Bzzagent Campaign Review: MorningStar Farms Veggie Burgers

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a life long meat eater. I love chicken, pork, beef, fish, you name it! I was offered the wonderful opportunity from Bzzagent.com to try my first ever veggie burger.

I am not going to lie, while I was excited about trying and reviewing another fabulous product, I was a bit sketchy as I have never had a burger that hadn't previously "moo'd" in it's past life. This was a pretty big deal for me.

So my bzzkit arrived, and I received some wonderful coupons for MorningStar Farms Veggie Products. I decided to play it safe and chose to go with their Grillers Prime Patties.

After trying them, I gotta say they got me! They are beyond delicious. I know it is so hard to believe, but they really do taste just like beef! No joke! They are incredibly delicious! 

I served up our burgers sandwich style on toasted bread with lettuce, mozzarella, and  guacamole dressing and they were out of this world good! I am DEFINITELY going to be stocking up on these burgers this week. I found them locally on sale for about $2.67 for 4 veggie patties. I was amazed at how light they were to be honest. I am sadly so used to grease, that I was pleasantly surprised to be enjoying a nongreasy meal! 

They also cook incredibly fast, so be sure to keep an eye on them while cooking. They definitely cook a lot faster than your standard beef patty.

Each patty is approximately 170 calories with 39% less fat than ground beef.

Here is a video follow-up of our yummy Meatless Monday Meal!
