn't have lettuce either.  We need to go grocery shopping!  the plus side is, it was economical and I cleaned out the fridge.

It's not often I am out of so many key ingredients for a dish but I have to say, once I am home, I don't like running back out unless it's absolutely necessary!  I missed linking up with Deb last Sunday but I wanted to be sure to join in for this week.  Hoping to have a more elegant offering next week :-)

I'm linking up my weird dinner with Deb at Kahakai Kitchen for her Souper Sunday series.  Click HERE to see Deb's Asparagus Soup with Herbed Goat Cheese.  Definitely a classier headliner :-)

I haven't had a veggie burger in a while and now I'm craving one. I got the big eyes and lol'd when I saw you added cheese grits. But then I've made some really weird stuff before and it tasted good.

You didn't say whether you like it or not, or did I miss that part?

Your imagination is obviously quite active! But burger toppings are a challenge to everyone's creativity, and I've seen weirder!

Vicki, I did like it! Since the grits had been in the fridge they were easily mashed into the burger. I would do it again, although I would have preferred a slice of Swiss or cheddar.

Thanks, Mae! We live just far enough away from a grocery store that I wasn’t about to head out for bread and cheese. Poor planning on my part but I can adapt:-)

I think it looks pretty tasty. Great ingenuity! Do you have a favorite brand of veggie burger?

Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week. ;-)

I like veggie burgers okay but I'm not sure I could handle the cheese grits topping! But then I'm not a big grits fan in the first place. It's funny that we have food for when our husbands are away. I'm the exact same way! Right now I'm on a chicken salad kick.

I think anything that tastes good to you will taste good on a burger. I hate when you are making something and realize you don't have all the ingredients. Good save on your part

It's May and it's hot around these parts but that doesn't usually deter me from making soup.  This particular soup has been on ...
