Beyond Burger Patty – My thoughts + easy burger recipes

Today I’m here to give a honest review on BeyondMeat The Beyond Burger Patty (the plant-based patties that look and cook like real meat). Now I am one who is VERY skeptical of veggie burgers because most of them have the texture of mush which I do NOT find appealing at all. So when I kept seeing these “veggie” burger patties that bleed when they cook I was intrigued. I decided to look online and see  “What the hell these things are made from.” And to my surprise it wasn’t soy (YAY) and to my surprise again it was peas (inserts confused face emoji). So I headed to my local Wholefoods and found the patties very hilariously placed in the meat section.

I decided to season the burgers with my favorite seasoning ever because I’m a strong believer in when you want something to taste like the original, SEASON IT LIKE THE ORIGINAL!

McCormicks Montreal steak is my favorite but feel free to use whichever seasonings you have on hand.

I have tried these patties out both ways, on the grill and in a skillet. Grill WINS, nothing beats that smokey char that the grill provides, although the skillet version wasn’t bad either.

You must also make sure you’re careful not to overcook the patties, 2-3 minutes per side is best.

Im going to share with you 2 easy recipes on how to make some delicious plant-based burgers featuring the beyond burger. I hope you guys try these burger recipes out. I definitely LOVED them and this is coming from a girl who loves a good burger. The patties have a great chew and flavor they really remind you of the original thing without the guilt or killing of a beautiful cow. SO, get to your nearest store and try these bad boys out.
