Felt like burgers today and I’ve wanted to try these for a while. Saw these at Coles and decided today was the day. Was a bit hard to pay $50 a kg for fake burger patties, but ultimately it was $12 total so I decided to give it a go.
You’re supposed to cook them to 75c. I’m not sure if that is for food safety or because their plant based fats melt at that point. They zoomed from 65c to 85c real quick so I took slightly higher than planned.
They were still pretty good.
Browned nicely and had a good Maillard sweetness with an exterior crunch. Burger taste was great. Texture was fine. They didn’t have that oily mouth feel, which was unusual but not unpleasant.
I think a lot of people wouldn’t know they weren’t meat if you didn’t tell them prior.
I’d eat these again.
