Impossible Burger with Special Sauce

Featured at Oliver’s Market this week are an array of exceptional plant-based products, and this recipe uses a meat-substitute that is one of our favorites, Impossible Burger Patties. A truly believable meat-substitute, these burgers will please vegans and non-vegans alike!


  • Serves: 2 servings
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, vegan if you’d like
  • 2 tablespoons sweet relish
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 burger buns
  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • 8 ounces/2 Impossible Burger Patties
  • mustard, dill pickle slices, sliced red onion and tomato and iceberg lettuce leaves, for serving


  1. Make the spicy special sauce: Stir together the mayonnaise, relish, ketchup and cayenne in a small bowl.

  2. Toast 2 burger buns until golden brown.

  3. Heat a large, well-seasoned cast-iron skillet, griddle or nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add oil to the hot skillet so that the bottom is completely coated with 1 inch or more and heat until it looks wavy. Carefully slide the patties into the shimmering oil and cook until the bottoms are evenly dark brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Slide a thin spatula under a patty, wiggling if needed to help release it from the pan, and carefully flip. Cook another 2 minutes and remove from pan.

  4. Meanwhile, divide the special sauce among the bun bottoms. You should have a thick coating. Spread mustard all over the bun tops. Place the hot patties onto the bun bottoms. Shingle a layer of pickles over each patty, then top with the onion, tomato, lettuce and top buns. Serve immediately.
