When I was out at the shop the other night, my OH asked me to call at our local Sainsburys to get some free from cheese and Quorn ham slices because he wanted to try and make a cheese and ham toastie. This is when I came across these beauties. I hadn’t done a food review in a while so I thought these would be perfect to get back in the game.
Like the No Bull burger from Iceland, these come in at £2 for the pack of 2. Unlike No Bull burger, however, these burgers are found in the fridge and not the freezer. If I had remembered to get a picture of the burger before we started to fry them, you would see what they looked like and that if you didn’t know they were vegan burgers you would think that they were proper mince burgers.
According to the cooking instructions on the packet after seasoning the burger to your desired taste, you only need to fry it on a medium heat for 3 or 4 minutes. We found that however, we needed to fry them for around ten minutes. This could have been due to our cooker not working properly or not waiting long enough for the hob to heat up enough.
While frying them up my OH commented that they didn’t fry like a normal burger. There was no ‘blood’ the way that the No Bull Burger or our homemade burgers had. I thought this was a good thing as it meant less mess to clean up with there being no splatter from the pan but I could be wrong
Once fried up, the burger resembled more a chicken burger than a mince one. The texture of it was also quite different from a normal burger and I’m still not quite sure what to make of it. To me, the taste was lacking something that the No Bull Burger had although again I can’t quite put my finger on what that is. I think that it will take me a few tries before I start to get the taste of these burgers. Although, as the No Bull Burgers are the same price and taste the way that a burger should, I would far rather pay the money for them instead.
Anyway friends, thanks for reading, make sure and like, share, comment and if you have any suggestions please don’t hesitate to gimme a shout! J xxx
