Mozzarella Stuffed Vegan Chicken Burgers – these crispy burgers with melty mozzarella are allergy friendly – soy AND gluten free!
Mozzarella Stuffed Vegan Chicken Burgers
These burgers are my new favorite thing.
I mean, just look at the crispy edges and melty gooey cheese. Fresh homemade buns swiped with a bright basil aioli and peppery arugula piled high. A steaming fresh from the oven Chick-quin patty and marinara… unlike many chicken alternatives, these are soy free, gluten free, totally satisfying and flavor full.
These Chickquin patties are totally great on their own.
Then, we stuffed them with cheese.
Miyoko’s Mozzarella is melty goodness.
The first time I made these, Jason called them Pizza Burgers.
Yep, that works too.
I just love the bright basil and the herby marinara and the peppery arugula and the garlicy corn flakey savory awesomeness that is this sandwich. The stretchy mozzarella surprise is the perfect stuffing for these Italian inspired burgers.
I cannot wait to make them again.
