I have been looking for a quick burger option that I can replace fast food burgers with. The only thing is that they are high in calories and fat and uber expensive. Seriously, these things come in a dozen or so. If you hate them, you are stuck eating them for a LONG time. I looked into the fake meat ones, but I always worried about the taste and texture. I decided to jump and got MorningStar Farms Grillers Prime for my dinner.
The box! (Exciting right?)
The burger still frozen. There are only 4 in the box and they are wrapped in pairs, because you have to cook more than one at a time.
I’m a rebel! I only cooked one! Muahaha! *Ahem*
This is after cooking 7.5 minutes. See, I read the box wrong and didn’t realize you had to flip it over halfway through. This IS the cooked side, though. I did notice one thing about the burger. It was very greasy. Apparently meat-like = greasy.
All dressed up for my mouth. I also had onions and ketchup under the lettuce there. Ritz sour cream and onion cracker chips on the side
The taste itself was actually not bad. I knew it wasn’t a real burger, but didn’t care. It did, kind of, get lost in the bun and toppings though. I could detect a slight crunchiness to the patty when I bit in at first. The further in I got, the less crunchy it was. I could definitely tell from the texture that it wasn’t a burger. It is a recognizable texture that I used to get form the spicy chicken patties they no longer make (or that was Boca, I can’t remember). I have 4 more burgers to eat and I am going to try cooking them in the Griddler and toaster oven, too. But, based on this experience, I don’t think I would buy them again
