I will admit that I’m not actually a huge fan of walnuts, so I wasn’t instantly drawn to the Walnut burger but I had the chance to sample it at a food show and it really is delicious. It is so different from the other “veggie” aka soy burgers I’ve had – in a good way!
This burger was made famous at the Trempealeau Hotel restaurant in Trempealeau, WI and is their top-selling item. They serve it on a whole-wheat kaiser roll with sprouts, tomatoes and mayo along with a variety of other ways (think stuffed mushrooms, walnut balls and spaghetti, etc.) I’m also trying to send my parents there for a weekend (the hotel looks adorable) if they can ever get away
I know they will be available around the Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa area so check your local co-ops!
I served mine with a salad, broccolini and a spicy sriracha remoulade sauce. In the sauce: 1 Tbsp. sriracha sauce and 1 Tbsp. mayo.
