I am a serious carnivore. No question. I like nothing better than a nice big steak wrapped in bacon. However, my pant size reflects that. I've been looking for healthier alternatives that don't taste like plastic and make me sad.
Hello, MorningStar Farms Grillers.
I personally tried the Grillers Prime. First, I went straight up on a bun. It has a softer texture than meat, but the flavor is spot on. I felt awesome afterwards...I'm not sure if that was purely mental or not.
Later in the week, I was looking for a dinner idea, and remembered the Grillers. I had leftover mashed potatoes and creamed corn, so I sauteed some onions in margarine, then tossed in the last two crumbled up Griller patties.
In a casserole dish, I first put a layer of mashed potato as a crust. Then I added the meat/onion mixture on top, then a layer of creamed corn.
I topped it with another layer of mashed potatoes, then stuck it in a 350 oven for around 20 minutes. and here it is hot from the oven:
You can see the layers here:
It tasted delicious...a nice comfort food with a healthier twist. The kids couldn't even tell it was meatless. I can't wait to try Grillers in other recipes instead of hamburger...spaghetti, tacos, anything and everything.
Thank you, BzzAgent, for the free burgers and the fresh outlook on life!
