I was pleased to be invited into the MorningStar Farms BzzCampaign. I love being a BzzAgent and getting to try products at no cost and having coupons to share with friends. I have enjoyed every variety of MorningStar Farms I tried! They were all easy to prepare, packed with nutrition and loaded with amazing taste and not what I expected from a veggie burger. The texture was good whether prepared stove top or in the microwave. I prepared the MorningStar Grillers Prime by heating them up stove top in a cast iron skillet. I served them with mushroom gravy. This was simply Fat Free Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup topped with Portabella mushrooms. With this meal we had Japanese style noodles and glazed steamed carrots. It was simple and quick to prepare and thoroughly enjoyed! The Grillers Prime have 39% less fat than Ground Beef and are 170 calories each One of my favorite MorningStar Veggie Burgers was the Spicy Black Bean Burger. It has 73% less fat than a beef burger, and only 120 calories! I fix this several ways and enjoy them several times a week and especially for Meatless Monday! I enjoy these on a bun with spinach instead of lettuce and without a bun. One of my favorite ways to eat them is on a bed of Crispy Corn’n Peppers seasoned with fresh Cilantro and topped with sharp cheddar cheese! The Spicy Black Bean Burgers have a terrific taste and I love seeing the black beans and corn and rice inside them! The Southwest flavor of these make them perfect for those type dishes, Taco’s, Fajitas, Quesadillas and southwest salads. The burgers come frozen and are packaged 4 to a box but conveniently have 2 packs of 2 inside. They make a convenient and quick meal and are an excellent way to eat healthier and add more vegetables in our diet. I highly recommend them. If you like Southwest flavors, I know the Spicy Black Bean Burger won’t disappoint! I have included photos of how I enjoyed MorningStar Farms Veggie Burgers! I also created two Pinterest boards for those that like recipes and photos!
