Super Packed And Crunchy Homemade Veggie Burger

Sorry it’s been a while since I wrote: I worked the last 7 out of 9 days so did not have much time for cooking. I will try to make it up to you with the fact that those things I did cook were phenomenal. Let’s start with this loaded veggie burger.

Then I somehow stumbled across a recipe for Shepherd’s Pie with mashed potatoes on top and decided to make my own. I am glad I did, it was good, hearty comfort food. Living in California I don’t miss the cold, but this meal would have been perfect for a cold winter day.
