Quorn Three Cheese Chicken Crispbakes

It’s always fun to try something new from an established brand, and these Quorn three cheese chicken crispbakes caught our eye right away. They’re part of the Quorn frozen range and present an easy option for those busy weeknights.

They come in at 160 calories each, which certainly qualifies them as a lighter burger. This is great for those who want to have a burger but still watch their weight. The way they are formed means that you can easily eat them on their own, without a burger: the outer crust is very crispy and they hold their form well after cooking. It is not too thick or hard when you bite into them, however. They have a sticky texture on the inside, much as you might expect from melted cheese, as well as chunks of potato.

Asda Beetroot and Root Veg Burger

Asda Beetroot and Root Veg Burger

As soon as I saw this burger, I knew I had met my dream. I LOVE beetroot, and the best part is that J can’t stand to eat it. This means I had these beetroot burgers all to myself! They come with a sachet of beetroot salsa as well, which I was excited to try. They’re frozen, which means you have to defrost the sachet in a cup of boiling water.

Asda Spicy Piri Piri Bean Burgers

This week, we decided to try the Asda Spicy Piri Piri Bean Burgers, which I was a bit apprehensive about. After all, look at all those chillis on the packet! In the end, I actually decided to forgo these in favour of some beetroot burgers which you’ll hear about soon. On the other hand, J was keen to give them a go, and after having a tiny nibble of his, we were able to cobble together a review between us.

Asda Mac ‘N’ Cheese Burger

Asda Mac n Cheese Burger

So here’s a new one. Mac n cheese… in a burger. We were half amused and half sceptical when we first spotted these in the supermarket. It’s a bit of an odd idea, so it would have to go either one of two ways. This has to be the best idea ever conceived, or the worst.

Granose Falafel Mix

Recently we found some falafel mix that looked fairly easy to make, and decided to give it a try. After all, what could be better than almost-instant falafels? The chance to quickly create a delicious veggie burger alternative seems like a dream, and it could be used over and over again for different meals. In fact, you could even use the mix to make a bigger falafel burger rather than separating it into the balls.

Linda McCartney Pulled Pork Burgers

I don’t even know where to begin with these new pulled pork burgers from Linda McCartney. I honestly don’t.

So we picked these up in the supermarket, innocently enough. I’m always game to try a new product, especially if it’s in burger form. These looked pretty interesting, too, because I’ve obviously never eaten pulled pork. J has, and that’s an important thing to remember in a minute. So we grabbed them, put them in the oven, and waited to see how they would come out.

Quorn Vegan Hot & Spicy Burgers

Anyone who reads this blog and hates spicy food, look away now. I know you’re out there because I’ve spoken to some of you, and this burger is just not for you. Even I, made almost immune by J’s insistence on adding a bit of spice to everything, found these burgers to be too hot. Way too hot. So hot it was actually pretty uncomfortable.

Georgia’s Choice Mexican Bean Bakes

This week we found something completely new in the supermarket! That’s not a very regular occurrence these days, so it was pretty exciting (and this is probably why I don’t get invited to many dinner parties). These Georgia’s Choice Mexican bean bakes looked too good to ignore, and the chance to try a new brand was something I just couldn’t pass up.

Asda Mushroom and Spinach Polenta Bakes

This is probably the “burger” with the longest name I’ve tried yet. Not only does it have a long name in the first place, but it also has a subtitle. This is the Asda Mushroom and Spinach Polenta Bakes with creamy mushroom sauce – and believe me, the packaging is a lie. Yes, alright, the bake does look sort of like that, but that’s about one-tenth of the sauce there, and since there are only two bakes in the packet, I guess the other plate was swimming.
