This post is a sponsored post from my friends at Shuman Farms. I am happy to say that my opinion on their incredibly tasty onions is my own.

This Real Sweet onion barbeque burger will change your mind about needing any meat at all in your burgers. Could you eat it as is? Absolutely, but we like to add a meatless option to our sweet onion barbeque. The Beyond Burger goes well with this recipe. However, with this amazing veggie burger, the stars of the sandwich are definitely the veggies. The perfectly sweet onions from Shuman Farms help to really marry the flavors of sweet and BBQ together.


These burgers are absolutely delicious and fun to put together. Grab the kids and have them help to stack up to the veggies. They are: 

  • Vegan
  • A great addition to your family cookout. 
  • Quick to prep! Only ten minutes in total!
  • Are the perfect sandwich for your vegetarian friends, with or without the meat substitute.
