Quorn Cheeseburger

This will likely be a short one, because I don't have too much to say about Quorn Cheeseburgers.

I used the skillet method of cooking - teensy bit of oil, flip it a few times. Definitely make sure to cook over not too high a flame, otherwise it'll brown before the middle is hot, and that's no fun.

I tried this plain and on a bun with some ketchup. Plain it was a little weird, but the ketchup and bun masked the weirdness nicely. The texture was good - chewy without begin rubbery, tender without being mushy.

But wait, this is supposed to be a cheeseburger. There's cheese in the ingredients list, but no cheese flavor in the burger. That was kind of a letdown. If you're going to call something a cheeseburger, you should be able to taste it.

The experience:
Texture - nicely chewy but not too chewy
Flavor - not terrible, but better when masked with a bun and toppings

Final grade for this attempt: C

  1. I prefer the plain burgers from Quorn, which has a nice European flavor. These have an odd taste from the cheese, at least in comparison.

    1. I've got the plain burgers in my freezer too - I'll be sure to try them side-by-side with the cheese burgers when I bust them out.
