Guest Blogger: Vegan Family Dinner

13 Oct
Meet Courtney Ann Melzer: Creator of the blog Vegan Family Dinner, fiancée to Jared, cat mom to 3 kitties, and hailing from Chicago, IL. Courtney’s favorite hobby is photography. She studied acting in undergraduate school, but is now working on her MAT (Master of art in Teaching) for elementary education.  Currently teaching a Junior high blogging class in an after school program in the Logan Square neighbourhood (Chicago). Let’s see what Courtney has in store for us. Welcome Courtney!
One of my favorite sandwiches is my version of Big Macs.
Although they are quite different than their McDonalds cousin,
do not be tricked… although completely vegan these little
guys are far from healthy.
                                                                          To create the Big Mac, I start by making a recipe of Veggie
out of Vegan with a Vengeance.  It’s
the perfect burger recipe for this sandwich because it makes burgers
that a super thin and crispy.
I also make a batch of Special Sauce because it needs to chill in the
fridge for a bit.
Special Sauce
1/2 cup Vegenaise
2 tablespoons low fat french dressing
4 tablespoons minced sweet pickles
1 tablespoon minced white onion
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
pinch of salt
Mix all of these ingredients together and stick the sauce in the
fridge to chill.

 Once the burgers are done I melt a bit of Daiya Cheddar Style
Shreds on top.  Then it’s time to build the masterpiece.  I
start with a whole wheat bun then layer from there…  burger
with cheese, sweet pickles, minced white onion, shredded lettuce,
special sauce, bun… repeat!  This double decker burger is super
messy to eat, but is delicious all the way through!
