  1. That actually sounds pretty good, but I'm a big Dr Praeger fan.

      oh I might give it a shot. but my soul is already oxidizing and tarnished.

        Oh yeah, nothing to lose. My husband actually likes White Castle burgers so we go but I don't eat anything, this could work out swell.

    2. I don't know about the apocalypse, but that certainly is an abomination that should offend both vegetarians and meat eaters on an equal basis.

      White Castle purists arise! You have nothing to lose but your memories.

        Why do vegetarians keep trying to make things that taste like meat?

        1. re: genoO

          Dr Praeger doesn't taste like meat, not that I don't like meat! But it's a nice change occasionally and lots easier to digest too. Plus I really like the avocado touch.

              Correction....meat tastes AWESOME!!

              the better (IMO) veggie burgers don't try to make their patties taste like meat.

              But they're really tasty, and I like them.

              1. re: genoO

                Dr praegers veggie burgers taste like vegetables, in no way is it trying to imitate meat (morning star and boca burger do though)

                      I love that the ham is chicken flavored :)

                  1. re: genoO

                    genoO: clearly you don't know much about dr. praeger burgers.
                    just because a patty is placed in a white bread bun, doesn't make it "taste like meat" nor does it mean that the patty producer is trying to make a product that "tastes like meat."

                    1. re: westsidegal

                      I agree -- I think that's part of the derision with veggie burgers/patties/flattened disks.

                      The protest is always that the don't taste like meat -- once you grasp the concept that the producers didn't even try to make them taste like meat, it's easier to try them with an open mind.

                      So it's all about managing expectations...!

                      I love veggie burgers -- it's not unusual for me to bypass the various meat-based burgers and go for a veg, because I like them. I have a particular soft spot for the ones served in a half a grilled portabello mushroom, then served on a bun with the usual burger accoutrements. Yum, yum, and yum.

                1. I know, I know...late nights and greasy sliders.

                  ....but I like veggie burgers!

                  1. Armageddon is upon us.................

                    1. I am by no maens a vegetarian, but I love me some veggie burgers! I would totally try that if I wasn't in California where there are no White Castles :(

                        i believe that the veggie burgers served at THE HABIT chain in southern california are the same Dr. Praegers only BETTER because they are in a regular bun with all the normal burger toppings available and some that are not normal but i love such as AVOCADO.
