Baybaaay, when I tell you!!!!! The Dr. Praeger's Perfect Burger is out here giving The Beyond Burgera WHOLE marathon-run for their money!! Let the Plant Based Burger Battle begin!
I stumbled across this amazing find while perusing the aisles of my local Costco. Now, one of my best girlfriends hipped me to Dr. Praeger's Spinach Cakes while in Cincinnati a few years ago and they were delicious by themselves as a side, but not on a bun. See, I don't particularly care for veggie patties that are of a bean and/or potato consistency. It feels too heavy on me like carb-on-carb. So the mimic of an animal-like texture protein patty, say that of a Beyond, Impossible, or my new discovery, Dr. Praeger's, is ideal!
But I digress.
When perfectly seared by adding a bit of Abstract Spice on both sides to pefectly season and create a delicious crust, this 'burger' surpasses the Beyond Burger HANDS DOWN!! To my Beyond lovers, you know that greasy residue and strange scent that comes from the purchased frozen Beyond Burger patty once thawed? Well those two things tend to discourage some of the healthful eaters out here attempting to eliminate animal protein from their diet. Fortunately, the Dr. Praeger's burger is free of these unfortunate characteristics. No greasy residue, and no strange odor. This burger patty is similar in color and frozen when purchased, but is individually wrapped, unlike the 2-patty packaged Beyond. Both are similar in how they cook up, but the Dr. Praeger's patty has a texture SO much more similar to that of an animal protein burger, my hubby had to keep double checking to make sure he wasn't eating the turkey burgers by mistake!
What's more, the price for an 8-pack of these delicious soy and gluten free, 20g of pure protein packed, individually wrapped 'burgers' is approximately $12 a box! That's a good $1 cheaper per patty than that of The Beyond Burger!
So if you're any where near a Costco, be sure to pick up a box of these AMAZING Dr. Praeger's Perfect Burger patties. Deliciously sensible, certified, kosher, sustainable, and vegan!
