    Dr. Praeger's California Veggie Burger - 1
    Romaine Lettuce - handful
    Tomatoes - 1 (sliced into rings)
    Onion - 1 (sliced into rings)
    Sweet/Regular Pickles
    French's Yellow Mustard - 1/2 tsp (more or less)... secret ingredient
    For the Ketchup-Mayo-Cilantro Sauce:

    Light Mayo - 1 dollop (see below)
    Ketchup - 1 dollop (see below)
    Cilantro - 1 tbsp (chopped)
    Black Pepper - to taste
    Water - 1/2 tbsp (to help dilute the sauce)


1. Begin by cooking your burger on the stove or toaster oven. I just used a stove, I feel it tastes better and it's quicker. Take a nonstick pan on medium heat, you do not need to add any oil/butter, just place the burger and keep checking to see when to flip. Should take about 5 minutes tops.

2. Also toast/grill your bread. Again, I just used the stove.

3. Get your veggies together. Here is what you'll need.

4. Slice the onions and tomatoes. The lettuce and pickles should require no effort.

5. Here are the sauces you will need.

Make the Ketchup-Mayo-Cilantro sauce.

6. Take a dollop of light-mayo.

7. Take a dollop of ketchup.

8. Combine.

9. Add cilantro.

10. Add black pepper and a little water.

Now assemble.

11. Take a slice of bread.

12. Add romaine lettuce.

13. Add tomatoes.

14. Add onions.

15. Add the veggie burger.

16. Spread some mustard.
