Vegetarian Burger Meal
Burgers are my first love. I think that statement describes it all.
My Restaurant Stint
I had a restaurant called Burgerland and it served street styled burgers and hot dogs with some neat thick shakes. This was in Pune on the prime Dhole Patil Road. But maybe it was too early for comfort for everyone as neither Dominos nor Pizza hut or McDonalds had opened shop in Pune at that time.
The Sinful Burger
I understand Burgers are not a healthy meal but that does not mean that one is not allowed to sin occasionally. To get rid of the slight guilt I have added a salad to this one.
My second love is Baked beans on toast. I generally have this for breakfast and another must have with this combination is a sunny side up egg.
I have tried to combine all my fav items to create a full Burger meal.
Here is my recipe for the same.

For the bread
- 2 Burger Buns
- 2 tbsp of mayonnaise
