The Mid-West Classic Galley Boy gets a VEGAN MAKEOVER! Introducing the Vegan Galley Boy!

Vegan Galley Boy

There’s not too much to say about this burger other than it’s one of the most simple yet unique burgers I’ve made!

It hails from a place called Swenson’s in Ohio, and it’s got two Special Sauces, and on top of that we are mixing in some brown sugar with our plant-based meat. It sounds weird I know, but it totally works! The sugar gets caramelized and there’s a wonderful sweet and salty flavor to it.

The two sauces are basically a BBQ sauce and a Tartar Sauce, which again, sounds like a weird combo, but I totally dug it!

This recipe is adapted from this ONE HERE!

Here’s a video for The Vegan Galley Boy!
