VeganMoFo V: Best Thing I Never Ate-Bobby Flay Edition


Have you ever had a meal that changed your freaking life?  That's how I feel today.  I got some sleep, aced my exam, and just finished eating the best burger I've ever had.  This wonderfully awesome gem comes from the burger episode of Best Thing I Ever Ate.  Technically, this should be the adorably Southern Claire Robinson's edition, but it's all about Bobby.

why, hello!
So, Claire was describing a wonderful burger from Bobby's Burger Palace.  This thing is called the Buffalo Burger.  Hot sauce is cooked right into, it and it's topped with this blue cheese sauce (just the sauce recipe, and you probably only need half).  But the kicker is that Claire gets that bad boy crunchified.  We're talking chips on the burger!  Hallelujah, holla back!  This thing is so super killer.

this burger is made of awesome
A couple of weeks ago, while at the library, I spotted Bobby Flay's Burgers, Fries, and Shakes.  I need this thing in my life.  The pictures are gorgeous, and everything seems to be completely veganizable.  Plus, the shake section is totally out of this world!  Everything I made today came from that book.  For the burger, though, I used Tami's All-American Incrediburger (replacing some water with hot sauce and brushing with more hot sauce).  Best homemade veggie burger I've ever had!  I've had that thing marked in American Vegan Kitchen forever!  So glad I finally made it!

ah, my sweet, liquid marshmallow
Last, but certainly not least, I made Bobby's Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake!  So good.  I used Veganomicon's ice cream recipe and just followed Bobby's shake recipe.  It was fantabulous.  The only thing I suggest is to go with unsweetened milk AND use an ice cream that is less sweet if you go with store bought.  All that marshmallow action is enough to make you climb the walls.  Seriously...Bobby Flay is a genius.  If I wasn't he wasn't married, I'd totally let him birth my babies.

Over the top! Looks so good, and with a shake too? I'm in cyber heaven. I LOVE the chips on the burger. How did you veganize the blue cheese sauce? I'm searching for a good bleu cheese flavor analogue.

My 11 year old loves to put chips or fries on his veggie burgers. I can't wait to show him this one.
