With all the bacon we consume, every now and then we like to do our hearts a favor and bulk up on the veggies. Though the idea of one of those cardboard tasting veggie burgers is less than desirable.

So we revamped the veggie burger into a roasted stack of awesomeness.  These thick cut veggies roast up perfectly and make for an awesome meatless option.

What you end up with is a mouth busting stack of smoky roasted veggies. The whiskey and oil mixture helps to keep the veggies moist at such a high temperature. You get a big messy burger without all the guilt of…well, a big messy burger. Filling, healthy and tasty enough to make carnivores think about converting.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 4

Ingredients:1 large eggplant4 tomatoes2 onions1/2 cup olive oil1/2 cup whiskey1/4 cup apple cider vinager2 tsp liquid smoke1 tbsp garlic powder1 tbsp black pepper1/2 tbsp salt1/2 cup asiago cheese4 buns
Instructions:
Preheat oven to 400. Cut all veggies in to 1/2 inch slices, keeping them as close to even as possible. Using a serrated or bread knife works best. Whisk together all other ingredients, except the cheese and buns. Line 2-3 cooking sheets with foil. Use 1/4 cup of olive oil to grease the pans. Lay out out all of the veggies. Touching and slight overlapping is ok, just make sure they are not stacked. Pour all of the whiskey-oil mixture onto the veggies. Place in oven and cook for 15-20 minutes. Turn and cook for another 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle asiago on to veggies and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Toast buns. Remove veggies and let cool for 2-3 minutes so you can remove without them sticking. Begin stacking on buns as you like and top with sauce of choosing.
