Chopped at Home Mystery Basket Ingredients

My Mystery Basket of Ingredients Contained:

  • Sargento® Sharp Cheddar, Fine Cut
  • Crimini Mushrooms
  • Cauliflower
  • Leeks

Cauliflower Mushroom and Leek Veggie Patty MixI decided to make a veggie patty slider to highlight the flavors of the mystery basket ingredients, so I tossed the cauliflower, mushrooms, and a leek into my food processor. I added garlic, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, and an egg to bind together the veggie patty mixture.

Grilled Veggie Patty Sliders

I grilled the patties on medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side, and then topped them with a generous sprinkling of Sargento sharp cheddar shredded cheese. Sargento is my favorite brand of cheese because their 30 versatile varieties are always cut from blocks of 100% real, natural cheese (yay!).  Keep the patty on the grill for another minute until the cheese melts completely – YUM!

These veggie patties have a softer texture than a traditional burger patty, but they will firm up a bit if you allow them to slightly cool on a wire rack for a minute or two before serving.

I served the veggie patties on toasted slider buns topped with red lettuce and red onion. The combination of flavors is incredible!
