  • 4 Morningstar Original Chik Patties
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 2 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 slices vegan mozzarella-style cheese, optional
  • large handful fresh arugula
  • 1 large tomato, cut into thick slices
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
  1. Preheat the oven (or a grill) to 375 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place 4 MorningStar Chik Patties in a single layer. Top each patty with a slice of vegan cheese (optional), and bake for 15-18 minutes until the patties are crispy and the cheese has melted. 

  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add sliced onions and sauté on low for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add a pinch of salt and continue to cook for an additional 10-20 minutes until onions are caramel colored and fragrant.

  3. To assemble the sandwiches, place arugula on the bottom of each bun. Top with a slice of tomato, chik'n pattie, caramelized onions, and BBQ sauce. Serve immediately with your favorite BBQ side dishes
