READY IN: 40mins


  • 1
    large onion, cut in half vertically and sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 12
    cup water
  • 1
    (10 ounce) package frozen veggie burgers (or meatless soy protein burger)
  • 8
    slices reduced-calorie whole wheat bread
  • butter-flavored cooking spray
  • salt and pepper


  • Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray, place over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion, saute 12 minutes or until very tender, adding water, 1 tablespoon at the time, to prevent scorching. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Remove onion from pan, keep warm.
  • Cook meatless burgers in pan according to package directions.
  • Divide cooked onion evenly over 4 slices of bread and top each with 1 burger patty and 1 cheese slice. Cover with remaining 4 slices of bread.
  • Place pan over medium heat until hot. Coat one side of each bread slices with cooking spray and place 2 sandwiches, coated side down, in pan, and cook about 3 minutes or until brown.
  • Coat top sides of sandwiches with cooking spray, turn sandwiches over, and cook for about 3 minutes or until brown.
  • Repeat procedure with remaining sandwiches.
  • If you own a indoor grill (such as George Forman) you can also make them, once assembled, on the grill and you dont' have to turn them over. Enjoy.
