Developed by Pat McInnis of Alligator Pie Catering. If you or anyone you love is a veggie burger fan, you will want to have a stash of these in your freezer at all times. Make them once and you’ll never be satisfied with anything you can buy in the grocery store. A food processor will come in handy here.
