Truffle Oil Veggie Burger with Homemade Fries

by Cindy Yanasha Angulo in ,

Disclaimer: the burger is not homemade - it's Gardenburger brand (I'll post a homemade veggie burger recipe soon!) but this twist on your typical burger & fries is decadent and EASY!  Thanks to this recipe, I'm obsessed with truffle oil! 


Time:  ~30 mins to depending on if your toppings are pre-sliced.


  • 2 Gardenburger brand veggie burgers (original or flavored, I used original)
  • 2 Sesame buns
  • 1 tablespoon truffle oil
  • 2 slices of pepper-jack cheese (or cheese of your choice)
  • Toppings of your choice, I used:
  • Baby argula
  • Sliced grape tomatoes
  • Sliced pepperoncinis
  • Salt/pepper to taste


  1. Grill burger patties (I used a stovetop grill, you can pan-sear them)
  2. When the burgers are almost done, add sliced pepper-jack cheese and allow it to melt before removing from the grill. 
  3. Brush truffle oil on all sides of the bread, and lightly toast them.
  4. Place burgers on buns, layer with your toppings. 
  5. Enjoy!


Homemade Fries

Time: 30 mins


  • 2 potatoes, washed and patted dry
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • Salt/pepper to taste


  1. Slice potatoes on a mandoline with the skinny blades (TIP: slice them long-ways so they look like fries!)  You can use a knife to cut the potatoes, just ensure that they are thin pieces so they cook fast and crispy.
  2. Heat oil to medium ~350 and fry the potato slices until almost golden, but just cooked through
  3. Strain potatoes out of the pot, let them sit to cool as you fry more.  
  4. After about 10 mins, put the fries back in the fryer and raise the heat to medium-high.  The fries will be golden and crispy on the outside, but amazingly soft and delicious on the inside! 
  5. Toss with salt and black pepper if desired - you can also add some grate Parmesan cheese if you're feeling adventurous!
  6. Enjoy!
