Besides Boca Burgers

What are some meat substitutes, please? I have gotten tired of Boca product. Thanks in advance.

  1. I always really liked the Morningstar Farms imitation chicken patties. On a potato roll with some mayo and pickles, yum. Cheese is good on it too.

    1. I'm particularly fond of the Quorn products. I like the breaded "chicken" patties and the "chicken" patties stuffed with cheese.

        Quorn really is very good but just a note that they are not vegan.

          Good to know, about the vegan part (in case I'm using that for vegan friends). I recently discovered that I do *not* like the Quorn "sausage" links. Ick. I'll stick with the Boca "sausage" breakfast patties instead, on the rare occasion that I want something like that.

            To me Quorn only seems to do fake chicken well. I'm not a vegetarian but I love Quorn chicken nuggets.They taste just as good as the real thing.

      2. I don't eat boca burgers or meat substitutes anymore, but I've heard good things about Dr. Praeger's. I've had it once and it was too long ago to remember, but I thought it was decent.

        Oh, and not a meat substitute but you may want to try tempeh. I know some people who are big meat eaters love tempeh.

          I don't eat Boca or the meat substitutes either but we've picked up those Dr Praeger burgers at Costco a few times...they're actually quite good.

          1. re: Miss Needle

            I got some Dr. Praegers at Trader Joe's and I was unimpressed. Not horrible, just not anything special. I didn't like the texture, which may have been part of my general dislike for the product.
