Kid tested and approved
Last night was a sneak attack on the kid. I have been craving a vegie burger for some reason(even though I have never had one, lol) and wanted to try them for dinner. I knew that if I told her what we were really having she would turn her nose up, so mum was the word.
I decided on Boca Fire grilled vegi burgers. Problem one was the cooking instructions. I was not microwaving them for sure but I also did not want to pan fry them! I decided to toss them in the oven even though there were no oven directions. Ok time to pretend I know what im doing …humm, ok 400 sounds like a good temp, but for how long. I first decided on 30 minuets and figured I’d see how they were doing after that. I also decided to toss in a portabella mushroom I had left that needed to be cooked(you know in case the vegie burgers were nasty).
It was a good thing I made all 4! About half way through eating I told Taylor they were vegie burgers. She said “I’m glad you didn’t tell me cause I would not have eaten them”…muahahaha exactly why I didn’t!
The Vegie burger was much better than the portabella and had I not seen it or known it really tasted very much like a regular burger and cold have easily fooled me. My only complaint was that they were supper thin. Tay loved them so much she went back for seconds!
Yumm! Give these a try for a much healthier alternative

I know some people who are vegetarian for religious reasons so at tailgates we always have to buy a box of Boca burgers! It really matters how you cook it up because it can taste like cardboard !ReplyDelete
Glad your children liked it!
Love love love veggie burgers! I mentioned it on Twitter, but give the Boca Bruschetta burgers a try. You may also enjoy Morningstar Farms' sausage. I'm a huge fan.ReplyDelete
Yum! my favorite is the morning star farms black bean burgers. I defrost them a bit in the microwave them pop them in the toaster to finish them off.ReplyDelete
Kids are the biggest food critics. Glad you approved. Boca burgers are yummy!ReplyDelete
