Morningstar Farms Meat Lovers Vegan Burgers Review

Morningstar Farms Meat Lovers Vegan Burgers

There’s a lot of variety in the world of veggie burgers. Some options, like Beyond Burgers, go above and beyond to masquerade as real meat. Other patties embrace the flavor of vegetables and don’t try to taste like meat at all. If you prefer a meatier veggie patty, the Morningstar Farms Meat Lovers Vegan Burgers are designed to cater to your particular tastes. At least, that’s the claim. We decided to taste these see if these patties are really made with meat lovers in mind.

These patties are substantially thicker than your average veggie burger, which makes them tricky to cook in a pan. Morningstar Farms actually recommends cooking this on medium heat for 20 minutes, but doing that might leave you with a burnt burger. We cooked our patty for a little over 10 minutes, and while it did start to blacken as it cooked, it still tasted perfectly fine.

We were a little worried that the larger-than-average patty would fall apart once it was thawed, but it held together nicely. We were able to build a burger without any issues. While the burger we made isn’t anything special, we think this looks pretty good on a bun!

This doesn’t taste like real meat, but it is a lot juicier than your average veggie patty. If you’re looking for a meatless burger that you can serve to carnivores, and you don’t want to splurge on Beyond Burger patties, this is a pretty solid option. It’s got a slightly smoky flavor to it that’s pretty appealing, especially when the burger is doused in ketchup.

In addition to being pretty tasty, it’s also fairly filling. These are quarter-pound patties with 27 grams of protein per serving, which means they’re pretty satiating! Unfortunately, there are only two patties per bag instead of the usual four, which means that you’ll be spending more per patty.

The Morningstar Farms Meat Lovers Vegan Burgers might not be the best option for true meat lovers. This patty doesn’t really mimic the flavor or gristle of real meat. However, if you’re looking for a juicy, substantial veggie burger that doesn’t taste like vegetables, these smoky patties are a solid choice.
