The first step to burger greatness is making sure your buns are toasted and you can do that just before serving. The next, is to give those patties some high heat for a beautiful crust which you can still get with these high-protein chickpea and mushroom burgers. If you’re vegetarian or completely vegan, replace the egg with the aguafaba from the chickpea can to bind the patties and just leave out the crème fraiche. You can play around with the additions and serve your sliders with some sweet potato fries and onion rings.
