Moophrey Vegan Burgers.
I gotta say it again, these and the Cluckphrey fake chicken products have the BEST names for fake meat. But there's more to fake meat than a catchy brand name, so let's dive in here.
Standard veggie burger routine here - little veggie oil in the skillet, few minutes on each side until hot. I toasted up the bun, just to be fancy, and slathered this thing with ketchup. It looked pretty burger-y, but it had kind of a funky smell. I carried on anyway.
Took a big bite of the burger and almost immediately wished I hadn't. It just tasted…bad. So bad that I really wasn't able to spend a lot of time figuring out what flavor of bad was in play here. I did force myself to take a second bite with just the patty to try to narrow down the problem, but all that got me was a confirmation of my strong suspicion that the patty was the problem. I had so little interest in continuing sampling of this burger that I actually just tossed it out. I kept the bun and cooked up another Amy's Quarter Pound Veggie Burger from last week. So no worries, the bun did not go to waste!
Texture - nothing particular stood out over the flavor
Flavor - just…bad
Final grade for this attempt: D-
