In all I tested four boxes of Quorn hamburgers. Two boxes of regular hamburgers and two boxes of cheeseburgers. Now I am a fan of veggie burgers. So I decided to make these as I normally eat other brands.
Now before the recipes. Let me say I am impressed about this product. I tried by itself, following the instructions on the box. I made them in the oven. Just like regular beef hamburgers, they are pretty tasteless without any condiments. And like the chick’n cutlets: the texture is just right. I would argue with most people that veggie burgers are pretty much all the same. And what sets these apart from other brands is the texture. It reminds of the MorningStar Farms® Grillers® 1/4 Pounder my default favorite veggie burger ever! I can see myself buying these burgers -if my grocery store had them, but then again that is a discussion for another post-.
My only dislike about these were in the cheeseburgers. They tasted ok. But was this product meant to taste like a cheeseburger? Well, it didn’t. I have to double check because as I am writing this review I am thinking this product may have nutritional yeast, a product many vegans claim to taste like cheese -which I particularly don’t-. But then again I have to double check. Don’t get me wrong, bottomline is I couldn’t find any difference between the regular hamburgers and the cheeseburgers. Did any of you? Or was it just me.
Now to the awesome recipes. I did three. The first one isn’t really a recipe. It was basically cooking the hamburgers according to the instructions on the box and I sprinkled them with a little Adobo Goya -I think I am addicted to adobo-.
The second recipe was:
Fake bacon cheeseburger
- 1 Quorn hamburger/cheeseburger
- 2 slices of veggie bacon
- 2 thin slices of avocado, palta or aguacate
- 2 slices of mozzarella cheese
- 1 burger bun
This is an assembly recipe. Prepare the burger according to the box -I used an indoor grill- and sprinkle it with olive oil and adobo. The order is:
- Bottom bun with mustard
- Slices of avocado, palta or aguacate
- Top bun with a little mayo
You can get fancy and use some awesome bun as well and toast it on the grill. By the way, try this recipe replacing the burger with a Portabella mushroom.
The third recipe is the same but take out the avocado and replace the mozzarella with blue cheese. OMG I want one now.
