Plug for the new Field Roast Burgers

I just try these yesterday, skillet fried in a bit of canola oil, and they are SPECTACULAR. Super flavorful, juicy, toothsome. Definitely the best store-bought veggie burger I've tried. Field Roast has yet to disappoint me.

  1. Thanks for the tip! I just checked them out on the Field Roast website and they look great.....a little high in fat maybe (24g/patty), which certainly accounts for the "juiciness". Still, it will be a nice change from my bean-based ones occasionally!

        I unfortunately threw away the nutritional info, but it was definitely different than the info sheet there. I want to say the serving size was 1 burger and was 160 calories, so I think the 24g of fat is also inaccurate for the non-food service package. I'll take a look next time I'm at the store.

          Huh. Weird.
          I'll totally look for them next time my WF has their stuff on sale, i keep going to bbqs and would be great to bring one of these!

          1. re: Ttrockwood

            Nope, I'm nuts. Here's the nutritional info:
            Calories: 340, 220 from fat
            Total fat: 24g, Sat 8g

            Still worth it, IMO, but def. less "healthy" than your everyday veggie burger. Given that I'm typically sad that I can't indulge like omnis can, I'm totally fine with the nutritional info.

              Whatever, not like you eat them every meal....

              I actually had a few of their smaller breakfast sausages the other day and give those two big thumbs up! Waaaayyy better than the version Yves makes (and i hate boca and morningstar products anyways).

    1. I love their sausages. I just wished they were not so hard to find.

      1. They seem to be expanding their product line at warp speed lately! Which is awesome. Aside from the price anyways (umm, $7 for 6oz of their deli slices?!)

        The sausages are my favorite still-and go over well with the omnis who try it too! I'll look for the patties, my whole foods seems to put their products on sale with some frequency.

          My dad is allergic to soy so the burger is good news, though I must say except for their sausages I find their loaf & slices leaden and rather unappetizing. I had a friend who fooled her entire family with those sausages for July 4th. More power to her!

            Yeah the loaf is not my thing either.... Has your dad tried Quorn products? They're vegetarian (not vegan since it has egg) and soy free, i really like the meatless balls. All their stuff is in the freezer section, made mostly from a mushroom protein- but doesn't taste mushroomy at all.

              Thanks and yes we basically live off Quorn as he only became veg in his 70's and needs the 'meat' (even though he knows it's not). I love their meatballs, wonderful texture and I agree there is no mushroomy taste at all....For loaves I make Seventh Day Adventist loaves and they have excellent recipes.http://www.seventhdayadventistamersha...

                Wow- its never too late to go veg! Good for him.
                Those recipes look great! On the other thread i replied to with the thread of veg*n blogs, lots of "meat" recipes that are more options and ideas.
                The ppk beet burger is popular with my omni friends- and looks very meaty too! I've also made it into balls and it freezes well (cooked first)

                Well, it's not really made from mushrooms, it's a fungus in that family but it's lab-propagated and bears little resemblance to mushrooms.
