Morningstar Farms Tomato & Basil Pizza Burger is one of those veggie burgers that are really odd for a veggie burger. This burger in no way tries to taste like a burger, in fact, it tastes like it is supposed to taste like: Pizza. I actually think I like this patty by itself more than I like it on bread. It is very creamy and tastes just like pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese, which is great for people who like pizza, but to be honest, it doesn’t taste as good on bread. Maybe cut it up and put it on Pizza?
I had one of the patties on pasta with some pasta sauce and cheese on top, and it makes a good side dish. You can also eat it without the cheese, possibly try some Nutritional Yeast for a dairy-free cheesy flavor.
It is definitely not a Vegan product,as it contains milk and egg products, something I didn’t check before buying it saying I am a lacto-vegetarian, but oh well. It is better to eat trace amounts than to consume a whole egg, whether in terms of health, or ethics. So This is definitely one of those products that I will not be able to eat after I become vegan.
Healthwise these might not be very good for you either. One patty has 110 Calories in it, 6 grams of fat, and 1.5 grams of Saturated Fat. However, it does have 6 grams of Fiber, and 10 grams of Protein per patty as well, so for the negatives, there is some good. Still a rather junky food, however.
It is pretty expensive as well, like with most Morningstar products, this product has 4 patties for 4 dollars at your local supermarket. I bought this at Food4Less, and while 4 dollars isn’t that much money, it could easily be cheaper.
