Morningstar Farms Grillers California Turk'y BurgerAfter having a wonderful experience with Morningstar Farms Grillers Chik'n Veggie Patties, I decided to try the California Turk'y Burger Grillers. Morningstar says, "with a great blend of avocados and tomatoes, this juicy, California-style veggie turk'y burger is a delicious hit from coast to coast. Throw it on the grill, then get to gobbling." These had a ringing endorsement from my boyfriend's parents, too, so I picked up a 4-pack box for $4.59.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 patty (67 grams)
Calories: 90
Total Fat: 5 grams, 8%
Saturated Fat: 0.5 grams, 3%
Sodium: 390 mg, 17%
Carbohydrates: 7 grams
Fiber: 5 grams, 22%
Sugar: < 1 gram
Protein: 9 grams

I must say, the description is pretty accurate! I loved how juicy these were, and the tomato/ avocado blend was perfect. Because this is "turk'y," it tastes somewhat different from the "beef" patties from the company - in a good way! I gobbled mine up right away, without any extra seasoning, and it was delicious.

Each burger provides 90 calories, 5 grams of fat, 0.5 grams of which is saturated (8% and 3% of the daily value), 390 mg of sodium (17% of the DV), 5 grams of fiber (19% of the DV), less than 1 gram of sugar, 9 grams of protein, and 15% of the DV for iron.

Morningstar Farms Grillers Chik'n Veggie PattiesTo be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up a 4-pack of Morningstar Farms Grillers Chik'n Veggie Patties. At $4.59, my purchase didn't break the bank, but I was hoping I'd made the right decision as I've had some poor experiences with chicken substitutes. The website says, "Made with natural ingredients, these perfectly seasoned chik'n veggie patties are grillable, tender, juicy and delicious no matter how you dress them up."

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 patty (67 grams)
Calories: 80
Total Fat: 3 grams, 5%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 350 mg, 15%
Carbohydrates: 7 grams
Fiber: 5 grams, 19%
Sugar: 0 grams
Protein: 9 grams

I got home and heated up one burger for myself and one for my boyfriend. We were so hungry that we did these in the microwave, not on the stove. I zapped the patties for about 2 minutes and served them up with a salad - sort of like a "faux chik'n" salad. We've sampled a lot of veggie burgers, and I must say these were some of the best. They were chewy and really flavorful - plus they actually tasted almost like chicken! They were good in the microwave, so I'm sure they'd be even better on the stove or grilled.

Morningstar Farms Chik'n Nuggets Review

Morningstar Farms Chickn NuggetsMorningStar Farms Chik'n Nuggets are meatless nuggets made from textured soy protein. I popped them in the oven instead of microwaving them and flipped halfway through so both sides got crispy then took them out to nosh. I don't know about you, but unless it's left overs and I'm in a hurry, I find that oven baked nuggets taste much better than the microwaved kind.

These faux-meat chik'n nuggets were so much better than even the Purdue real chicken ones. The texture on the inside is smooth and not stringy or uneven like real chicken can be. The outside gets nice and crunchy and tastes of a slight hint of spices. They go great with a chilled side of ketchup (I'm a condiment person). I made them for my friends the next night (and baked sliced and salted sweet potatoes for healthy 'nuggets & fries'). They're usually the first to call me a crazy health-nut but they absolutely loved them!

Morningstar Farms Mushroom Lovers Burger Review

Morningstar Farms Mushroom Lovers BurgerI recently tried Morningstar Farms Mushroom Lover's Burgers for the first time and they're a new favorite! The texture is more interesting than a regular soy patty because you can actually see large pieces of mushrooms (button and portabella), as well as onions and red peppers. This makes it seem much less processed than some other veggie burgers. My favorite way to eat them is to microwave them for a minute on each side to thaw then spray with Pam and grill on a pan for two or three minutes per side. This gives them a slight crispness on the outside and they stay nice and moist on the inside. I either eat them on whole-wheat bread or sometimes just plain with a slice of American cheese so I can taste the mushrooms better.
