GingerBread Burgers


Gingerbread Buns⁣
1 packet active dry yeast (1/4 oz)⁣
1 cup lukewarm milk ⁣
1.8 oz water⁣
60 ml dark molasses⁣
1/3 cup butter, softened at room temperature ⁣
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour ⁣
1 tsp sea salt⁣
1 tsp ground ginger⁣
½ tsp ground cinnamon⁣
¼ tsp ground cardamom⁣

Cutting Vedge™ Veggie Forward Burger
Sweet Potatoes
Apple Vinegar Cider


For the gingerbread buns:
  1. In a bowl combine milk, water, active dry yeast, and molasses. Set aside and let the yeast mixture rise for about 10 minutes. The water should not be too hot or it will kill the yeast. Make sure it has around 35°C / 95 °F. ⁣
  2. In a bowl combine all-purpose flour, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and salt. Add the yeast mixture and stir to combine well, using a spatula. Using your hands, knead into a nice, smooth dough. Knead for about 5 minutes by hand or 2 – 3 minutes in a stand mixer. Add cubes of softened butter and knead the butter into the dough, until there are no more visible pieces left. Knead for about 5 minutes by hand or 3 – 4 minutes.⁣
  3. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap or a kitchen towel. Leave the dough to proof at room temperature for about 60 minutes or until doubled in size.⁣
  4. Lightly flour the dough and transfer it to a clean work surface. Divide the dough into 8 equal parts, using a metal dough scraper or a sharp knife. Take each piece of dough and roll between your hands until you get a perfectly round ball. Place on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure there’s enough room in between the buns. Gently brush each bun with egg wash. Cover with plastic wrap and leave the buns to proof at room temperature for 50 minutes or until doubled in size. Preheat your oven to 395 °F.⁣
  5. Remove the plastic wrap and lightly brush the buns for the second time. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Create steam in the oven. You can either spray some water into the oven before placing the baking sheet with the buns in the oven or you can place a roasting pan filled with 1 cup of water at the bottom of your oven. Then place the baking sheet with buns on the middle rack and bake. Bake the burger brioche buns for about 15 minutes at 375 °F, then carefully remove the roasting pan with water and continue to bake for another 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and transfer the buns to a wire rack to cool.⁣

For the GingerBread Burger:

  1. Cook Cutting Vedge™ Veggie Forward Burger according to package directions.
  2. Cut and roast the sweet potatoes in the preheated oven, turning frequently, until they are soft and golden brown. (up to 30 minutes)
  3. Fill the Gingerbread buns with Cutting Vedge Burgers, the roasted potatoes, lettuce and sprinkle with the vinaigrette.
  4. Enjoy!
